What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding uses tooth-colored dental resin to reshape and restore your teeth. In this process, Dr. Sweeney will clean your tooth, roughen it up with a special acid, and then apply the bonding material directly to the tooth. Using UV light and special instruments, she will sculpt and shape the tooth to improve its appearance.

Dental bonding can cover up stained teeth, fill in gaps between the teeth, restore uneven or misshapen teeth, and much more. It’s also relatively inexpensive compared to treatments like veneers, often requires no drilling, and can be done in just one appointment.

How Long Will a Bonded Tooth Last?

This depends on how well you care for your smile. The average lifespan of bonding is 5-8 years, but if you maintain good oral health and avoid habits that can damage your bonded tooth, it may last much longer.

So make sure you brush and floss regularly after treatment and see Dr. Sweeney for six-month checkups. Also, don’t do things like chew hard foods or bite non-food objects like pencils or erasers with your bonded teeth. You also should not use them to tear tape, open packages, or for other such purposes. Doing these things could shorten their lifespan and damage them prematurely.
