FAQs About Dental Bonding Answered by our Riverwalk Dental Group Dentists
When you have dental problems that affect the appearance of your teeth, you might be self-conscious about them. Dental bonding offers a way to improve how your teeth look. Our dentists here at Riverwalk Dental Group offer the answers to some frequently asked questions they receive about dental bonding.
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a process that involves applying composite resin to flawed or damaged teeth. This composite resin is tooth-colored, which offers a natural appearance.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding helps correct dental flaws that affect a tooth’s appearance, which can improve your self-confidence. This process can be done in one visit rather than requiring several visits.
How Long Does Dental Bonding Last?
Dental bonding usually lasts for about ten years. It can wear out sooner if you don’t properly care for your teeth or if you grind your teeth.
How Do I Care for Dental Bonding?
Avoid drinking coffee and other beverages that can stain dental bonding for the first couple of days. Make sure you brush your teeth regularly and see our dentist for routine cleanings, and your dental bonding should stay in good condition.
What Happens During the Dental Bonding Procedure?
During a dental bonding procedure, our dentist removes a small amount of enamel to prepare your tooth. When it is ready, our dentist applies the composite resin and covers it with a bonding agent.
Am I a Good Candidate Dental Bonding?
If you have one or more teeth that are chipped, discolored or decayed, you might be a good candidate for dental bonding. Our dentist will let you know if this treatment is suitable for you.
