How long does tooth bonding last?

If you have a flawed, chipped, discolored, or misshapen tooth, and you want a noninvasive and inexpensive cosmetic dental treatment, tooth bonding in Prairieville may be the best option for you.

Tooth bonding relies on tooth-colored resin and a skilled dentist. Composite resin is also used to treat dental cavities aesthetically.

Your dentist spreads the resin across the problematic tooth to correct the flaw. Then we use a special light to set the resin and finish up with a polish.

How long tooth bonding lasts depends on the bite force and habits of the patient. A misaligned bite can put undue wear on the composite filling. Additionally, proper brushing and flossing habits, coupled with regular dental visits, are crucial to the longevity of all dental treatments.

Typically, bonding lasts between four and ten years. After that it may be time to consider a redo. The good news is that bonding is typically not expensive. It is never invasive, and there is never a recovery time causing you to miss work or important events.
