How Long Does Dental Bonding Last?

A dental bonding procedure can be used to repair many cosmetic dental issues and restore your smile. Dental bonding can be a quick, durable, and inexpensive alternative to other cosmetic procedures. Changing the length of a tooth, fixing a chipped tooth, or closing gaps between teeth can all be accomplished with dental bonding. It can be completed in one appointment without anesthesia. Usually, dental bonding lasts between five and ten years. Over time, the composite material can wear down due to wear and tear.

How Does the Dental Bonding Process Work?

In most cases, dental bonding only requires one visit to our office, and no enamel is removed. Our bonding process involves gently etching your tooth with a mild acid solution. As a result, the composite material will bond better to the tooth’s surface because the surface is rough. In this case, the bonding material is tooth-coloured and is applied to the area. A UV light cures the bonding. As soon as the bonding material has cured, the tooth is polished and shaped to match the surrounding teeth. A bonding treatment usually takes between 30-60 minutes, depending on the severity of the correction and the number of teeth involved.
