Why is Bonding Done?

A dentist near you can help you determine whether you need bonding. Tooth bonding is done to repair teeth or to improve the appearance of teeth. Because bonding can be done for a couple of different reasons, it’s very popular.

What is the Bonding Process?

The entire bonding process takes about 30 to 60 minutes. This quick procedure does not typically require anesthesia.

The first step is choosing a shade of composite resin. The shade the dentist chooses for you will match the color of your teeth. Then, the dentist will roughen the surface of the teeth. This helps the bonding material to bond to the teeth.

The dentist will then apply the material to the teeth and shape it. From there, the material can harden. To help with the hardening and shaping processes, the dentist often uses light or laser. Once that is done, the dentist may shape the teeth further. Finally, the teeth are polished.

Is Bonding Permanent?

Bonding is not permanent. The longevity can vary depending on a number of factors. These are some of the determining factors:

  • Oral hygiene habits. When you take proper care of your teeth, your teeth will be healthier overall. This applies to your bonded teeth as well.
  • The amount of bonding done. Depending on your needs, our dentist will do more or less bonding. The amount of bonding can play a role in how long the bonding lasts.

If you have bonding done, our dentist will make recommendations so the procedure can last as long as possible.
