Topeka dentists Drs. Carrie Peterson and Ben Rutherford may recommend dental bonding as a quick and reliable treatment to repair chipped or cracked teeth or to enhance a smile flaw.
Dental bonding refers to a composite resin that your cosmetic dentist applies to your tooth's surface. It is shaded to match your existing teeth and to blend in with your smile seamlessly.
Generally, this popular cosmetic dental treatment can be done in just one dental visit, and often without the need for anesthetic.
Dental Bonding Can Last Up to 10 Years
Topeka patients can greatly improve the lifespan of their tooth bonding with proper care and maintenance.
Variables that can impact your treatment's longevity include harmful habits like biting your nails, chewing on ice, grinding your teeth, chewing pens, or eating too many hard foods or candies.
While dental bonding can be a durable method for treating damaged or stained teeth, it is not a permanent solution and may need a touch-up.
Coffee and wine drinkers should note that dental bonding material isn't as stain-resistant as other restorations, and you may develop stains by smoking or drinking dark-colored beverages.
Keeping your cosmetic treatment maintained also involves daily brushing and flossing, along with routine visits to your dentist.
