How does tooth bonding work?
During the tooth bonding procedure, a tooth-colored resin material will be placed over the blemish you are trying to conceal. Tooth bonding works best to address the following issues:
- repairing minor chips or cracks
- concealing bleach resistant stains or discoloration
- filling in gaps between the teeth
- lengthening a tooth that is shorter than the rest
A small amount of enamel may need to be removed to make space for the bonding material; however, this is considered a minimally invasive procedure that should not cause pain or discomfort. The resin is applied over the blemish, hardened to the tooth using ultraviolet light, and shaped down to seamlessly blend in with your smile. We ensure the bonding material does not interfere with your bite pattern or brush against the inside of your lip.
How long does tooth bonding last?
Tooth bonding can last for several years if you maintain good at-home oral hygiene routines and continue to visit with your dentist once every six months. Tooth bonding can be easily reapplied over time if needed.
