I Want My Dental Bonding To Last - Here Is What To Do
Posted on 4/17/2023 by Dr. Hallas
Dental bonding is a common procedure that many people go through. It involves placing a dental material to bond a crack or gap between teeth. Dental bonding is popular for addressing small dental problems and is also budget-friendly. There is no reason to avoid dental bonding if a dentist recommends it because unlike what you think, bonding can last long if you take care of it properly. If you are scheduled for dental bonding or you have already received one and are wondering if there are ways you can make it last longer, here are a few things you can attempt.
Get a Strong Bonding Material
Dentists use different kinds of bonding materials. Make sure that you understand the benefits of each material and ask the dentist to use the best one. Get one that feels and looks more natural to your teeth while also being able to last long. Do not let the price lure you. Sometimes, a more expensive bonding material may not last as long as a cheaper one. So try to take your time to learn and understand how each material functions so that you can easily figure out the right one for you. Also, realize that different bonding materials are meant for different teeth. If you are receiving dental bonding for the back teeth, make sure it is very strong and can withstand the force of chewing. Therefore, discuss your options with our prosthodontist.
Keep up with Dental Hygiene
To ensure your dental bonding endures for long, ensure you maintain proper dental hygiene. It is also important that you keep abreast with your dental checkups to ensure the bonding material is functioning properly and your teeth and gums are in good shape. You do not want to suffer decay or infection. You can expect bonding to last for about 3 to 10 years depending on the material and how you care for it.
