Also known as adhesive dentistry, dental bonding deals with the adhesion or bonding of tooth-colored resin materials to the natural substance of the teeth, enamel, and dentin. The dental procedure improves the overall appearance of teeth by restoring broken, chipped, stained, cracked, and abnormally spaced teeth. Unless there’s a need for restoration, anesthesia is unnecessary during the bonding procedure.
A dentist applies the tooth-colored resin material to the actual tooth to improve the appearance of the teeth. If the bonding procedure happens to be at the front teeth, minimal preparation is enough for the treatment process. The dental bonding cost may vary from one dental office to another.
What are the Pros and Cons of Dental Bonding
Cost-Effective – Dental bonding is one of the most affordable dental solutions when it comes to improving the appearance of teeth and smile.
Saves Time – Since there’s no need for multiple sessions, you can complete the dental treatment in a single visit to your dentist.
Convenience – Dental bonding is one of the most convenient solutions to your dental problems because it can address the issue in a single visit.
Durability Issues – The tooth-colored resin material does not last much longer compared to crowns and veneers.
Prone to Stains – Unlike crowns and veneers, dental bonding is prone to staining over time. The longer you have it on, the more stain builds on the resin.
Dental bonding is a great option if you want a quick fix to your simple dental problems. Unfortunately, it’s not a permanent solution if you’re looking for something that will last for decades or more.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Bonding
How Do I Care for My Bonded Teeth?
There’s no special care for your bonded teeth. You should do your regular dental care by brushing and flossing your teeth every after a meal and before you sleep at night.
How Long Does Dental Bonding Last?
Dental bonding may last anywhere from 4 to 8 years, depending on the location of the restoration treatment and other factors. Successful dental bonding procedures may last longer, though. Unfortunately, they aren’t durable, like crowns and veneers.
