Tooth bonding is a simple and conservative treatment to restore the shape and function of your teeth. Your dentist uses a tooth-colored resin that adheres to your teeth, and it can fix many issues. Tooth bonding can be used to repair or restore broken or chipped teeth and to close gaps between teeth. Tooth bonding can also cover stains on the surface of the tooth.
It is important to care for bonded teeth with the same good hygiene practices for natural teeth, such as brushing and flossing, as recommended. Dental bonding will stain similarly to natural teeth, so it is best to abstain from coffee, red wine, tobacco products, and other staining substances. A bonded tooth should last approximately 3 to 10 years with proper dental hygiene.
