Tooth bonding is an application of a tooth-coloured composite resin used to repair a decayed, chipped, discoloured, or misshape tooth. Bonding is considered a cosmetic procedure to help enhance the tooth to look as natural as possible. The benefit of bonding is the most straightforward and least expensive procedure in cosmetic dentistry.
The benefit of tooth bonding is:

  • An improvement appearance of your smile
  • Chipped, damage, decay or fractured due to trauma injury
  • Bruxism (known as teeth grinding)
  • Gaps or uneven shaped and discoloration
  • Exposed tooth root that needs to be covered. The bonding’s lifespan depends solely on how you maintain your oral health to avoid any damage. The bonding materials should last between three and ten years. You should pay careful measurements to your oral health and dental hygiene to ensure maximum longevity.
  • Avoid chewing on ice and complex objects of habit (i.e. Plastics, pens, fingernails)
  • Brush your teeth twice a day, gently, for two minutes a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste.
  • Floss thoroughly in between your teeth once a day
  • Maintain a healthy diet that is low in sugar and acidic concentration
  • Do not use tobacco products
  • Avoid any food or beverages that can stain your teeth

If you are a chronic teeth grinder when you sleep, consider a mouthguard. Ask your dentist if tooth bonding is the best choice for you. Your dentist will be able to offer you specialize insights into which options will be best for your needs.
