There’s something extra frustrating about tiny tooth imperfections. When you’re dealing with something glaringly obvious, it makes it easy to seek treatment. However, we often find that patients feel a bit embarrassed about smaller concerns, such as little chips or cracks, because they think perhaps minor esthetic damage is not as important. We would like to reassure you that we understand your feelings regarding your smile – ever detail counts, even the smaller ones, which is why we suggest you consider dental bonding. Already ready for this cosmetic treatment that can camouflage little problems, fill spaces, and lengthen too-short teeth? If you’re hesitating because you still have some questions, look over the following information to help you make a final decision.
Will Bonding Last?
If you choose bonding to improve the beauty of your smile, you will be happy to find out that the results may last many years. The life of your treatment depends heavily on your dedication to providing your smile with excellent care. Fortunately, as long as you take good care of your teeth and gums, you can expect your bonded tooth to remain beautiful for up to approximately 10 years.
Is Dental Bonding Difficult to Maintain?
No, just like your natural teeth, a bonded tooth requires daily care. You will continue brushing your teeth twice a day with gentle, non-abrasive products (non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristle toothbrush). You should also continue flossing once a day. What you should consider to prolong the life of your bonding (as well as your teeth) is avoiding anything that may result in physical damage or wear-and-tear. For instance, do you bite your nails? Chew on hard objects like pens as a habit? Cut these things out to protect the beauty of your smile.
Is This Treatment Costly?
No, dental bonding is prized both for its ability to offer beautiful results as well as its exceptional cost effectiveness. If you’re considering a variety of cosmetic solutions to improve your smile, bonding provides the solution most friendly to a variety of budgets.
