Tooth Bonding

Dental bonding is a wonderful procedure, but it does require some extra care. For the first 48 hours after your dental bonding, avoid food and products that stain your teeth like red wine, coffee, and tobacco. 

Going forward, be diligent with your oral hygiene, making sure to brush twice a day and floss at least once daily. You’ll also want to be cautious when chewing since the composite resin is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel. Getting regular dental exams and cleanings from our Parkside Dental team will also help.

Typically, the resin used for dental bonding lasts for three to 10 years. This will depend on how well you care for your oral health, avoid hard foods, and limit foods and drinks that stain your teeth. 

The cost of the procedure varies based on how many teeth need bonding, the extent of the work you need done, and your dental insurance plan. Check with your provider before scheduling your dental bonding procedure so you’ll be aware of what, if any, your insurance will cover.
