60 minutes per tooth
Up to 7 years with the right care
At Almas Dental, we offer composite bonding treatment to easily treat smile imperfections such as gaps, chips and cracks in your teeth. This process is simple, affordable and often completed in just one appointment.
The treatment uses a material very similar to that used for tooth-coloured fillings to disguise small imperfections and to restore the appearance and functionality of your teeth. The tooth is prepared, usually with etching solution, and we apply and shape the material, making it look natural. It is then set, or bonded, into place using a special light to blend with your natural teeth.
Not typically but like all teeth, they should be brushed and flossed daily, and professionally cleaned at the dental office twice a year. Bonded teeth can also become stained from tobacco use, red wine and coffee — but unlike regular teeth, bonded teeth can’t be lightened. So if you’re considering tooth-whitening treatments, have them done before your teeth are bonded.
The lifespan of bonding materials for the teeth depends on how much bonding was done and your oral habits. Typically, however, bonding material lasts between 5-7 years before needing to be touched up or replaced.
