Frequently asked questions about cosmetic bonding

What is cosmetic dental bonding?

Dr. Beth Skovron of Heritage Dental in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, describes dental cosmetic bonding as a cosmetic dentistry procedure in which composite resin material is applied to the surface of the teeth, sculpted into shape, and hardened with a special light. The result is a natural-looking dental restoration used to improve the general appearance of teeth that are damaged or discolored.

How long does dental bonding last?

The lifespan of bonded teeth will vary depending on how well you care for your mouth and follow proper oral hygiene practices. Typically, dental bonding can last anywhere from three to 10 years before it needs to be replaced or repaired.

Are there any risks or problems associated with dental bonding?

Yes, there are some risks associated with dental bonding procedures. These include sensitivity to heat and cold, staining or discoloration, and chipping. Be sure to follow Dr. Skovron’s instructions for caring for bonded teeth to reduce the risk of complications.

Can dental bonding be used for cavities?

Yes, dental bonding is used to fill cavities in teeth. To do so, Dr. Skovron must first drill out the decay in the tooth and then fill it with a special composite resin material that matches the color of your natural teeth. The material is then hardened with a special light, filling the cavity and restoring its original shape. This prevents the cavity from getting larger or deeper and seals the tooth to prevent bacteria from entering.

Is dental bonding painful?

No, dental bonding is not painful. Dr. Skovron will provide a local anesthetic before treatment to minimize any discomfort. The entire procedure is done without pain, and patients can alleviate any pain they may have been dealing with due to the formation of the cavity.
