Tooth Bonding

Commonly Asked Questions

How is tooth bonding done?


The bonding procedure is a simple procedure that takes about 30-60 minutes per tooth to complete. Dr. Mishaan uses a shade guide to select a composite resin that closely matches the natural color of your teeth. A conditioning material is then applied to help the resin adhere to the tooth. Teeth bonding materials are applied directly to the tooth, unlike veneers which are made of porcelain and must be formed in a separate dental laboratory.  Resin and inorganic particles are mixed into a paste which is placed on the tooth.  This paste is then formed, sculpted, and colored to match your smile before being cured to its final hardness and “bonded” to the tooth.  This is a painless procedure and requires no anesthetic. 

How long do the bonds last?


Once the bonds are in place, their durability and longevity depends greatly on the post-operative care of the patient.  Proper oral hygiene will help to the successful outcome of the procedure.  That means brushing at least twice a day, visiting your dentist regularly and maintaining a nutritious, well-balanced diet. However, because bonded teeth are vulnerable to chipping, you should refrain from habits such as chewing on pens, ice and your fingernails. If you find a lack of luster in your teeth, Dr. Mishaan can also perform aesthetic touchups to your bonds.  If you take proper care of your teeth and smile, you will never know the difference!
