How Long Does Direct Bonding Last?
Cosmetic direct bonding can last more than 10 years. However, its longevity depends on how well the teeth are cared for. Bonding can crack under pressure or stress.
Also, direct bonding is vulnerable to staining. Good oral hygiene practices help prevent staining, but we recommend that patients who undergo direct bonding avoid red wine, tea, and coffee. Your dentist will evaluate your bonded teeth during regular checkups to let you know when it’s time for a refresh.
When Should You Consider Direct Bonding?
Direct bonding is one of the fastest and most affordable ways to improve your smile. Direct bonding is an excellent dentistry option if:
- You’re interested in improving the look of one or a few of your teeth
- The teeth you want to be bonded with don’t do heavy chewing or experience heavy stress from your opposing teeth.
- The teeth do not have existing large or multiple fillings
- You’re committed to outstanding oral hygiene to prevent staining
