What is composite bonding used for?

Composite bonding can be used for a variety of reasons, including:

How do you care for your teeth after a dental bonding treatment?

You should continue practicing good oral hygiene at home and visiting our office at least twice per year for dental exams and cleanings. You should also try to avoid chewing things like ice, hard candy, and popcorn kernels with your natural teeth, as well as any teeth that have a composite bonding. If you have a habit of biting your nails, that would also be a good habit to break to keep your dental bonding in good shape. Composite bondings, when treated well, can last anywhere between 5 and 10 years.

What is the difference between composite bonding and veneers?

Veneers are used to completely cover a tooth, while a composite bonding is only used in certain areas where it’s necessary. If you have a very minor chip or crack, a composite bonding works well to repair it without having to cover up the entire tooth. Dental bonding is also less costly than veneers. However, porcelain veneers are more durable and tend to last longer than composite bonding treatments.

If you are unsure which treatment is right for you, our team at Seastone Dental would be happy to help you determine which option will work better for your smile during your next visit.
