How long does dental bonding last?

The process is quick, but the results last for a long time. Composite bonding can last for up to 10 years with proper care.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

Your tooth bonding procedure may be able to be completed during a single visit depending on your cosmetic needs and oral health concerns. Dr. Desbordes will determine the best treatment plan to achieve your optimal oral health. Any recommended restorative procedures will be done prior to composite bonding.

Dr. Desbordes will first prepare your teeth for the treatment. He will remove a minimal amount of tooth enamel surface structure to make room for the composite material to be sculpted.

The material will be color matched to your natural teeth for beautiful and natural-looking results. Dr. Desbordes will skillfully sculpt the material into the desired tooth shape. The composite resin is then cured to hardness with a special light. Once thoroughly dry, the material is polished and smoothed for a natural looking luster and beautiful results.
