Dental Bonding Can Dramatically Improve Your Smile—Without Compromising Healthy Enamel

Before starting cosmetic dentistry procedures, it’s natural to wonder how it will affect the health and structure of your smile. One of the benefits of dental bonding is that it’s a conservative treatment, meaning that we preserve much of the dental structure when attaching the composite resin bonding material.


After ensuring that the teeth are gum disease and cavity-free, our cosmetic dentists use a shade guide to match the composite resin to natural enamel. Then, they prepare the teeth by shaping them (if needed), lightly roughening the enamel, and applying a conditioning liquid.

After the preparation stage, our dentists carefully apply resin putty to the enamel and cure it with light. After multiple rounds of applying resin and curing, they shape and polish the dental bonding material to create the desired shape.

Typically, the entire dental bonding procedure lasts between 30 and 60 minutes per tooth.

Additionally, feel free to read through our frequently asked questions about dental bonding (and make sure to write and down and bring your other questions to your next dental appointment at our Montclair, NJ, dental office):  

1. Does dental bonding hurt?

Because only a minuscule amount of enamel is etched away before applying the composite

resin material, tooth bonding should not cause discomfort. In fact, dentists typically do not have to provide anesthesia for this cosmetic dentistry procedure.

If the affected area previously had deep decay or was in pain, you might feel momentary discomfort, which should fade away once the dental bonding treatment is over. 

2. How long does dental bonding last?

Dental bonding generally lasts anywhere from 2 to 3 years before needing repair. Thankfully, dental bonding is easily replaced and altered.

It’s important to note that the location of the tooth that has dental bonding or dental habits can impact the lifespan of the bonding material. 

3. How do I care for dental bonding?

For the most part, teeth that have undergone tooth bonding can be cared for like natural teeth. Brushing twice daily, flossing once daily, and scheduling regular dental exams and cleanings can keep dental bonding in pristine condition.

Aside from excellent oral hygiene, we suggest avoiding chewing on hard objects (like pens, fingernails, and ice) as well as avoiding staining food and drinks (such as wine, coffee, and tea) when possible to maintain the structure and brilliance of dental bonding.
