Composite Bonding in Dubai Silicon Oasis

Table of contents

Composite bonding involves the repair of decayed, damaged (chipped, broken, cracked, worn-down), or discolored teeth using material (composite resin) that resembles the natural tooth color. It is one of the least expensive, and least invasive of all cosmetic dental procedures and can be completed in just one sitting and with minimal tooth removal. The dentist first drills out the tooth decay, if any. Next, the composite is applied onto the tooth’s surface and sculpted into the right shape before being cured with a high-intensity light. This effectively covers the damage to the tooth and gives the appearance of a healthy tooth in its place.

Avoid tea, coffee, smoking and food which may stain for 48 hours after having the procedure done. Brush your teeth often and see the hygienist regularly to maintain good oral health. Avoid biting nails or chewing items such as pen lids, which may chip the material.

How long do composite bonding last?

Composite bonding lasts for 5 years on average. The material is not as hard as your natural teeth. It can wear down, chip off, break, or get stained. All these issues affect its lifespan.

Why does my composite bonding keep coming off?

Because dental bonding adheres to the surface of a person's tooth, there are times when the adhesion material wasn't thoroughly put on. The dentist may have missed a small spot that eventually became loose over time, thus causing the bonding to dis-adhere and fall off.

Does composite bonding break easily?

Unlike porcelain veneers, composite bonding does not break or it is very rare for it come off in the same way as with porcelain veneers. Composite bonding can chip for a variety of reasons with biting and chewing on hard food being the most common reasons or grinding and clenching teeth.

Can I use an electric toothbrush on bonding?

If you have dental bonding applied, you don't need to do very much to protect it, yet there are things that you should and shouldn't do. Use an electric toothbrush – they are gentler to your teeth and gums and allow for better cleaning of the plaque with milder pressure.

What foods should I avoid with bonded teeth?

To prevent fracture, avoid directly biting with front bonded teeth into the following foods: ribs, bones (fried chicken,lamb chops, etc.), hard candy, apples, carrots, nuts, hard rolls or bagels.

How many times can a tooth be bonded?

Bonding on the front teeth can last between 4 and 8 years, depending on the location of the bonded tooth, your bite, and your eating habits. It's usually better to avoid biting directly into your food, particularly hard consumables that can compromise the structure of the dental bonding.
