What is a bond and how do I treat it?

 

Q: What is a bond and how do I treat it? 

A: A bond, when a dentist "bonds" a tooth colored resin onto the tooth to repair a fractured, worn, or chipped tooth, usually last about three to five years before it needs to be repaired. 

Bonds are also used to cover up a discoloration of a tooth or close a small gap between the teeth. The plastic resin material is not as strong as natural teeth and can be chipped or broken, if not careful. Proper home care and professional cleaning will keep your restored teeth healthy.
