How long do tooth-coloured fillings last?

Dental bonding effects are not permanent, similar to other dental procedures, the longevity and durability of tooth bonding vary. The lifespan of bonding materials depends on how much bonding was done, tooth location, and your oral habits (bite, eating, chewing) and oral hygiene. Typically, however, bonding material lasts from 3 years up to about 10 years before needing to be touched up or replaced.

For best results, dental-bonding recipients should take care of their teeth including brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. Visit Smile Centre India for regular cleanings and checkups every year or as recommended to ensure that your dental bond is intact and working well. If you practice poor oral hygiene, the dental bonding effects wonít last even a year.

In addition to maintaining optimal oral hygiene habits, patients who have undergone dental bonding should avoid Chewing ice, eating hard candy, biting fingernails, using teeth to open packages, chewing on non-food items etc and also anything that might stain your natural teeth can also affect the colour of the bonding material. Itís best to limit the intake of coffee, tea, wine, and tobacco.
