How strong is a bonded front tooth?

The dental bonding material is made from a composite resin that can chemically bond with the teeth, which not only makes it strong it also makes it very stable. This material is highly durable and able to withstand the normal wear and tear on the teeth from daily biting and chewing.

The composite resin that is used for bonding can still chip or crack with major trauma or pressure, but it is sturdy and remains in place for quite some time. You should take care when eating or biting down. Something as simple as chewing on a pen or a paperclip could damage your dental bonding. Avoid hard foods or candy, acidic foods can also weaken your bonding over time.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is another important component of preserving your dental bonding. Because bonding is applied to an existing tooth, it is important to care for the tooth and ensure its health. Brushing regularly and flossing daily will help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Visit your dentist regularly. Your dentist can help keep your teeth strong and healthy with regular cleanings.
