Frequently Asked Questions about Cosmetic Bonding
How long does it last?
Composite dental bonding is not as strong as your natural tooth, which is why the composite may begin to chip after several years of usage. However, with regular dental visits, Dr. Dragos will help you maintain your beautiful smile for many years.
Am I a good candidate for composite bonding?
Dental bonding is a relatively simple, non-invasive cosmetic procedure and can be completed in as little as one or two visits to our Long Island or Manhattan dental office.
Will I need anesthesia?
Anesthesia can be provided on request, but dental bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure, which typically does not require anesthesia.
How should I care for my bonding after my procedure?
Coffee, wine, tea, smoke and other substances can possibly stain the bonding. Please try to avoid these substances during the first two days following your composite procedure. Also, maintaining a proper routine of oral health habits is critical for long-term health. Brush your teeth often, floss daily, and have your teeth cleaned every six months by a dentist or dental hygienist.
