Cosmetic Dentist FAQs
Common questions Dr Karishma gets regarding cosmetic dentistry
Dental bonding can last for several years with proper care. However, the exact lifespan of the bonding material depends on several factors, including the size and location of the bonded tooth, your oral hygiene habits, and your diet. You can help prolong the lifespan of your dental bonding by avoiding hard or sticky foods, practicing good oral hygiene habits (including brushing and flossing regularly), and scheduling regular dental checkups.
Dental bonding is typically a painless procedure that requires little to no anaesthesia. However, some patients may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity during or after the procedure. This discomfort should subside within a few days, and you can take over-the-counter pain medication if necessary.

However, it's important to avoid hard, crunchy, or sticky foods for the first 24 to 48 hours after the procedure to allow the bonding material to fully harden. You should also avoid biting your nails, chewing on pens or pencils, or using your teeth to open packaging, as these habits can damage the bonding material.
