How long does dental bonding last?

Dental bonding can last several years. The durability depends on where in your mouth the bonding was applied. The resin will wear out over time and may eventually need to be repaired or replaced. You can help it last by being careful about what you chew on. Avoid putting hard objects in your mouth, including your fingernails. They may crack or chip the bonding, which will mean another visit to your dentist.
