Does Tooth Bonding Have Any Disadvantages?
Yes, unfortunately, tooth bonding has some disadvantages such as staining. Just like your real teeth, dental bonding is subject to staining from dark colors liquids such as coffee, and wine. Of course, tobacco products can stain dental bonding as well. We do nothing but advise you to avoid using tobacco products, and if you are currently using, then you should consider quitting as soon as possible. Smoking is not only horrible for your overall health, but it also harms your oral health.
