the bonding in my front tooth is often chipped off is there any other option

Q. I have recently had my two front teeth bonded to close a medium size gap in my front teeth. However, after only a couple of months the bonding has flaked/chipped off one of the tooth. I have had to go back to the dentist each time and he does repair the bonding at no cost. Just wondering what are my other options or am I stuck doing this procedure every few months. Also, I have no real bad habits of biting my nails or eating hard foods.

A. This is a problem that alot of people experience with composite restorations on their front teeth. Because they are so small and there may not be much to bond to, then they will just keep coming off!The are more permanent solutions such as veneers- but as long as you are happy to attend your dentist every few months to have them re-done, then that’s fine too!
Veneers will achieve a good, natural result if carried out be a good cosmetic dentist.
Hope this has helped
