I had dental bonding put on my front 4 teeth about 15 yrs ago due to tooth discoloration after braces. I have had my teeth "redone" once already, and recently learned that tooth discoloration with bonding is common and pretty much inevitable. Question: Can the bonding be taken off and not replaced if at this point I would rather just take good care of my natural teeth?

  • Bonding on teeth should be easily removable without harm to your teeth.A special sandpaper can be used to remove the bonding material and restore your teeth to their previous state.The procedure is not at all difficult or painful.But removal is possible only if your tooth enamel was not removed before bonding. If the reason is that you are unhappy with the way they look or if the bonding is stained, you might be able to just have them refinished to improve the look. That would be fairly inexpensive. Veneers can also be done and would last longer with no staining.
