What is Dental Bonding?

Overtime, daily habits can take a toll on the health of our teeth, causing them to become damaged or weakened. This can lead to a variety of cosmetic and functional issues including chips, cracks, and discoloration or staining. For patients who wish to correct these issues, but do not want to undergo more invasive treatments, such as the placement of porcelain veneers, dental bonding is a welcomed solution. Plano, TX cosmetic dentist, Dr. Tim Nguyen, offers this simple procedure, which involves applying a tooth-colored resin to the natural teeth in order to conceal imperfections. Dental bonding can also be used to lengthen the teeth or fill in gaps to give a unified, attractive look.

Am I A Good Candidate for Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding and contouring may treat cracks, chips, gaps, tooth length, discoloration, and other flaws. Dental bonding and contouring is a more affordable cosmetic procedure and can often be completed in a single appointment. It also doesn’t require preparations like veneers or crowns; however, it is not as strong and usually doesn’t last as long. Dental bonding and contouring is good for small issues, but if you want more extensive improvements, a different cosmetic or restorative procedure may be considered. During your consult, Team will listen to your needs and concerns and then discuss your treatment options.

What Should I Expect From Dental Bonding Treatment?

Dental bonding is a noninvasive, pain-free treatment. It begins with the dentist preparing the tooth for bonding by roughening the surface and applying a conditioning liquid. This helps ensure the resin will securely bond to the teeth. After applying the tooth-colored resin to the affected areas, the dentist will shape the material in order to achieve natural-looking results. A special light hardens the resin, and the tooth is polished for a natural, attractive finish. This procedure can be completed in one office visit, but the length of the visit will vary based on the specific needs of the patient. With proper oral hygiene, the effects of dental bonding can last up to 7-10 years.

How Much Does Dental Bonding Cost?

The estimated cost for dental bonding will vary, depending on the patient’s dental conditions and the number of teeth that need repair. Patients can expect to pay between $550-$850 per tooth.

Dental Bonding FAQ

Are there any Special Benefits to Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a beneficial procedure because it is a simple, effective way to treat a variety of cosmetic flaws. It is less expensive and less time-consuming than other cosmetic treatments. Dental bonding also keeps more enamel intact than other procedures, keeping the natural teeth strong and healthy. In addition, while dental bonding is not a solution for all-over teeth whitening, it can be effective at concealing localized stains for patients who are sensitive to other whitening treatments.

Do I need to Be Aware of any Special Care items?

Dental bonding does not need special care. Like regular teeth, bonded teeth need a good oral hygiene routine with regular professional check-ups and cleanings. However, dental bonding material can chip, so patients should avoid biting and chewing hard objects.

Does Dental bonding provide Lasting Results?

The material used for dental bonding does not last forever, but it will last a long time. With proper dental hygiene and routine maintenance, bonding materials can last between 3 and 10 years (or longer) before needing to be touched-up or replaced. This varies by patient.

Is Dental bonding Covered by Insurance?

If damaged or weakened teeth cause functional damage, the cost of dental bonding may be covered by dental insurance. Patients are encouraged to contact their insurance provider to check if they are eligible for coverage prior to the procedure.
