Dental Bonding – An Affordable and Efficient Improvement Method for Teeth

If you need dental bonding to improve the appearance of your teeth, we can help. If you are unsure of whether or not a dental bonding would improve your smile, we can assist you in determining exactly what cosmetic improvements you need. Learn more about how dental bonding is an affordable and efficient improvement method for mild imperfections in teeth.

Dental Bonding Uses:

  • Fill in chipped teeth or gaps between teeth
  • Repair decayed teeth (composite resin, tooth-colored fillings)
  • Cover cracks or scratches on teeth
  • Whiten discolored spots on teeth
  • Elongate small teeth
  • Contour oddly shaped teeth
  • Cover exposed teeth roots
  • Replace silver amalgam fillings
  • Temporary improvements before more extensive cosmetic improvements

Dental Bonding Cost:

Dental bonding as a cosmetic dental improvement is an incredibly affordable option. Many people try dental bonding before any other improvement since it costs much less than other options like dental veneers or crowns.

Dental bonding is slightly stain-resistant, but it will not resist stains as long as other options like porcelain crowns. It is also not as durable as some improvement options that are available. Many patients still choose dental bonding due to how cost-effective it is. Even if it wears down or has a stain, it is a quick and affordable process to repair or replace. Many people receive dental bonding and never have a problem with the tooth that was improved again.

Dental Bonding Process:

Dental bonding is a desirable cosmetic dental improvement because it is an efficient procedure that produces immediate results. When you need to have dental bonding applied to teeth, you will typically need very little teeth preparation beforehand. The patient will also not normally need anesthetics unless the tooth has decay or is sensitive due to exposed roots.

We will determine the correct shade so the dental bonding will match the other teeth perfectly. Normally, our dental bonding application only takes a 30-minute appointment and the patient will leave with noticeably improved results.

We will prepare the surface that the bonding will adhere to by etching or roughen it so the bonding will stick in place more securely. Dental bonding will begin as a malleable, tooth-colored putty-type material that we will “paint” onto the area of improvement. Once we put it in place and contour it to the desired shape, we will use a curing light to harden it to a more durable, tooth-like finish. At this stage, the patient will be able to leave and use the teeth like normal within 30 minutes to an hour following the appointment.

Do Not Miss Out on This Treatment

Dental bonding is a great option to consider if you have small flaws you would like improved or inconsequential repairs you need us to accomplish. Our patients are always pleased with their dental bonding results and how fast and effective the bonding treatment appointment is.
