Dental Bonding Cost in Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental bonding
Dental Bonding

Tooth bonding or dental bonding uses a special tooth-colored resin which is applied to the tooth then hardened using a special light. This bonds the resin to the tooth either to restore it or to improve the appearance of the tooth.

Bonding to repair broken or chipped teeth
Bonding to Repair Broken or Chipped Teeth

Tooth bonding is used in several different ways, but is probably most useful for repairing chipped teeth. Bonding materials (high-density, modern plastics called composite resin) and porcelain are more natural in color and can be designed to perfectly match the surrounding teeth making it difficult to discern there ever was a broken tooth.

For what conditions is dental bonding considered
For what conditions is dental bonding considered?

Dental bonding is an option that can be considered to:

  • Repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)

  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth

  • Improve the appearance of discolored teeth

  • Close spaces between teeth

  • Make teeth look longer

  • Change the shape of teeth

  • Use as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings

  • Protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede

What is the procedure for having a tooth bonded
What is the procedure for having a tooth bonded?

  • Preparation: Little advance preparation is needed for dental bonding. Anesthesia is often not necessary unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth.

  • The bonding process: Next, the surface of the tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid applied. These procedures help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored, putty-like resin is then applied, moulded, and smoothed to the desired shape. After the material is hardened, your dentist will further trim and shape it, and polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.

  • Time to completion: Dental bonding takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete.

What will happen at the initial consultation
What will happen at the initial consultation?

  • During the consultation, participating cosmetic dentists will talk to you about the changes you would like to make in your appearance. They will explain the different options available to you, the procedure itself, and its risks and limitations.

  • Participating cosmetic dentists will begin with a complete medical history and an examination of your teeth and gums. They may also take before photos and give you specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure.

  • Take this opportunity to ask all the questions you have about the procedure. Learning everything you can about your options, risks and benefits is the key to making an informed decision.

How long does it take
How long does it take?

Bonding can be accomplished in one visit except in complicated cases. The length of the visit will depend on the condition of your teeth and on how much repair work you are having done.

What can i expect after dental bonding
What can I expect after dental bonding?

  • You may experience some sensitivity in the treated tooth for several weeks after the procedure but this should diminish with time.

  • It is important to practice good oral hygiene in order to maintain the results achieved by this procedure. Follow these steps to care for your teeth after bonding:

  • Slice hard foods like apples and carrots before eating them.

  • Avoid chewing on hard objects like fingernails, pencils, or paperclips.

What are the advantages of dental bonding
What are the advantages of dental bonding?

  • Cost: The average cost of dental bonding ranges from $300 to $600 per tooth. “But many dental insurance plans cover most of the cost of bonding, particularly when it is done for structural reasons or to fill a cavity,” says Harms.

  • Speed: Dental bonding typically requires only one office visit. The entire process can be accomplished in 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.

  • Ease: Anesthesia is usually not necessary, unless bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth. Compared to veneers and crowns, dental bonding also requires the least amount of enamel removal, explains Harms.

Disadvantages of dental bonding
Disadvantages of dental bonding

  • Bonding material can become stained. Unlike crowns and porcelain veneers, dental bonding has a tendency to become discolored over time. “Coffee, tea, red wine, and cigarette smoke can stain the material used in dental bonding, making it stand out from the rest of your teeth,” says Harms. To minimize staining, you’ll need to avoid these substances for 24 to 48 hours after bonding is first performed.

  • Less durable. Additionally, the material used in dental bonding isn’t as strong and long-lasting as porcelain veneers and crowns. It can easily chip. With proper care though, dental bonding can last three to seven years.
