What Is Dental Bonding?
How it Works
Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment which uses a special type of dental resin to reshape and restore your teeth. This resin is similar to the material used for dental fillings. The resin is applied directly to your tooth, then shaped and trimmed to restore its shape.
Dental bonding is very versatile and can be used to treat most cosmetic issues like small gaps, minor chipping, uneven teeth and small or misshapen teeth. However, it is not meant to restore damaged teeth, as it is only a cosmetic treatment.
What to Expect
The Dental Bonding Process
After Dr. Miller approves you for bonding, the process takes only a single appointment. First, your mouth will be cleaned and your teeth will be prepped for bonding. Dr. Miller will select dental resin that matches the color of your teeth, and apply it directly. Using special dental tools, she will sculpt the resin until it’s the correct overall shape. The resin will be hardened using a UV light and it will be further trimmed and refined until it looks just like a natural tooth. Then, the tooth will be buffed and polished. It usually takes just 30-60 minutes to treat each tooth at Shine Dental.
How Does Dental Bonding Cost?
Accurate Treatment Estimate
The cost of dental bonding depends on a variety of factors including your oral health, how many teeth you are treating, and more. It’s difficult to provide you with an accurate quote unless you come in for a consultation. However, bonding is typically one of the more affordable cosmetic treatments, and it’s a great option for restoring your smile even if you’re on a budget.
Why Choose Dental Bonding?
The Benefits Of Treatment
Dental bonding is totally non-invasive. Unlike veneers, none of your natural enamel has to be removed. This also means no anesthesia or numbing is necessary during the process.
The bonding treatment process also only takes a single appointment, and you can usually have multiple teeth treated in the same appointment. It’s affordable, too. As mentioned, bonding is usually quite a bit cheaper than an alternative treatment like veneers.
