How Does Cosmetic Bonding Work?
Cosmetic bonding is a process wherein your dentist molds a tooth-colored
composite resin onto your teeth. The resin is the same material used for
tooth-colored fillings. It will be carefully shade-matched to blend in with
the surrounding teeth, and it will get shaped in a way that allows it to hide
numerous flaws, including:
- Cracks and chips
- Small gaps between the teeth
Once the resin is applied, a special curing light hardens it in a matter of
seconds. After Dr. Parker makes any necessary adjustments to the bonding, you
can go off and enjoy your gorgeous new look.
Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding
Cosmetic bonding offers numerous benefits, including:
It can be completed in a single appointment. Porcelain
veneers produce initial results that are similar to cosmetic bonding.
However, installing veneers takes at least two appointments, whereas dental
bonding typically requires only one appointment.
It is noninvasive. Applying the bonding material does not
require that the teeth be significantly modified in any way.
It is affordable. Dental bonding is among the most
affordable cosmetic dental procedures. It costs significantly less than
It is natural-looking. After your procedure, people will
notice that your smile looks amazing — but they won’t have any
reason to suspect that you have had some work done on your teeth.
Cost of Cosmetic Bonding
We already mentioned that cosmetic bonding is relatively affordable, but we
cannot say much beyond that. The cost of your procedure will depend largely on
how many teeth you are going to have treated. For example, correcting the
appearance of one tooth will logically cost less than changing the look of
two, three, or more teeth. During your consultation, we will be sure to give
you a candid estimate for the cost of your procedure. We will also discuss
your payment options with you.
Is Cosmetic Bonding Right for Me?
We generally recommend cosmetic bonding for individuals who have just one or
two teeth whose appearance they would like to improve, as well as for folks
who are concerned about the cost of cosmetic dentistry. On the other hand, if
you would like a total smile makeover, and you want your results to last for
10 years or longer, porcelain veneers may be the better option. When you visit
us for your consultation, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of all your
treatment choices so you can settle on the one that is the best fit for your
preferences and circumstances.
