Dental bonding, a procedure that involves your dentist attaching or bonding materials directly to your discolored or chipped tooth to change its color or shape, is a great way you can restore your smile in a single dentist appointment. Our team today is going to give you four interesting facts about dental bonding that may help in your decision for smile restoration.
Dental bonding is done quickly
Unlike veneers, which can take two office visits, dental bonding is typically done within an hour by your dentist per tooth to be completed.
Bonding stains more easily
The material used in dental bonding has the tendency to become easily stained by certain foods, drinks or lifestyle habits. Coffee, tea, red wine and smoking can stain the bonding material, making that particular tooth stand out.
Better for your wallet
Depending on your insurance and where you live, bonding can cost $100 to $400 dollars per tooth. Before making a decision, consult your dentist and insurance company. Your insurance will be able to tell you how much they cover for the procedure.
Bonding materials generally wear down faster
The materials used in the composite typically aren’t as durable or long-lasting as porcelain veneers or crowns. They can easily become chipped and worn down quickly. But with proper care, dental bonding can last for three to seven years.
