Dental Bonding

Dentist and assistant performing a dental bonding procedure on a female patient.Our teeth are designed to be strong, tough, and durable. No matter how unbreakable our teeth may seem, accidents can happen. Teeth can crack, chip, and even become discolored over time.

We at, All Star Dental & Implant Center are extremely skilled in bonding and will get our clients in and out as fast as possible.

What is Bonding?

Bonding is a procedure where your dentist will apply a white, tooth-colored resin to your teeth that have been damaged and need to be repaired. It is a very budget-friendly alternative to crowns or veneers. Here is everything you need to know about the bonding process, including any risks and costs associated with the procedure.

How Does Bonding Work?

Tooth bonding is a very simple procedure that doesn’t usually require the use of anesthesia or multiple visits to the dentist’s office. Your dentist will use a shade guide to choose the resin color that matches your teeth as close as possible.

The dentist will apply a liquid to your teeth that will allow the bonding agent to stick. Then, the dentist will apply the resin over the liquid, shape the resin to your tooth, and harden the material with a UV light. If needed, your dentist can continue to shape the tooth after the resin has hardened.

Why is Bonding a Good Option?

Bonding is a great solution for fixing a tooth defect or imperfection. The most common issues people choose to fix with bonding are decay, cracks, small gaps between teeth, or discoloration. Tooth bonding can also help increase the size of a tooth, like if you have a tooth that isn’t as long as all of the rest and you want to make it longer.

Tooth bonding is a very quick procedure. You don’t need any anesthesia or healing time; you can continue your day as normal after the procedure is complete. The procedure only takes about 30 to 60 minutes from start to finish, but it is possible it could take longer if you have multiple teeth that are being worked on.

Are There Any Risks?

Bonding does not usually have any major risks, but it is important to keep in mind that the resin won’t be as strong as your natural teeth are. The material can chip if you chew ice, pens or pencils, fingernails, or bite down too hard on a piece of candy. The resin is also not resistant to stains, so it may become discolored over time if you smoke or drink a lot of coffee.

How Much Does It Cost?

The cost of bonding varies based on how experienced the doctor is and how extensive your procedure will be. You can most likely expect to pay between $300 to $600 per tooth. You should always check with your insurance before scheduling a procedure because some companies consider bonding cosmetic and won’t cover the procedure.

Prepare and Care

You do not need to prepare for bonding in any special preparation. Before considering this procedure, you should talk with your dentist to make sure you are a good candidate for bonding.

You will need to keep in mind that bonding will need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years. Take care of the bonding properly by brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing. If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, contact All Star Dental & Implant Center at (808) 808-1606 today.
