Is Dental Bonding Right for Me?

While other cosmetic dentistry treatments can address issues like cracks, chips, and discoloration, such as veneers and teeth whitening, they can be more expensive or not completely address the problem. Dental bonding is an affordable treatment that can give your smile a healthier, whiter, more symmetrical appearance. Those who do not qualify for veneers because of insufficient enamel may qualify for dental bonding to restore the appearance of their teeth.

Dental Bonding Treatment

Dental bonding can be done in one appointment that lasts an hour or less.

Initial Exam

While dental bonding is a fantastic option for many patients, it may not be the best treatment for patients with significant damage. During your initial consultation, Dr. Pendergrass or Dr. Wilkie will determine if dental bonding can help you achieve your goals.

Shade Matching

During your appointment, your dentist will shade match the bonding to your teeth to make it look as natural as possible.

Preparation

Your tooth or teeth will be prepared for bonding. This sometimes requires gentle etching so the material can bond properly to the tooth. Your dentist will then mold the composite resin material to the tooth before it is permanently bonded.

Curing

The composite resin will be cured with a UV light, bonding the resin to your tooth.  

Enjoy the Results

Finally, your dentist will polish your tooth or teeth and the resin for a beautiful finish. You can now share your beautiful new smile with the world.

Caring for Your New Smile

/

Caring for your new smile is easy. Simply brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush, floss daily, and attend your regular dental checkups. To maintain the bonding material for as long as possible, try to minimize your intake of very sticky, hard, or staining foods and beverages and chew with teeth that are not bonded.

How Long Does Dental Bonding Last?

The composite resin material used in dental bonding is durable and can last three to 10 years. With proper care and routine dental visits, your new smile may last even longer. It's important to remember that your bonding may require occasional touch-ups as the composite material can wear down, chip, or become stained from things like darkly colored foods, sauces, berries, wine, and tobacco.

​How Much Does Bonding Cost? Affordable Financing Available

The cost of your dental bonding treatment will depend on your unique needs, but a single tooth can cost anywhere from $150-$600. While we accept most insurance providers, cosmetic treatments aren't covered unless there is a medical reason for them. To make treatment more affordable, we accept CareCredit® financing and offer a 5% cash discount.

Combine Dental Bonding With Other Dental Treatments To Completely Transform Your Smile

Does your smile suffer from multiple cosmetic or restorative issues? Dental bonding can be used in conjunction with other dentistry treatments such as teeth whitening and crowns to transform the health and appearance of your smile. Drs. Tyler Pendergrass and Eric Wilkie offer a range of dental procedures and they can walk you through your options during a consultation.

Can I Receive Veneers?

/

Though they're more expensive, porcelain veneers are an alternative option for patients who want to conceal cosmetic issues. Dental bonding can be a great way to help you determine if you want veneers. Because the tooth is not significantly altered during the bonding process, you can still be a candidate for veneers if you choose to invest in them at a later time.
