What is Dental Bonding?

The dental bonding procedure consists of a tooth-colored resin material that is placed onto your existing tooth and hardened with a special light. This procedure is great for cosmetic concerns that don’t require restoration and the process typically can be completed in one day. Dental bonding can help with issues relating to:

  • Small gaps in teeth

  • Chipped or cracked teeth

  • Discolored teeth

  • Gum recession

  • Tooth decay

  • Make teeth look longer

  • Change shape of teeth

  • Alternative to porcelain veneers

What is the Dental Bonding Process?

After it’s been determined that dental bonding can help you, a mild etching solution is applied to your tooth to create a slightly rough surface, which helps the tooth accept the composite resin. Once the resin is placed, a high-intensity laser is used to cure the resin onto the surface of the tooth. After each layer is applied, the bonded material is sculpted and finely polished to closely match the appearance of your natural tooth. The benefits of dental bonding for dental rejuvenation include:

  • Tooth-colored resin matches color of your teeth

  • Quick and convenient as the process only takes about 30 minutes per tooth

  • Long-lasting, up to seven years

  • Affordable compared to other cosmetic procedures

  • Requires only minimal tooth structure to be removed

  • Virtually painless

  • Requires no anesthesia

Caring for Your Dental Bonds

Once you’ve received your dental bonds the work is not completely over. It’s important to take care of your bonded tooth, just like your normal teeth, so that they will last and continue to provide a bright, beautiful smile for years to come. While minor repairs may be common, the following general hygiene methods can help your dental bonds last for years:

  • Brush and floss your teeth daily

  • Avoid sweets and starchy foods between meals

  • Have your teeth professionally cleaned up to four times a year

  • Do not use harsh toothbrushes or toothpastes as they can dull the bonding and make it susceptible to stain

  • Do not use pumice pastes, ultrasonic cleaning devices, or air-polishing instruments as they can damage the surface of the bonds

  • Notify your dentist if you notice any rough patches, which can be smoothed if caught early

  • Smoking and drinking alcohol can make the bonding to deteriorate prematurely

Additional Dental Bonding Information

In addition to the many advantages listed above, dental bonds are not permanent, which is beneficial if you decide you prefer porcelain veneers in the future. Veneers are a permanent solution to cosmetic dental issues and can be placed after having dental bonds. And for those who may not be able to afford all new porcelain veneers, we can also place dental bonding and veneers together, as our bonding material, Empress Direct, matches alongside veneers very well.

While the bonding procedure is quite inexpensive compared to many other restorations—generally around $350 to $550 per tooth—insurance may cover some, if not all, of the procedure, depending on the cause. If your tooth has been damaged by an accident, decay, or if there are defective areas of enamel, insurance may pay benefits to have those repaired. At Five Star Dental we’ll work with you to get the maximum coverage possible for your cosmetic dental restorations. And if you happen to have an accident that caused a bonded tooth to chip, keep the broken piece moist if possible and Dr. Vorperian can restore it to the tooth as if it never broke.
