Have You Bonded With Your Dentist?
Posted May 27, 2015 by Wager-Evans Dental
Over the years your dentist becomes a good friend. They keep up with your family. They give you advice about your oral and dental health. They educate you on the dental treatments and procedures available. They take into consideration your finances and suggest treatments that may be friendlier to your pocket book. They are concerned for your well-being both as a doctor of dentistry and as a person. One treatment that is more affordable yet can perform dramatic results is dental bonding. Perhaps you and your dentist can bond over dental bonding.
Questions and Answers about Dental Bonding
Question: What is dental bonding?
Answer: Dental bonding is the process of adding tooth structure to teeth that require it for various reasons. It can be used as a cosmetic treatment or as a restorative treatment. A composite resin material is added to your tooth and cured (hardened) with a special light.
Question: What can bonding be used for?
Answer: Bonding can be used to reshape misshapen teeth; fix broken, cracked or fractured teeth; it can be used to whiten teeth; close gaps between teeth; or lengthen worn teeth or teeth that are too short.
Question: Does bonding hurt?
Answer: Bonding requires no drilling or surgery, and does not involved needles. It is a quick and painless procedure.
Question: How is bonding easy on your pocket book?
Answer: Because bonding is fast, easy, and non-invasive it takes less time and minimal preparation. Two or three teeth can be bonded in 30 to 60 minutes. That means bonding is not as expensive as longer, more complex, more invasive procedures. For instance bonding one tooth may cost from $100 to $400 depending on how many surfaces, a porcelain veneer may cost $730 to $1300 per tooth.
