Bonding: A Better Smile That Won’t Break Your Bank

Cosmetic Dentistry that Won't Break the Bank BondingAre you insecure because of imperfections in your teeth, but delaying cosmetic treatment because you’re worried it will break the bank? You don’t have to spend a million bucks to look like it or feel like it. Dental bonding is a great way to enhance your smile both quickly and affordably. It’s time to stop daydreaming about a brighter, straighter smile. And instead, you should learn how bonding could give you the smile of your dreams, without the price tag that pops up in your nightmares.

What Bonding Can Do for You

Dental bonding can accomplish many of the same benefits of porcelain veneers, but at a fraction of the cost. Cosmetic issues that bonding can address include:

  • Discoloration or permanent staining
  • Jagged or worn edges
  • Overly pointy or disproportionally small teeth
  • Minor gaps between the teeth

Bonding can be completed in the dentist’s office, usually in less than an hour during a single office visit. It uses the same composite resin material that many dentists prefer for dental fillings. This material bonds well with the teeth, can be shaded to match your natural teeth, and hardens to form a durable treatment.

And because bonding relies on the dentist’s own artistry to help sculpt the resin in order to make your teeth appear straighter and more uniform, the cost is far less than porcelain veneers, which must (in most cases) be custom crafted by a ceramicist.

The procedure itself is minimally invasive, usually requiring no anesthesia, and does not necessitate much preparation of your natural teeth. This means the dentist won’t need to extensively damage your healthy enamel, in order to place the resin.
