Tooth bonding. Kind of sounds like you’re spending some quality one-on-one time getting to know your tooth. You can certainly do that if it floats your boat, but that’s not what we’re talking about here.
Dental bonding (also known as tooth bonding) is about the easiest procedure you can find to improve the appearance of your smile. For dental bonding, your dentist will apply a tooth-colored resin to specific areas of your tooth (or teeth). Then she’ll use a special light to harden the resin.
Bonding is a great solution for repairing chipped or cracked teeth, closing gaps between teeth, changing the shape of teeth and for other purposes. It’s often used as a somewhat temporary fix for some dental issues until a more permanent solution is put in place.
When done the right way, bonding can leave your teeth looking completely normal. It will be hard for anyone to tell you had a broken tooth or cavity.
How Much Does Tooth Bonding Cost: $250 +/- per tooth
Dental bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures. On average the cost ranges from $100 to $400 per tooth. Also, anesthesia typically is not required (unless the bonding is used to fill a cavity) which helps keep tooth bonding costs to a minimum.
And here’s even more good news on the cost front for dental bonding. Often the cost of bonding will be covered by dental insurance plans, especially if it’s done to fill a cavity or for structural reasons. So if you have dental insurance, make sure you check with them to see they’ll cover your tooth bonding procedure.
How much dental bonding costs you will largely depend on how extensive an area needs to be treated, where in the country you live and the experience level of your dentist.
