What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a procedure where we use a tooth-colored resin to restore or improve the appearance of your teeth. The dental bonding resin is available in multiple shades so that it can match the color of your natural teeth. The composite resin is applied to the surface of the tooth and then hardened using UV light. After the dental bonding material has hardened, your dentist will shape and polish it so that it blends in with your teeth.
Bonding can be used to correct many dental problems, including chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, and misshapen teeth. The procedure is quick and painless and does not require any anesthesia.

Dental Bonding FAQs
The cost of your dental bonding treatment will vary depending on the number of teeth that are being treated and the extent of the treatment needed. On average, patients can expect to pay $300 to $600 per tooth. Some dental insurance providers will cover it if the treatment is essential, so we suggest checking to see what your plan covers.
The decision of what treatment is right for you will depend on your individual dental needs. Bonding is typically best suited for smaller treatment areas or when the damaged teeth are not too far gone. Our dental team will work with you to determine the best treatment options for you.
The shade of the resin material can be matched to your natural tooth color or to the desired shade you want for your smile. If you want a brighter, whiter smile, you may want to consider teeth whitening before bonding. This way, we can match the shade of the composite resin to your newly whitened teeth.
With the right care and maintenance, dental bonding will last anywhere from 5 to 10 years before you need any sort of repair or replacement.
