At Bedford Dental Group we offer dental bonding for patients who’d like to make improvements to their smile without committing to cumbersome treatments like orthodontics.
Dental bonding is a process that enables your dentist to correct cosmetic problems with dental resin. Dental bonding can be used to improve teeth that are stained, chipped, cracked, misshapen or separated by unattractive minor gaps.
They are made from a special resin that can be shaded to match or enhance your natural tooth color. Once applied, your dental bond is shaped to give it a natural appearance. Unlike veneers and dental crowns, dental bonding is a quick procedure that requires little destruction to the natural tooth structure.
Dental bonding offers patients a fast, minimally invasive, affordable and effective cosmetic dentistry solution.
Dental bonding is fast and minimally-invasive.
Dental bonding is placed directly over your existing dental enamel. Your dentist will prepare the surface of the tooth by etching the enamel with roughing gel and then coating the tooth with a conditioning treatment to ensure the bonding material sticks to the tooth. Together, you and your dentist will select a shade of resin that best matches your smile. Then, the composite resin is applied to the tooth and molded into shape. Once the molding is dry and hardened using a special ultraviolet light, your dentist will polish and buff the bond to give it a natural shine.
Dental bonding is affordable.
Bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures. Your dental bond usually can be done in one office visit. Other cosmetic dental treatments like crowns and veneers can require several appointments to complete. Dental bonding is also a great option for masking the appearance of unsightly gaps, thus avoiding the time and expense of orthodontics. And, unless dental bonding is being used to fill a cavity, anesthesia is usually not required. The average cost of dental bonding ranges from $300 to $600 per tooth.
Dental bonding is an effective cosmetic dentistry solution.
Dental bonding is an excellent choice for perfecting the appearance of stained or damaged teeth. Bonding can be used to repair a wide variety of cosmetic dental concerns:
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Improve appearance of stained or discolored teeth
- Fill in large gaps between teeth
- Change the shape of teeth for a uniform appearance
- As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
For many cosmetic dentistry patients, dental bonding offers a great solution to minor flaws and blemishes at a lower cost than other more invasive treatment options. Contact Bedford Dental Group — your friendly Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist — to see if dental bonding is right for you today.
