If you suffer from tooth damage or severe discoloration, Corbin Dental in Bayside, NY offers several solutions to help correct it. Teeth bonding is an economical way to fix minor tooth issues and blend in naturally with the surrounding teeth. Dental insurance may sometimes cover this popular dental treatment.
It is a fairly simple procedure that does not require any downtime. We can complete it in one visit to our dentist office.
What is Teeth Bonding?
A teeth bonding treatment, or dental bonding, is quick, highly efficient, and minimally invasive. It does not require extensive tooth preparation and is complete in a single office visit. We apply mild phosphoric acid to gently etch the surface of the tooth. This will allow the bonding material to adhere to the tooth better.
The bonding material is a tooth-colored, composite resin that is applied directly to the tooth. Since it is highly malleable, your dentist will sculpt it into the desired shape by hand. The bonding material is then cured in place with a special light and the tooth is polished.
If your teeth have more significant issues, your dentist may recommend a permanent treatment. We offer porcelain veneers and dental crowns to reinforce teeth, restore function and improve appearance. The dentists at our Bayside, NY dentist office use teeth bonding to:
- Close teeth gaps
- Fix chipped or broken teeth
- Fill small cavities
- Fix misshapen teeth
- Make teeth appear longer
- Improve the appearance of stained teeth
Pros of Teeth Bonding
Cons of Teeth Bonding
How much does teeth bonding cost?
Oftentimes teeth bonding will be covered by dental insurance. If your dentist recommends this treatment for restorative purposes, it is to preserve the tooth or restore function. We will file your claim electronically to help you maximize your benefits.
Teeth bonding can be used as a cosmetic dentistry treatment as well. In these circumstances, you will have to pay out of pocket for treatment since it is for aesthetic purposes only. It will be considered an elective procedure, but it is the most affordable treatment compared to your other options. Other options include porcelain veneers and dental crowns.
The average cost for one tooth is about $300-$600 and should last between five and ten years, depending on your oral hygiene habits.
We offer many payment options including cash, personal check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and HSA/FSA dollars. For patients that qualify, we offer financing through Care Credit and Wells Fargo.
