It’s a different world these days when it comes to smiles.

With the advances in teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry, many people feel a lot of pressure to have a perfect smile. It’s true that a great smile has been shown to be an advantage both occupationally and socially – people trust and like people who smile freely – but you don’t have to break the bank or take out a second mortgage to improve your smile. Tooth bonding (or dental bonding) is the answer to minor imperfections in your smile.

About Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding uses a composite material that’s tinted to match the exact shade of your teeth. Drs. Drake can apply the material to completely and invisibly conceal minor imperfections in your smile. It’s an effective and very affordable cosmetic dentistry option that can pay dividends for your smile.

Say Goodbye To Smile Problems

The experienced dentists at Aberdeen Smile can use dental bonding to conceal and correct the following smile flaws:

  • Cracks, chips, pits, and small irregularities in teeth
  • Stains that whitening agents don’t help
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Exposed roots due to receding gums
  • Teeth that look too short

You’ll be amazed at the subtle but important changes this simple procedure can make in your smile. The composite material is durable and should last a long time with care. However, the composite material isn’t as strong as your own enamel, so take care when eating very hard foods. You shouldn’t consider bonding to be as permanent an improvement as dental veneers, so you may have to have the procedure done again.

What’s Involved

Dental bonding is a quick and painless procedure. Once the composite material is an exact match for the shade of your teeth, your teeth are prepared and the material is applied, smoothed, and hardened using a special light. Your dentist can then perform any final finishing and polishing that’s needed.

Depending on the extent of the issues you want to address, the entire process can take as little as an hour.

What Does Tooth Bonding Cost?

Tooth bonding is one of the least expensive cosmetic dentistry options. However, without knowing exactly what flaws you want to correct, it’s not possible to say exactly what the procedure will cost. If the dental bonding is to correct a structural flaw in a tooth, your insurance company may pay for part of the cost. Be sure to check with qualified staff in our office see if your dental insurance plan will cover dental bonding.
