If you have a chipped or discolored tooth, dental bonding can be a quick and affordable fix. At Connell Family Dentistry, we offer dental bonding and other dental services to residents of New Orleans, Gretna, Harvey, and the nearby areas of Louisiana.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a versatile cosmetic dentistry technique that uses a composite resin to restore tooth damage or discoloration. The composite material is made to match the exact color of your teeth, so bonding will look completely natural in your smile. Dental bonding can be used to address any of the following issues:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Gap between teeth
- Decayed teeth
How Much Does Dental Bonding Cost?
The average cost of dental bonding is (COST), but this cost can vary depending on the number of teeth that require bonding. Dental bonding is a cosmetic service, so it will not be covered by insurance. However, Connell Family Dentistry accepts financing through Lending Club and CareCredit® to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
How is Dental Bonding Performed?
The dental bonding treatment is relatively quick and painless. First, the soft bonding material is placed onto the desired tooth. Then, it will be shaped and adjusted to address the cosmetic concern and fulfill your cosmetic goals. After the desired look is achieved, the composite material will be hardened using ultraviolet light.
How Long Will My Bonding Last?
Dental bonding is designed to last upwards of 10 years; however, improper care can jeopardize the longevity of your bonding. It is essential to clean and floss around your bonding like you would with any normal tooth. You may also want to avoid ice, hard candies, and similar foods that can crack or damage the composite material.
