Not everyone can afford the high prices associated with some kinds of cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers and dental implants can grow to be a costly expense. For those looking for more affordable pricing, dental bonding is an alluring alternative.

The price of tooth bonding is only a fraction of what it would cost for veneers. Furthermore, the same people who are candidates for veneers are usually candidates for dental bonding. Those with cracks in their teeth, misshapen teeth or gaps between their teeth all qualify for bonding.

If there are drastic issues, dental bonding may not be an option. However, those suffering from tooth decay and tooth discoloration can breathe a sigh of relief. With the option of dental bonding, their cosmetic work will not cost a small fortune.

Time is also on your side when you go with the option of tooth bonding. There is no need to schedule several appointments to complete the process. It simply requires one visit and takes between 30 minutes to one hour per tooth. There is also no anesthesia required. It is truly a simple process and could be as simple as a regular dental check up.

Another advantage is that some insurance plans cover the cost of dental bonding. This occurs primarily when bonding is needed for structural purposes or when filling a cavity. Insurance carriers rarely cover cosmetic procedures.

Bonding may not have the same longevity as porcelain veneers, but there are affordable means of maintaining your teeth. Bonded teeth are still susceptible to stains, whereas veneers will remain the same color no matter what you eat or drink.

One alternative to maintaining the bright color of your bonded teeth would be to purchase some home teeth whitening trays. Paying for this kind of upkeep is still significantly less than what you would pay for veneers.

Also, keep in mind that your bonded teeth are not as strong as a dental implant, so refrain from biting your nails or doing anything else that might cause damage. With a little know-how and a bit of attention, you can enjoy the benefits of cosmetic dentistry without paying a hefty price tag.
