Pros and Cons of Dental Bonding

Advantages Of Dental Bonding

Cost. The cost of tooth bonding is typically $300 to $600 per tooth.

Many dental insurance plans cover most of the cost of bonding, particularly when it is done for structural reasons or to fill a cavity.

Speed. Usually you only need to visit the dentist’s clinic once as it only takes approximately 45 mins per tooth.

Ease. Anesthesia is not normally required unless a decayed tooth is involved. Dental bonding also removes less enamel than when compared to having crowns or veneers.

Disadvantages Of Dental Bonding

The material used for the dental tooth bonding can become stained by coffee, red wine, etc., so especially avoid these things in the first few days. Smokers should choose another cosmetic treatment altogether as the bonding will turn yellow from the smoke.

The dental bonding material is not as strong as porcelain crowns/veneers and it can chip, although it could last for five or more years if you are careful.
