Get A Beautiful Smile On A Budget With Dental Bonding

September 25, 2021

Let’s face it, few people are born with naturally perfect smiles. If you’re among those who didn’t hit the genetic jackpot, you know cosmetic dentistry can help, but you might believe it isn’t in your budget. Elective treatments aren’t just for the elite anymore. People from all walks of life can achieve a flawless smile thanks to new advancements in dentistry. As a result, there’s a solution for you to get the picture-perfect smile you deserve without draining your wallet. If you’re on a budget, you might be a candidate for dental bonding. Here’s what you need to know about the cost of dental bonding.

What is Dental Bonding?

Cosmetic dental bonding is popular because it provides drastic results using a minimally invasive procedure. A composite resin material can be used to fix a variety of aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Tooth decay
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • Chips or cracks
  • Stains and discoloration
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Abnormally shaped teeth

The resin is carefully shaded to match the color of your enamel, so it will blend in with your tooth. In fact, no one will notice it’s there. With the right aftercare, it can last for a decade or longer for long-term results.

How Much Does Dental Bonding Cost?

Dental bonding is appealing because it’s more affordable than other procedures, like veneers. On average, it costs about $100 to $400 per tooth, however, several factors influence the amount you’ll pay, including:

  • Number of Teeth Being Treated: Dental bonding can enhance a single tooth or multiple teeth. You can expect to pay more for each tooth you’re fixing.
  • Size of Treatment Area: The fee to treat a larger area will be higher than a smaller section. For example, treating a minor cavity will cost less than covering the entire tooth surface.
  • Dentist’s Qualifications: Although you’ll pay more for a dentist who specializes in cosmetic dentistry, it’s worth every penny to ensure you get the exact results you want.

How Can I Pay for Dental Bonding?

You have several solutions to keep your dream smile affordable, like using your dental insurance. Although your policy won’t cover the cost of the treatment is only needed for elective reasons, you can use your benefits to offset the fees if it’s necessary for your oral health. While every policy is unique, you may be able to use your coverage if dental bonding is needed for restorative purposes, like tooth decay or a chip.

Many dental offices also accept third-party financing to cover any out-of-pocket expenses. Don’t worry, your dentist will provide you with a personalized estimate and discuss your payment options during your consultation. Rest assured, you’ll invest in an attractive smile without breaking the bank.
