The Dental Bliss team provides the best possible dental bonding in Hermitage, TN. We recognize the role that the appearance of teeth plays in patient smiles. Cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening can help restore confidence, but discolored teeth cannot always be improved through whitening. Dental bonding can help.
Dental bonding material is made up of a tooth-colored composite resin that can successfully be used to replace dental crowns, dental fillings, and other restorative and cosmetic procedures. Dental bonding is a cost-effective solution to dental procedures that involve a small amount of tooth restoration or cosmetic improvement.
Dental bonding uses the same material as dental fillings. Bonding is placed over the tooth and hardened with a specific type of light or laser. The bonding material is then gone over with a shaping and polishing tool by a cosmetic dentist to ensure the material closely matches the rest of the tooth.
Veneers will be shaded to accurately match the color of the rest of your beautiful smile.
Just as your teeth will be shaded to match existing grins, veneers are crafted to complement your unique features.
Veneers have been called “instant orthodontics,” because they are used to cover gaps and other imperfections in teeth.
Veneers offer a simple, effective way to cover visible imperfections like cracks and chips.
Dental bonding can successfully improve the appearance of teeth by treating all of the following issues:
These small dental problems are best treated using dental bonding because bonding is not an invasive or time-consuming procedure. With a strong success rate, dental patients can expect to see an immediate implementation and change to existing dental and oral hygiene concerns.
Dental bonding differs substantially from porcelain veneers and other cosmetic interventions that completely cover teeth to improve cosmetic function. As such, it is typically reserved for small issues in the teeth rather than more substantial concerns. Small chips and cracks can benefit from dental bonding, but a large-scale chip or crack will require a more significant change.
Your dentist will conduct a thorough evaluation of your oral health and dental care needs to determine whether or not your issues are prime candidates for dental bonding. Small decay and cosmetic needs are the issues most commonly and successfully treated through bonding.
Bonding is among the least expensive cosmetic procedures currently available. Typically, bonding procedures range from $100 to $400 per tooth. Some bonding procedures, such as fillings and repairs, are covered by insurance. Others, such as bonding to improve the color of teeth, are unlikely to be covered by your insurance company.
Should you require a more substantial bonding intervention, we do offer CareCredit financing.
Dental bonding is a less expensive form of cosmetic dentistry that can be used to treat simple damage to teeth and small cosmetic concerns. Whether you have teeth resistant to whitening treatments or you have a small chip in your tooth, dental bonding could be right for you.
