What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a minimally invasive procedure that applies a composite resin to a tooth to improve its appearance – as well as fix chips, cracks, and discoloration. The resin is molded and bonded with an adhesive to blend seamlessly into the tooth.

Is Cosmetic Tooth Bonding Right for You?

Improve Your Teeth’s Appearance

Cosmetic bonding is an ideal solution to fix imperfections and create the perfect smile – without needing more extensive dental work.

Get a Minimally-Invasive Procedure

Unlike crowns and veneers, cosmetic bonding does not require a significant removal of the tooth’s enamel. This option keeps the majority of your natural tooth intact to maintain its structure.

Pay Less for a Long-Term Solution

Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments like crowns and veneers – making it an ideal option if insurance does not cover the procedure

The Cosmetic Bonding Process
at The Dental House


Color Match

Step one is choosing the composite resin that matches the natural color of your teeth. Our goal is to choose the option that makes your tooth look 100% natural and polished.


Prepare the Tooth

Preparing your tooth involves lightly roughening the surface with a phosphoric solution. This gives the composite resin something to cling to and bond more effectively.


Apply the Bonding Agent

Once the tooth is ready, we’ll apply the bonding agent – which helps the resin adhere to the tooth.


Apply the Composite Resin

The next step involves applying the moldable resin directly to the tooth. We’ll then shape it to match your tooth’s natural contours to address the issue and blend in seamlessly.


Solidify the Resin

After we finish shaping the resin to your tooth, we use a special curing light to harden the material and firmly attach to the tooth’s surface.


Provide the Finishing Touches

We’ll do a final examination and make any necessary adjustments – which may involve trimming excess, shaping, or polishing the composite to blend in better.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does cosmetic bonding cost?

The cost of cosmetic bonding can vary based on the extent of the procedure and the number of teeth operated on. These costs commonly range from $200 to $600 per tooth. At The Dental House, we’ll provide a crystal-clear cost and explanation upfront – no surprise fees or upcharges.

How long does cosmetic bonding last?

Cosmetic bonding typically lasts 3-10 years before needing to be touched up or replaced, depending on the care and maintenance it receives. The lifespan is primarily influenced by oral habits – biting nails, chewing on hard objects, or grinding teeth, as well as by the location of the bonding in the mouth.

Does dental insurance cover cosmetic bonding?

Most insurance plans consider bonding a cosmetic procedure and may not cover it. However, you may be able to argue that bonding is necessary for structural reasons or to fill a cavity – and your insurance may partially or fully cover the cost. Check with your insurance provider to understand what aspects of the procedure are covered.

How does cosmetic bonding work?

Cosmetic bonding works by applying a tooth-colored composite resin to your teeth. We’ll prepare the tooth surface by lightly texturing it to help the resin bond, and then apply the resin. The resin is then molded and smoothed to the desired shape, then hardened with a curing light. The bonded tooth is polished to blend with the surrounding teeth.

How long does cosmetic bonding take?

The cosmetic bonding procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth – but this can vary. Since the process is relatively straightforward and can usually be completed in a single visit, it’s an appealing option if you’re looking for a quick way to improve the appearance of your teeth without the need for more invasive procedures.
