Pinehurst dentists Drs. Monroe and Monroe offer tooth bonding, a quick and economical treatment for minor cosmetic concerns or tooth damage.
How Does Tooth Bonding Work?
Cosmetic tooth bonding is basically the same process as a composite or white dental filling. Drs. Monroe and Monroe will apply a tooth-colored resin directly to the tooth, sculpt it into the desired shape, and cure the material with a special light. Little or no tooth preparation is needed. For this reason, tooth bonding is often not considered a permanent solution.
How long will it last?
With proper care and maintenance, you can expect most tooth bonding to last five years or more. At this time, tooth bonding can be repaired or replaced with a more permanent solution such as dental veneers.
How much does tooth bonding cost?
Dental bonding is a relatively affordable procedure and is commonly covered by dental insurance.
