Is Dental Bonding Worth It?

It's never been easier to fix minor cosmetic dental problems. A quick appointment with Dr. Liel Allon and your smile will look as good as new. The more difficult part nowadays is deciding which procedure is best for you. For example, is dental bonding a good idea or should you consider other cosmetic procedures? 

Here's what you should consider. 

What Is Dental Bonding and Who Can Benefit From It? 

Dental bonding is a non-invasive and straightforward cosmetic dental procedure that can enhance the appearance of your smile. It uses a tooth-colored resin material that can cover a wide variety of dental imperfections. Once applied to the tooth, the resin is hardened with a special light so that it "bonds" to the tooth and improves its appearance. 

As we said, dental bonding can be used to correct various cosmetic issues, such as: 

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Uneven teeth

What Can I Expect During Dental Bonding Treatment? 

Dental bonding doesn't require any preparation. The entire treatment is very simple and can be done in one visit (unless the dentist needs to treat multiple teeth.) 

Dental bonding is among the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures one can get. But, since other treatments, such as veneers, can help you achieve similar results, you must ask yourself one important question: 

Is Dental Bonding Worth It? 

Whether dental bonding is worth it depends on your specific circumstances and goals. Here are a few factors to consider so that you can make the best decision for your needs: 

  • Cost: Dental bonding is cheaper compared to veneers or crowns. If you have a tight budget but still want to improve your smile, this option may be right for you. 
  • Durability: Although less expensive, dental bonding is not as durable or long-lasting as veneers, for example. Dental bonding usually lasts between 5 to 7 years while veneers can last as long as 15 years with the right care. So, although the upfront cost may be higher, it may make more economical sense to opt for veneers since they are longer lasting. 
  • Your Goal: If you only need to address a minor cosmetic issue like a small chip or crack, dental bonding can help you achieve excellent results in just one appointment. 
  • Non-invasive: Dental bonding is a relatively non-invasive procedure compared to veneers. In the case of veneers, the dentist will have to remove a bit of enamel, which makes the procedure irreversible. That's not the case with bonding and you can take the resin material off whenever you want.
