BONDING

Bonding is the name for the dental procedure where tooth colored composite resins (plastic) are applied to teeth, then artistically sculpted, hardened and polished to create a new appearance. Bonding is utilized to enhance individual teeth or entire smiles, altering the shape and or appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, damaged or decayed. Bonding is a very artistic and difficult procedure to perform well and requires a lot of training and artistic talent. Bonding is different from veneering teeth in that the entire procedure is performed on the teeth and can take many hours and appointments based on how many teeth are to be treated and the artistic quality of the work being performed.

HOW MUCH DOES BONDING COST?

We are commonly asked the question of, "How much does BONDING Cost?"

There is sometimes a misconception that all dentists and their work are the same or that bonding is simple and performed well by all dentists. Any industry that offers personalized service and utilizes artistic, custom fabrication of a product or service can never be duplicated or offer the same outcome. Many dentists may do things similarly and get similar results but there are also highly skilled dentists that offer substantially different results because of their training, skill and artistry. Remember the process of fixing a tooth or a smile is 100% custom and the skill, training and artistic abilities of the dentist is what makes for a good appearance. The custom, artistic fabrication and handling of the tooth is unique to each tooth in our office, unlike most offices that treat every tooth the same and will often use the same filling materials to create their restorations as compared to someone that utilizes numerous different products to achieve an amazing result.

So shopping by only price will typically get you a poor outcome. We can say this because almost half of the cases we treat are Replacing Cosmetic Dental Procedures due to appearance and lack of skill when creating new cosmetic appearances. When you are evaluating an office you need to find out about their process, how many cases they have done and what training they have. I would want to see that they have done lots of cases and have lots of photos of their work so that i can see what type of craftsmanship I would be purchasing. We can make teeth any color shape or appearance vs many offices create the same look for every patient. Because of the custom nature of each tooth and smile being different, the technique that the dentist and laboratory technician provide will be varied based on the difficulty of each case. Hence there is not a set fee, but rather a range based on degree of difficulty, time and materials involved. With all the variability it's like asking a mechanic how much it costs to fix your car without them seeing the car first. They really need to see what all is involved, to determine the parts necessary and time to do the work. Dentistry is a custom procedure for each tooth and situation it is not something we pull off a shelf and do the same for everyone.

Bonding per tooth can range from a few hundred dollars to well over one thousand dollars for a bigger more difficult case. Someone charging a low fee often means you will get what you pay for and might cost you even more if you then have to find someone else to redo what has been done, but the damage to your tooth structure can never be repalced. So be very careful who you allow to work on your teeth. The wide range of costs are based on skill, training, technique and materials.

Dr. Todd Snyder is an international lecturer and author on Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry. Dr Snyder has authored over 100 articles on cosmetic dentistry and has co-authored numerous books. Dr Snyder has been lecturing around the world on cosmetic and restorative dentistry for over 30 years and even co-developed and co-directed the first and only 2 year post graduate program on Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry when he was teaching at UCLA. The program no longer exists, hence most dentists now take weekend classes or watch online videos and then practice on their patients.

We offer complementary consultations to offer education and determine a cost for each unique case. We offer patients knowledge on the process of cosmetic alteration of tooth structure and what to look for when interviewing other dentists before making a decision based solely upon the cost.

We hope this helps. If we can be of any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact our office.
