Have you recently decided that dental bonding offers smile improvements that will work for your goals? Fortunately, bonding is capable of addressing minor problems like chips and cracks, while transforming the beauty of your smile. However, just because you are fully educated (and impressed) regarding the advantages, you may find that you don’t feel 100 percent ready to move forward with treatment. If the cause of your hesitation is a list of questions you would first like answered, we understand. We encourage you to consider some additional information, so you feel knowledgeable, confident, and completely ready.
Frequently Asked Questions About Bonding
Question: I’m interested in dental bonding but I also want to remove some of my tooth tissue – can I choose both bonding and contouring for esthetic smile improvements?
Answer: Yes, you may use both of these treatments. Dental bonding will allow you to “add tissue” to areas that need it (such as to cover cracks, improve chips, fill spaces, or lengthen a tooth). We may also use contouring on your teeth to gently buff away excessive or poorly shaped areas of tissue.
Question: Is dental bonding going to be very costly? I really want to make my smile look better but I am on a strict budget.
Answer: No. Both dental bonding and contouring are considered extremely friendly to a variety of budgets. If you are looking for the smartest investment to protect your budget, bonding is a good choice.
Question: How do I know if I qualify as a candidate for bonding?
Answer: By scheduling a cosmetic consultation with us, we can tell you with certainty whether bonding is right for you. However, most patients make good candidates. Keep in mind, we can only use bonding on natural tooth tissue – not over dental prosthetics.
