Cosmetic dental bonding is a process that corrects crooked teeth, closes gaps and restores teeth that are decaying. Dentists place a thin layer of plastic on the surface of the tooth, hiding stains, chips and gaps. The last step involves applying bonding, color and polish to give the plastic a more natural appearance.
The price for cosmetic dental boding will vary by location and dentist. The price will also depend on the procedure and amount of work that you require.
The average price for most patients ranges from $300 to $600 for each individual tooth. The cost may be less if the damage or gap is small, or more if there is extensive damage.
Some insurance companies may cover dental bonding. These companies are more likely to cover the cost if it is a reconstructive procedure.
Cosmetic dental bonding will last up to 11 years through normal wear. Once it becomes loose or discolored, it is time to replace the dental bonding.
