3 Reasons Dental Bonding is Cost Effective

Posted on: June 16, 2019

Dental bonding is often the most cost-effective way to deal with a variety of dental issues. It is a non-invasive treatment that provides immediate results. It involves applying a composite resin directly to the tooth that needs repairing. The composite is the same color as to the patient's teeth, and patients will hardly be able to tell they've had the procedure, much less anyone else.

Dental bonding is often used to deal with oral issues like:

  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Deformed teeth
  • Minor chips
  • Damaged teeth due to decay

Dentists can treat many issues with dental bonding, and they can also perform other treatments like the installation of prosthetics, i.e., crowns or veneers. However, many dentists like to use composite resins as the first course of action, especially if the patient is reluctant to get more invasive treatments or is dealing with budget constraints.

Advantages of dental bonding

1. It is cheaper than other alternatives

As was mentioned earlier, dental bonding does not cost as much as pricier treatments like getting a crown. The result looks like a natural tooth, and it can last up to five years with good oral hygiene. Dental prosthetics like crowns can last up to 20 years, but, when a person's budget is limited, a solution that costs only a fraction of others and can last up to five years is a great option to explore.

2. It requires a single visit to the dentist

The alternatives to dental composites like veneers and crowns typically require multiple visits to the dentist. This naturally leads to higher dental bills since the dentist and their staff have to spend more time treating the patient. Also, a treatment that only requires a single visit to the dentist means that the patient will have to take less time off from work or school. That saves them the most important resource in the world: time.

3. It is not a permanent solution

Getting dental prosthetics like crowns and veneers sometimes requires the removal of small amounts of enamel. After removing a tooth's enamel, it will need to be protected by some dental prosthetic for the rest of the person's life. Enamel serves a fundamental role in protecting teeth from acids, so failing to protect the tooth with a prosthetic will leave it very susceptible to decay and with increased sensitivity. With dental bonding, no permanent alterations are made to the person's teeth, so the tooth still has its enamel to protect it if the composite wears off or a dentist removes it later.
