Bonding and White Fillings

A bonding, also known as a white filling, is a dental adhesive that bonds to your natural teeth. This is a common treatment used to repair certain parts of the smile. A dental bonding repairs cracks, small gaps and improves discolored teeth – they can even elongate your shorter teeth. The simple procedure can make a dramatic difference to your smile.

How Does a Dental Bonding Procedure Work?

Your dentist will use a plastic tooth-colored material to form dental bonding. Once the composite is set it will be treated with a special light that will seal the material to the targeted area.

A polish is later applied to the filling, protecting it from stains and early damage. The process will typically last anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes per tooth.

Following Your Procedure

Your doctor will want you to keep clear of staining food and drinks like coffee just following your dental bonding treatment. Many patients report an increase in sensitivity for a short period of time.

How Much Does a Dental Bonding Cost?

The price of your dental bonding may vary on several criteria. Many insurance companies are willing to cover the cost of this procedure. Call our Arizona dental offices today to discuss pricing options now!
