Cosmetic Dental Bonding Candidates

Cosmetic Composite Dental Bonding Kansas City

Composite Dental Bonding is a prime answer for teeth with gaps, chips, cracks, and discoloration. Using natural-looking composite material, Dental Bonding seals in strength and adds shine to any dull or brittle surface. This durable material usually lasts 10-15 years and may require some touch-up maintenance or replacement over time depending on oral health and hygiene habits.

Cost of Dental Bonding

The pricing of Dental Bonding is based on the health of the tooth in question and is significantly lower than Porcelain Veneers and other cosmetic dentistry options. Ranging between $200-$600 per tooth, Dental Bonding is completely customizable with unlimited options and an array of shades to match or brighten a specific small or entire area of a tooth. For cosmetic purposes, Dental Bonding may be a reversible option for those not wanting to commit to a permanent reconstruction. In other cases, some insurance policies may offer Dental Bonding benefits if  the health of the tooth is at risk requiring a permanent restorative option to stop recurrent decay or damage. 

At the office of John P. Goodman, DDS, Cosmetic Bonding can be completed quickly during a same-day appointment and even over a lunch break, giving an instant Smile Makeover. See more Cosmetic Dental Bonding cases by John P. Goodman, DDS in our Photo Gallery.
