If you’re looking for an affordable cosmetic treatment to improve your smile, consider dental bonding. Dental bonding is a non-invasive dental procedure that may even be covered by your dental insurance. The total you may expect to pay for dental bonding will depend upon the number of teeth you need to be bonded. In general, you may expect to pay between $300-$600 per tooth for dental bonding in Toronto. Keep in mind that at Kingwest Dental Studio, we proudly offer and accept financing through Splitit, so that you can finance dental bonding with no interest, and no down payment required. Read on to learn more about dental bonding in Toronto.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a painless, quick, and easy way to repair chipped teeth, broken teeth, discoloured teeth, or slightly misaligned teeth. Most people who are free of active gum disease will be excellent candidates for dental bonding. That means that you can often correct an imperfect smile, and improve your self-confidence in a single visit.

As an incredibly popular cosmetic procedure, dental bonding begins with tooth etching. During this process, the tooth or teeth that will be bonded are lightly scraped. A special liquid is then applied to your tooth or teeth to prepare it for the resin that forms the bond.

The resin applied will match your tooth color, and will be used to fill in chips, or cover small cracks. It can also be used to reshape your teeth.  Once the resin has fully set, Dr. Sobhi will trim, smooth, and polish the resin to create a natural appearance.  The entire procedure can be completed in a single office visit, allowing you to leave your appointment with a brand new smile you’re proud to show others.

Are There Any Risks Associated With Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is completely safe. There are no adverse risks of dental bonding. This simple outpatient procedure doesn’t even require anesthesia unless you’re having another dental procedure done in the same visit. There is no recovery time needed.  

What is the Difference Between Dental Bonding and Porcelain Veneers?

Dental bonding and porcelain veneers are both cosmetic dental procedures, but that’s essentially all they share in common. Dental bonds use resin to reshape or correct minor imperfections in your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers, by contrast, are made from ceramic material, and completely cover your natural teeth. Once you get veneers, you will need veneers forever, as your natural teeth underneath them will need to be sculpted to allow for the veneers to fit over them.

Porcelain veneers are more expensive than dental bonding, but they offer a lot of benefits that make them superior to dental bonding. Veneers are incredibly durable and resistant to staining. They may last fifteen years or longer.  Dental bonds by contrast are susceptible to discoloration, and the results may only last a few years.
