What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding, also called tooth bonding or composite bonding, is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material onto teeth. The procedure bonds a tooth-colored resin material to the teeth. Dental bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misarranged.

Dental Bonding Pros & Cons

Minimally invasive procedure Not as durable as other restorative options
Quick and painless Prone to staining and discoloration over time
Cost-effective compared to alternatives Bonded material may chip or break
Versatile application for various issues Limited in addressing major tooth alignment issues
Preserves natural tooth structure Not suitable for larger tooth damage

Common Issues Dental Bonding Can Fix:

  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Tooth reshaping
  • Tooth size and length including making teeth longer
  • Protect a tooth’s roots when gums recede
  • Worn down or decayed teeth
  • Replace amalgam fillings
  • Fill gaps in front teeth

Who is a Good Candidate for Dental Bonding?

A good candidate for dental bonding is someone with minor teeth cosmetic issues and who wishes to enhance their smile. This can include small chips, cracks, or gaps in teeth. Consult your dentist for a comprehensive evaluation to determine if dental bonding is the right treatment option for you.

Is Dental Bonding Permanent?

Dental bonding is not a permanent solution to cosmetic dental issues, but it is a long-lasting solution. The plastic resin used in dental bonding is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel. It’s more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. However, many patients can keep their dental bonds for 3-5 years. The better dental bonds and natural teeth are cared for, the longer the treatment will last.

How Long Does Dental Bonding Last on Front Teeth?

Dental bonding front teeth can last between 4 and 8 years, depending on your bite and eating habits. Many patients with bonding on their front teeth avoid biting directly into food. Eating hard foods can compromise the structure of dental bonding.


What Happens During a Dental Bonding Procedure?

Your dental bonding procedure will be done in a single office visit with a few simple steps:

  1. Preparation. The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid.
  2. Sculpting. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist.
  3. Trimming. Once the resin is set, it is trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural appearance.

Dental Bonding to Replace Amalgam Fillings

While dental bonding isn't as strong as amalgam fillings (silver-colored fillings), it is more aesthetically appealing since it uses a composite resin to match the natural teeth. Replacing amalgam fillings with dental bonding has become the more popular choice in recent years. The composite will bond to your teeth whereas the metal amalgam cannot.

Dental Bonding vs. Veneers

Dental bonding and veneers are both cosmetic procedures to enhance teeth's appearance. Choosing dental bonding vs. veneers involves several considerations when deciding on cosmetic dental procedures. Bonding is quick and affordable, but less durable and more prone to staining. Veneers are thin shells for long-lasting results but require more preparation.

How Much Does Dental Bonding Cost in Wisconsin?

Dental bonding costs per tooth can be anywhere from $100 to $600 per tooth on average in Wisconsin, depending on the condition of the tooth. Price-wise, dental bonding is typically cheaper than veneers. Unfortunately, most insurance firms don’t cover the cost of dental bonding if performed for cosmetic reasons. We’re happy to work with you to check your coverage.

Tooth Bonding Aftercare: How to Maintain & Care for Bonded Teeth

Follow proper aftercare guidelines to protect your bonded teeth. This can include maintaining good oral hygiene practices through brushing and flossing, avoiding biting on hard objects or chewing ice, and attending regular dental check-ups. Be sure to bring up any concerns you may have with your new dental bondings to your dentist along the way.

Composite Dental Bonding FAQs

How long should bonding last on teeth?

Dental bonding can last anywhere from 3 to 10 years or more with proper care, but it may require maintenance or replacement over time to ensure its longevity and effectiveness.

Is dental bonding painful?

How permanent is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a semi-permanent treatment that can last for several years with proper care. as dental veneers or crowns. Bonding is typically not as long-lasting as dental veneers or crowns, requiring maintenance or replacement over time.

Does bonding ruin your teeth?

Dental bonding does not ruin your teeth and can be removed. Dental bonds are not permanent – they may fade or become chipped, but they do not affect the natural enamel of your tooth. You will be able to go back to your existing tooth structure since the process is reversible.

Dana, my hygienist, did a fantastic job. With over 25 years of experience, she skillfully engaged in conversation with me while working on my teeth, making the cleaning process pleasant and comfortable. I also had the pleasure of meeting Kristi, Dr. DeMatthew's assistant, who was friendly and personable. Dr. DeMatthew herself was articulate in explaining the details of my dental health, making sure I understood everything clearly. Overall, my experience at Windsor Family Dental was wonderful, and I highly recommend Dr. DeMatthew and her staff.
