Alternative Solutions to Teeth Bonding
Teeth bonding otherwise known as dental bonding is a dental procedure aimed to fill in gaps, chips and breaks in your smile. Using a resin, a dentist will fill in the gaps in need of attention and will shape and colour it to match your surrounding teeth. Bonding is a cheaper alternative to crowns which can be expensive and requires the tooth to be sanded down. This means with bonding no surgical procedure is needed unless your tooth is decaying. As a non-invasive product, dental bonding with resin should not harm the natural health of your surrounding teeth.
Disadvantages of cosmetic bonding
Not Very Durable - Although the plastic used for teeth bonding is decent, it isn’t as durable as the materials used for veneers or crowns.
Don’t Last Long - The resin used in teeth bonding can last as little as 2 years which would mean repeated trips to the dentist and ongoing costs.
Easy to Stain - The materials used in the resin are very susceptible to becoming stained from various foods, drinks and other lifestyle choices such as smoking. Such food and drinks include tomato based products, tea, coffee and cigarettes.
Damages Easily - the resin used for bonding procedures is very susceptible to general wear and tear. As the material isn’t made for excessive, continued usage, many tooth bonds can become cracked, chipped or even dislodged which in turn could lead to some discomfort.
As you can imagine, teeth bonding can be a good short term fix to some dental abnormalities, however, it could be a fragile procedure as it’s not renowned for its durability or longevity. Also, as these bonds are fixed to the tooth, there is no way of taking them out if needed.
Cost of Tooth Bonding
Dental bonds are a cheaper alternative to some more hefty procedures such as crowns, however, they can still become fairly pricey. With the total price ranging from £94 - £284 per tooth, the procedure can become costly assuming that an updated procedure is needed every few years.
But what if you could have a quality product that you could take in and out easily, cover multiple gaps and chips and brighten your smile? Well, there is an answer.
