Tooth Bonding An Overview
Tooth bonding is a relatively simple procedure that can support your dental health and address a range of cosmetic and restorative concerns. Tooth bonding is an economical and convenient cosmetic dental treatment option for patients of all ages.
Dr. Leah Butler offers tooth bonding at Butler Family Dentistry in Strongsville, OH. Often recommended for younger patients with tooth damage or cosmetic concerns, tooth bonding can also be effective in treating:
- Tooth discoloration
- Small gaps between teeth
- Cracks, chips
- Misshapen teeth
Tooth bonding involves the placement of a composite resin material on the gently etched surface of the tooth. Sculpted into place by Dr. Butler for a natural appearance and comfortable bite, the resin material is color matched to your existing teeth or to complement your appearance. Tooth bonding can be a more cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers for children, teens and adult patients who may want to “try out” a new look before committing to veneers.
Is tooth bonding covered by dental insurance?
If you have dental insurance, we will work with you to determine if part or all of your tooth bonding treatment can be covered. In many cases, it is at least partially covered if there is trauma or a medical reason for the procedure. In the absence of insurance coverage, we will provide all costs for your consideration and can offer a range of payment options including financing with Care Credit.
