Dental bonding costs about $100 to $400 per tooth, making it an affordable way to address minor cosmetic concerns. The final cost of your treatment will depend on the number of teeth being addressed, your goals for treatment, and your location. Dental bonding is a less expensive option than porcelain veneers, making it an accessible treatment for patients who want to instantly transform their smile on a more conservative budget.

Elements to Consider When It Comes to Cost

While the cost of bonding varies from patient to patient, there are several factors that will largely influence the total cost of your treatment. These include:

  • Number of teeth being treated: Treatment for several teeth will cost more than a single tooth.
  • Size of treatment area: Filling in a small section of a tooth will cost less than resurfacing an entire tooth. 
  • Location of the office: Dental offices located in larger metropolitan areas often have higher treatment costs.
  • Additional treatments: Complementary treatments can increase your expenses. If bonding is being incorporated into a smile makeover, talk to your dentist about potential discounts for bundled treatments.
  • Experience of the dentist: Though a highly reputable dentist may charge more for their services, they can help ensure you achieve your desired results without complications.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Bonding

The cost of bonding is impacted by the location of your dentist's office as well as the extent of treatment.

Protecting Your Investment

Composite resin is durable but there are certain precautions you can take to keep your smile looking healthy and radiant. You should refrain from:

  • Biting your nails
  • Using your teeth to open packages
  • Smoking or using tobacco
  • Consuming large amounts of dark foods and drinks such as coffee and berries

Patients who grind their teeth should also ask their dentist about protective measures. Mouth guards and splints can prevent your teeth from touching, and in turn, from excessive wear and tear.

Financing Your Treatment

As dental bonding is often considered an elective cosmetic procedure, it is generally not covered by insurance. However, if treatment improves areas of the smile that are compromised by decay or damage, insurance may provide partial or full coverage. Many dentists also work with third-party lenders, such as CareCredit®, who offer flexible financing with low-interest to make treatment more accessible.

To Our Wonderful Family of Patients:

Last night, my wife Connie and I enjoyed the most delicious take-out dinner from FIG restaurant. As always, the food was excellent; however, it was most satisfying to see the local restaurant, along with others, begin its comeback. Our resilient city feels like it is coming back to life—parks are opening and folks and families are enjoying the wonderful spring Charleston air. The Rink dental team is, too, readying itself for the next chapter of practicing dentistry as the community begins reopening its doors.

We are concentrating on continuing to advance our rock-solid foundation of state-of-the-art infection control. We were blessed to keep our dedicated and passionate team employed during the crisis, and have devoted the entire month of April to research, systematically developing, purchasing and installing the best additional infection control protocols and equipment available. We are ready. This month we will begin the process of a “soft opening” of our practice. What this means for our patients is a resumption of the same excellent restorative, esthetic, and preventive care in the safest and most secure environment available anywhere.

Additional safety steps will include asking our patients to wait for their appointments in their cars rather than in the reception area. We will ask that you take a moment to fill out a short questionnaire upon your arrival regarding your health and recent travels. We will take everyone’s temperature (including the team) with a forehead scanner as you enter the practice. We will clean and disinfect all touchpoints in the office in between each patient. We have procured the highest quality KN95 masks and face shields for the staff and have carefully researched and purchased the most advanced aerosol containment and purification systems available for the safety of all our patients. These are a few examples of how we have added additional layers of protection for your and our staff’s benefit.

Finally, I wholly understand that each one of you is an individual with specific desires, needs, and comfort levels. I want you to know that we are here to actively listen to you and to create the best environment for your emotional health. Some will be ready sooner than others to receive care again at our office. Let’s keep the lines of communication open and please know that our relationship with you and your family is our highest priority.

We look forward to reuniting with everyone but until that time it is our wish that you enjoy good health, good spirits, and peace.

To your optimal dental health,

- John F. Rink, DDS, AAACD and team
