However, as you decide which treatment to receive, you may wonder if the composite bonding cost is within your budget.
At Seattle Specialty Dentistry, we are committed to creating a dental experience that empowers you. Part of that is educating our patients so they can make informed decisions about their oral health.
In this blog, we're sharing the details, including costs, of composite bonding as a viable option for tooth repair.
What is composite bonding?
Composite bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the teeth. We primarily use it to:
- Repair a chipped tooth
- Fix a crack
- Close a gap
- Reshape or resize a tooth to improve aesthetics
Factors influencing composite bonding cost
In general, this is a cost-effective treatment option, offering a non-invasive and relatively quick solution for achieving a beautiful smile. But the cost can vary based on several factors.
Understanding these factors will help you evaluate the expenses involved and help you determine if it's an affordable treatment. Key factors that influence composite bonding cost include:
Extent of treatment
The number of teeth requiring bonding directly affects the overall cost. More extensive treatment involving multiple teeth will naturally incur higher expenses.
Complexity of the case
Complex cases, like those with severely damaged or misaligned teeth, may require additional preparatory procedures, resulting in increased costs.
Location and dental practice
The dental practice’s geographical location and the dentist and staff’s experience impact pricing, too. Practices in urban areas and those with renowned cosmetic dentists often charge higher fees.
The quality and type of composite resin used can affect the cost. Higher-quality materials typically come with higher prices but yield more durable and aesthetically pleasing results.
If you opt for ancillary treatments like teeth whitening or gum contouring combined with composite bonding, the overall cost will reflect the total expenses.
Average composite bonding cost
On average, the composite bonding price per tooth ranges from $150 to $600. However, it's important to note that this figure can vary depending on the factors above.
Consulting with our Seattle cosmetic dentist will provide an accurate estimate based on your requirements.
Benefits of composite bonding
Composite bonding offers numerous benefits beyond just cost-effectiveness. Here are a few advantages worth considering:
Improved smile aesthetics
Composite bonding can help transform your smile, covering imperfections and enhancing the overall appearance of your teeth.
