  • Correct chipped edges of teeth
  • Repair small fractures or cracks

Is Dental Bonding in Austin Right for Me?

At Harmony Dental Wellness, our dentist will complete a thorough oral examination before recommending a thoughtfully designed treatment plan. Our approach of providing a thorough examination is a strategy that's needed to assess your current chewing patterns and tooth positions and also to determine if grinding and wear is significant and may cause long-term concerns. This will help us learn whether the cosmetic changes you desire can become your reality through dental bonding.

If we determine that dental bonding may not meet your needs, Dr. Farahani will discuss other dental treatment options that can provide the solutions for your smile that you are looking for. Cosmetic dentistry in Austin, TX offers many options to help you reach your smile goals, such as invisible braces, porcelain veneers, tooth crowns, and professional teeth whitening. We will help you select the treatment that is right for you and your dental health. 

How Dental Bonding in Austin Restores Your Smile

Dental bonding is a quick, non-invasive, and comfortable way to help you achieve your smile goals since we can perform the procedure in one to two office visits, and we typically do not need to use anesthesia.

Dr. Farahani will create your restoration by skillfully layering natural-looking, tooth-colored resin to minimally prepared tooth surfaces, and adhering it to your tooth using a special LED Laser curing light. Composite resin material combines both plastic and glass particles that can be custom blended to match your teeth and smoothed into a translucent finish. The result is a beautiful, seamless, undetectable restoration.

The Difference Between Bonding and Veneers

One of the main differences between dental veneers and bonding is that a veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that fits over your tooth. To place a porcelain veneer, we remove a small amount of tooth structure, and your veneers are bonded directly to your teeth. Dental veneers are designed to cover many of the same imperfections that bonding corrects; however, another significant difference is that veneers can change the shape, color, and size of your teeth, allowing you to recreate your smile. In fact, many of the "Hollywood" smiles we admire have been enhanced and redesigned with porcelain veneers.

Unlike porcelain veneers, we don't consider dental bonding a permanent procedure because Dr. Farahani does not have to remove any tooth structure to place your restoration. Dental bonding in Austin is an excellent solution for patients who want to make small, but significant changes to their smile, while veneers are ideal for patients looking for substantial, permanent enhancements for their teeth.

Caring for Your New Smile

If dental bonding is the right procedure for your needs, you will find that your new restorations are durable and easy to care for as brushing and flossing your teeth remains the same. With excellent home care and regular dental checkups with your dentist in Austin, your bonding can potentially last for many years, making it a very cost-effective choice for enhancing your smile. 

The Importance of Feeling Confident About Your Smile

The confidence that a beautiful smile brings is a priceless gift to give yourself! If you don't like the way your teeth look, you might hide your smile, even if you don't even realize that you're doing it. Keeping your smile hidden may not allow you to make the right impressions in both social and business settings, and it could hold you back from achieving your goals. After all, your smile is one of the things people first notice when they meet you.

Science has also determined that smiling more helps us feel happier and healthier, and even affects the people around us because it causes them to smile as well. Improving your smile is worth it when it helps to boost your confidence so you can reach your goals. Dental bonding in Austin, TX is a procedure that makes it easy and affordable to achieve a smile that you're proud of in very little time.

Is Dental Bonding in Austin Expensive?

The cost of dental bonding varies significantly with each patient's unique needs. For example, you may require only one or two teeth to be repaired, while another patient may need six or seven. This will impact the cost of your treatment versus theirs.

The best way to precisely determine how much your bonding treatment plan will cost is to schedule your evaluation with Dr. Farahani. She will let you know the price of your procedure during your assessment, and our knowledgeable treatment coordinator can help you determine if your dental insurance may cover any of the treatment. We can also review your payment options with you at this time as we do work with companies like CareCredit that can help you finance your treatment if that is of interest to you.

The good news is that dental bonding tends to be much less expensive than other cosmetic treatments like porcelain veneers, so it is a very affordable treatment option for most patients.
