Bonding is a term dentists use to describe several different types of procedures they use to cover discolored teeth, repair chips or cracks, and fill in gaps with special plastics or with a porcelain-like material.

The material, chosen in a shade to match your teeth, is attached to the tooth surface, then exposed to special light that hardens it in seconds. Once the material is hard, the tooth can be shaped and polished for a natural look and feel.

Not everyone is a good candidate for bonding. If you have close, small gaps between your front teeth, or if you have chipped or cracked teeth, bonding may be right for you. It's also used for patients who have discolored teeth, uneven teeth, gum recession or tooth decay.

The cost of bonding varies according to the type of bonding process you need. Many insurance plans cover most of the cost of the bonding, particularly when it is done for structural reasons. The average cost ranges from $100 to $800 per tooth.
