Having deep stains, dapple or granulated and yellow teeth can be an comedown to some and these discolorations may need to be reduced by a dentist with dental bonding operations such as traditional bonding, veneers or complete crowns to give you a more beautiful look. Even though its not as conservative as common whitening, the bonding may assist in achieving a more wholesome facial image.
Technically speaking, tooth bonding is actually a process of which a material is bound onto the tooth surface. It is commonly used as the layman term for veneers. Veneers are shell-like facings, usually made of composite resins or porcelain that is connected to the exterior of your teeth.

Indications for dental bonding
1. Intrinsic discoloration or tooth exterior defects caused by:
2. Other permanent discoloration not fixable by common bleaching techniques

4. To repair peg-shaped lateral teeth
5. In order to close proximal gaps and diastemas
6. In order to repair (some) fractured tooth edges
7. Particularly useful in children where more extensive tooth preparation may risk exposure of the tooth pulp

What are the kinds of aesthetic dental bonding?
There exists direct and indirect composite resin veneers. Indirect composite veneers are created in a dental laboratory from an impression of your teeth. A meager amount of tooth structure must be expelled for this indirect composite restoration.
A direct technique for composite bonding does not demand as much extraction of tooth structure. Teeth affirmed for composite bonding are disengaged, waxed with pumice and acid-etched. A dental bonding agent and an optional murky can be added before the composite is molded onto the tooth exterior. This process can correct the guise and body of the teeth.
This process is fast and needs only one visit. It is relatively reasonably priced and is great for adolescent teeth with large pulps. However it can appear colossal and has the potential to shrink, chip and smudge over time.
Traditional Porcelain veneers
A porcelain veneer is great for older tooth. Creation of a porcelain veneer uses an indirect technique and involves development of the tooth by getting rid of a thin layer of teeth structure, making a vestige and dispatching the a vestige to the laboratory for building of the porcelain veneer. A temporary veneer is forged and worn until the second visit. On the next visit, the temporary veneer is expelled and the permanent veneer is placed and bound to the teeth exterior with composite.
Porcelain veneer can be colossal and if they are not done properly, can smudge the margins and can chip. They are costly but have good beautiful properties and are more permanent than composite veneers.
LUMINEERS are ultra-thin (approximately 0.2 mm) and very translucent dental bonding veneers made out of porcelain, letting them to replicate the natural look of tooth color. Although traditional veneers are quite a bit thicker, needing the grinding down of the original tooth enamel, little to no tooth reduction is necessary for the bonding of LUMINEERS because of its thin state. The LUMINEERS are bound to normal teeth in a similar way like composite veneers therefore doesn't need anesthesia which is different from traditional porcelain veneers.
How much would dental bonding cost?
Dental bonding procedure costs vary according to the type of veneers used.
There may be a cost for the first consultation ($65-$102) and X-rays ($13-$135). Dental bonding are very rarely paid for by dental insurance.
