Questions About Dental Crowns

Cosmetic Dentistry for Beverly Hills & Los Angeles, CA

Dental crowns address a number of dental problems including fixing teeth that decayed, cracked, chipped, or gapped. Dental crowns can also fix teeth that are misshapen or too short.

What material is dental bonding made of?

Dental crowns are made of a resin that is matched to the natural color of your teeth.

What should I expect during the dental bonding process?

Your cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kevin Sands, uses a composite resin to store and reshape damaged and decayed teeth in many different ways. Dr. Sands has used dental bonding to fill gaps between teeth, to remove stains and to straighten crooked teeth. After the dental bonding material is applied to your tooth, Dr. Sands will shape and sculpt it, and then harden the material using a high-intensity light. Dr. Sands will then polish the surface. Dental bonding can last up to seven years.

Does bonding take long?

As with all procedures the time it takes varies from patient but patient, but generally speaking, m minor teeth bonding issues can be taken care of in one office visit. Additional time will be necessary for more complicated procedures, of course.

What are some advantages of dental bonding?

Bonds are much more structurally sound, and composites can be color-matched to your natural teeth. Bonding is great for fixing minor chips and cracks and gaps that exist between teeth.

How much does bonding cost?

Again, this varies from case to case, but typically speaking, the price is between $300-$600 and depends on the number of office visits necessary to complete the process.
