Prioritizing Our Patients' Health & Safety 

Dear patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
 
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
 
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
 
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
 
• If you are sick or concerned you might be sick, please cancel your appointment. You will not be penalized in any way for the cancellation, even at the last minute.
 
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. When you get to the office, you are asked to remain in your car and call our office number 972-412-5064. A staff member will come out to you and you will be asked those same screening questions again and have your temperature taken before entering the office.
 
• If you are a new patient, we would really appreciate you using the online patient portal to fill out paperwork prior to your appointment.
 
• We will ask you to immediately wash your hands with soap and water when you enter the office.
 
• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. There will also be very few chairs present to avoid crowds in the waiting room. Computers will have disposable covers and counter tops, door handles, waiting room chairs and surfaces will be disinfected with increased frequency.
 
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We will also ask that only the patient, and in necessary cases a legal guardian, enter the office. Older children and adults are requested to experience their appointments alone while family members remain in the car and/or waiting room.
 
• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
 
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 972-412-5064 or visit our website at www.mymouthdental.com.  
 
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Ramsey, Dr. Montoya and Team

The Cost of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding costs about $100 to $400 per tooth, making it an affordable way to address minor cosmetic concerns. The final cost of your treatment will depend on the number of teeth being addressed, your goals for treatment, and your location. Dental bonding is a less expensive option than porcelain veneers, making it an accessible treatment for patients who want to instantly transform their smile on a more conservative budget.

Cost of Dental Bonding vs. Porcelain Veneers

Dental bonding is a less expensive option than porcelain veneers, making it an accessible treatment for patients who want to instantly transform their smile on a more conservative budget. 

Dental bonding remains a popular cosmetic dentistry option because it is relatively inexpensive but still produces dramatic results. Similar to porcelain veneers, dental bonding can transform the brightness, size, and shape of a tooth. However, rather than using hand-layered porcelain manufactured in an outside lab, your dentist can mix composite resin in the office, saving both time and money. In comparison to dental bonding, veneers typically range from $800 to $3,000 per tooth.

Factors Affecting the Cost of Bonding

Factors Affecting the Cost of Veneers
The cost of bonding is impacted by the location of your dentist's office as well as the extent of treatment.

Elements to Consider When It Comes to Cost

While the cost of bonding varies from patient to patient, there are several factors that will largely influence the total cost of your treatment. These include:

  • Number of teeth being treated: Treatment for several teeth will cost more than a single tooth.
  • Size of treatment area: Filling in a small section of a tooth will cost less than resurfacing an entire tooth. 
  • Additional treatments: Complementary treatments can increase your expenses. If bonding is being incorporated into a smile makeover, talk to your dentist about potential discounts for bundled treatments.
  • Location of the office: Dental offices located in larger metropolitan areas often have higher treatment costs.
  • Experience of the dentist: Though a highly reputable dentist may charge more for their services, they can help ensure you achieve your desired results without complications.

Protecting Your Investment

Composite resin is durable but there are certain precautions you can take to keep your smile looking healthy and radiant. You should refrain from:

  • Biting your nails
  • Using your teeth to open packages
  • Smoking or using tobacco
  • Consuming large amounts of dark foods and drinks such as coffee and berries

Patients who grind their teeth should also ask their dentist about protective measures. Mouth guards and splints can prevent your teeth from touching, and in turn, from excessive wear and tear.

Financing Your Treatment

As dental bonding is often considered an elective cosmetic procedure, it is generally not covered by insurance. However, if treatment improves areas of the smile that are compromised by decay or damage, insurance may provide partial or full coverage. Many dentists also work with third-party lenders, such as CareCredit®, who offer flexible financing with low-interest to make treatment more accessible.
