San Antonio Dental Bonding Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers. Chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect teeth that need cosmetic restorations can be fixed with one-appointment bonding. Bonding is composed of a composite resin, shaded to blend with your tooth’s color, and is used to restore shape and function back to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, the dentist artistically sculpts and polishes the restoration to a beautiful luster. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile!
How Long Does Dental Bonding Take?
Bonding is the least invasive way to correct a myriad of cosmetic dental problems in a single visit and with no injections. In the right situation, bonding and Whitening can be combined to create a beautiful new smile. At Parsi Pediatric and Family Dentistry, we don’t just practice dentistry, we create dental art!
Differences Between Dental Bonding and Porcelain Restorations
Cosmetic dental bonding is an effective and affordable treatment for minor repairs, but does not offer the same level of durability or support to surrounding tooth structure like porcelain veneers or crowns. For cases where the problem area is larger, needs to withstand more stress, or requires more exact shaping or shading, porcelain restorations are a better and longer-term solution.
