Dental Bonding in San Antonio
Dental bonding is a quick, minimally invasive cosmetic and restorative procedure that uses tooth-colored composite resin material to enhance the look and function of teeth. At Henwood Family Dentistry in San Antonio TX, we provide expert dental bonding for flaws like stains, chips, gaps, and misshapen teeth to give you the beautiful smile you deserve.
The dental bonding process involves applying the bonding material to the surface of the tooth and sculpting it into the desired shape. We then harden the resin with a special light, bond it to the underlying tooth structure, and polish it for a smooth finish. The resin seamlessly blends in for natural-looking improvements.
What Are the Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
Advantages of dental bonding include:
- Quick and Minimally Invasive – Bonding takes just 30-60 minutes to complete with no anesthesia needed. Little to no tooth removal is required.
- Cosmetic Enhancement – Bonding masks stains, brightens discoloration, fills gaps, reshapes teeth, and corrects other aesthetic flaws.
- Repair of Chips and Cracks – Small chips and cracks in the teeth can be restored with bonded resin. This prevents further damage.
- Reduced Tooth Sensitivity – Sealing over areas of exposed dentin with resin stops sensitivity and pain from hot and cold stimuli.
- Tooth Size and Shape Correction – Teeth can be made to look longer, shorter, or more uniform in size with dental bonding.
