Cosmetic dental bonding for repairing a tooth in San Francisco, CA area practice
Imperfections can occur to the smile over time. Some patients may also have imperfections that have been present over the years, and they may not have been sure as to the best way to address them. Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way, and many patients in San Francisco, CA, find that dental bonding can cover one tooth or several teeth and provide natural repair. At West Portal Family Dentistry, we work with new and current patients to help them achieve the appearance they desire with composite resin bonding, a popular aesthetic solution.
What is composite resin bonding?
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, Drs. Terri Nguyen and Laura Huynh of West Portal Family Dentistry encourage patients to consider the most conservative options for them. In many situations, composite resin bonding may be the most effective. This material is bonded to a tooth and can
- Fix chipped or cracked teeth
- Hide permanent discoloration on a tooth
- Disguise gaps between the front teeth
This material is natural-looking, ensuring seamless integration with the natural tooth enamel.
What are the advantages of cosmetic dental bonding?
Our dentists encourage patients to consider cosmetic dental bonding for its many advantages. This cosmetic solution is fast and simple, and repairs can be done in a single appointment. Composite resin bonding does not require the dentist to remove natural tooth structure in the same way porcelain veneers and dental crowns do, making it the most conservative way to address imperfections. The restoration looks great and provides an effective solution.
How long does composite resin bonding last?
Most patients who care for their smiles and visit the dentist regularly for examinations will be able to enjoy their dental restoration for many years. In many situations, the composite resin will last anywhere from five to ten years before requiring replacement.
Should I have composite resin bonding completed?
