But this cosmetic procedure provides other benefits as well, which is why Dr. Williamson is pleased to offer dental bonding to his San Antonio, Texas patients.
What You Need to Know about Dental Bonding
Bonding is a simple procedure – so simple, in fact, that it’s often completed in just a single trip to our office. The process begins with Dr. Williamson applying a thin layer of composite bonding material to the affected teeth. After that, he literally molds the material into a completely natural-looking tooth. After the molding is done, he applies a specially designed light to help harden the bonding material. The composite mixture is made to exactly match the shade of your other teeth. So you can have just a single tooth bonded or, if you’d prefer, you can have all of your front “visible” teeth bonded for a beautiful, stunning new smile!
As remarkable as bonding is in improving the appearance of your teeth, it also serves other important purposes. Bonding is often an excellent way to repair minor damage to teeth, such as cracks, chips, misshapen teeth or badly stained teeth. But this cosmetic procedure has other benefits. If you or a family member are cavity-prone, dental bonding can smooth out the surface of the teeth, removing many of the tiny crevices where bacteria collect and form cavities. The result is teeth that are not only more attractive and protected – they are also less likely to develop decay.
Although dental bonding is a great option for many people, Dr. Williamson wants to remind is patients that it may not be the best choice for everyone. The only way to find out for sure is to schedule an appointment with our office today!
