Usually, when people think that they need to repair teeth that are damaged or crooked, they may believe that they need veneers or braces, but depending on the severity, they may not need either.
Thorough research in the mid-1980s led to a noninvasive technique that bonded tooth-like material to a chipped, fractured, or decayed tooth in order to improve its overall appearance. Using simple bonding, Dr. Kevin Sandefer, our San Antonio family dentist, is able to recontour, straighten, or lighten unattractive, crooked, or misshapen teeth in one visit.
Rest assured that at Alon Dental Care, patients who are cautious of dental procedures because they are painful, costly, or invasive need not worry. Bringing back that aesthetically pleasing allure of a properly aligned smile is achievable through this painless and economical technique called cosmetic bonding.
What is Cosmetic Bonding?
In the process of cosmetic bonding, a tooth-like material is applied as a filling to the hard outer layer of enamel, repairing a worn down or chipped tooth due to decay, trauma, or other oral health complications in a quick, minimally invasive manner. Truly the example of utility, cosmetic bonding can also be used to straighten or lengthen healthy teeth that are crooked and/or unsightly, often without the aid of anesthesia
As a practiced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sandefer has honed and perfected the art of cosmetic bonding for over 20 years. First, he applies a mild etching material directly to the tooth to create a surface that really grabs on to the bonding material. Once the surface of the tooth is ready, our cosmetic dentist applies a white enamel-like filling material to the etched surface, where it is then shaped, cured, or hardened for 10 seconds using a bonding light.
This revolutionary technique drastically improves the appearance of the outside surface of a tooth without extensive, expensive, or invasive orthodontic or surgical procedures, all in one visit. Imagine, with the help of Dr. Sandefer, chipped, decayed, or crooked teeth are a thing of the past through the power and innovation of science.
