Tooth bonding for patients in the San Francisco area
At the Center for Implant Dentistry, the San Francisco team provides more than just tooth replacements. Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta also offer patients cosmetic solutions such as tooth bonding. This is a treatment used to enhance the smile and address issues such as broken, chipped, permanently stained, or spaced teeth. It is a more affordable, faster solution than porcelain veneers.
Tooth bonding is sometimes known as dental bonding. It is a process of covering a tooth with composite resin. This material is like a putty that the dentist can mold onto the tooth, shape, harden, and polish so that it looks like natural tooth enamel. It can cover a wide range of issues and provide a fast, same-day alternative to porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers provide coverage as well, but the process of obtaining them can take several weeks, and they are more expensive. However, they are not susceptible to staining as composite resin can be.
The decision to use bonding is entirely up to the patient. Every patient has a different preference, so our team will discuss the benefits and disadvantages of each option so they can make an educated decision. Sometimes cost is more of an issue, and then bonding becomes the primary choice. Those who want to invest in their smile with a long-term option may prefer porcelain veneers. We will never push a patient to make a choice they donâ€™t truly want to pursue.
