Dental bonding is a simple, conservative way to improve the appearance of your child’s smile. During the bonding process, our skilled dentist and team place a composite resin material directly onto the tooth structure. Because the resin is malleable and putty-like when first applied, we can shape and sculpt it to fit your child’s tooth and correct flaws in the tooth’s appearance. The composite resin is then hardened, trimmed and polished to provide a lasting, esthetic restoration for your child’s smile. Dental bonding typically requires just one visit to our welcoming dental office, and because this treatment usually necessitates little to no tooth preparation, you can rest assured that your child’s visit will be quick and comfortable.
Our dentist may recommend dental bonding in order to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth. We will use a shade of composite resin that matches the original color of your child’s teeth for a natural-looking effect. If you would prefer, we can use a slightly lighter shade to whiten the color of your child’s teeth.
