What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a quick, easy way to conceal minor imperfections in a person’s smile. This treatment involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin to restore damaged or missing tooth enamel. This resin is sculpted by your child’s dentist into the perfect shape and size before being hardened with a special curing light. In just a single visit, your child can walk out of the office with a newfound confidence in their smile!
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a simple, cost-effective way to fix minor flaws in your child’s smile. They likely make a good candidate if they have imperfections like:
- Chipped Teeth
- Cracked Teeth
- Gaps Between Teeth
- Small or Irregularly Shaped Teeth
- Discolored Teeth
The Dental Bonding Process
Cosmetic bonding can be completed in a single appointment. First, we will make sure your child feels comfortable. Then, they will prepare the area by etching the surface of the tooth. A conditioning liquid will also be lightly coated on the tooth to ensure that the bonding material sticks. Once the tooth is prepared, their dentist will apply the tooth-colored resin and mold it to the desired shape, therefore hiding any chips, cracks, or small gaps. The bonding resin is then hardened using a special ultraviolet light. Lastly, we will polish and make any finishing touches to make the tooth look perfect!
