Dental bonding is an affordable, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that can correct a number of different imperfections in your child’s smile. Here are some of the reasons your child might need cosmetic bonding:
- After a fall or injury, they have a chipped front tooth.
- They have a severely discolored tooth that causes them embarrassment.
- A tooth is fractured or cracked after biting into something hard, but the pulp of the tooth is not affected.
- They have a tooth that is noticeably malformed.
We choose a bonding material that matches the shade of your child’s tooth and then carefully sculpt it for a natural appearance that blends in perfectly with the rest of their smile. No one will guess that their tooth has been bonded and because bonding lasts many years, it’s suitable for both adult and baby teeth.
What to Expect During a Cosmetic Bonding Procedure
There’s no need for local anesthesia or sedation for cosmetic bonding—the process is quick and painless. Your child’s tooth will be prepared with a special solution that ensures the bonding material will adhere to the surface of the tooth. Then, the bonding is placed directly onto the affected area and shaped to match the appearance of a natural tooth. Once we are happy with how the bonded tooth looks, we use a curing light to harden the material. Bonding can often be completed in a matter of minutes.
