If your child has imperfections in the smile that make them feel self-conscious, it may be time to talk to our team at Park View Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics about the solutions available to your family. This may include a recommendation for a treatment known as dental bonding, a cosmetic solution used by both children and adults in the dental field.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding, often referred to as composite resin bonding, is the use of a biocompatible and tooth-colored material to address imperfections in the smile. It is a safe and appropriate way to address a variety of aesthetic concerns in a child’s smile and is fast and affordable for most patients.
What can be achieved with dental bonding?
Dental bonding can be used to repair a variety of dental issues, including:
- Fixing chipped or cracked teeth
- Covering discoloration and permanent staining
- Disguising gaps between teeth
- Disguising misshapen teeth
- Reshape the gum line
What are the advantages of composite resin bonding?
Dental bonding using composite resin materials is a fast and affordable way to improve the appearance of your smile without requiring extensive treatment. This procedure can usually be completed in one visit to the Park View Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics office and does not require any numbing or anesthesia for most of our young patients.
The overall goal of dental bonding is to provide you with a beautiful and natural-looking smile that meets your aesthetic goals. With proper care, bonded teeth can last for several years before needing any additional treatments or touch-ups. They are not stain-resistant, so regular consumption of foods and beverages that can discolor the teeth, such as berries and sodas, should be avoided or consumed in moderation.
Can my child benefit from dental bonding?
Children with imperfections in their smile may benefit from using composite resin bonding to repair their teeth and address aesthetics.
