Children’s Dental Bonding in NYC

Teeth Whitening for Kids in NYC | Park View Pediatric Dentistry

At Park View Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics in NYC, we are committed to helping our patients achieve healthy and confident smiles. When faced with problems including chipped or misshapen teeth or large spaces between teeth, our pediatric dentists may recommend a cosmetic dental bonding procedure, also called teeth bonding. Learn more below, or schedule an appointment today!

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a special filling that can restore, reshape, and rejuvenate teeth, improving both the function and appearance of our patients’ smiles. The dental bonding material is a composite resin or modifiable ceramic that hardens and fuses to the tooth when our dentists shine a special light on it. Dental bonding is often recommended for the correction of minor cosmetic issues such as chipping, cracks, discoloration, or gaps in between the teeth.

Dental Bonding Patient Testimonial

"My 1.5 year old came in to get crowns on her chipped two front teeth. The staff there was incredible! So professional, kind, and truly knew what they were doing. We had the absolute best experience & wish we lived closer to continue seeing them! Highly recommend! Attached is my daughters before & after!"

When is dental bonding used?

Our pediatric dentists may use bonding to correct:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Broken or misshapen teeth
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Stained teeth

How Long Does the Dental Bonding Procedure Take?

The time it takes to perform dental bonding depends on the number of teeth that need to be bonded and the degree of bonding as well. However, most dental bonding procedures take between one and two hours to complete.

What Dental Conditions Can Bonding Correct?

Dental bonding can correct a variety of dental problems, including:

  • Chipped teeth.
  • Fractured teeth.
  • Gaps between teeth.

It is important to note that dental bonding may not be the right choice for teeth that are severely misaligned or crooked. In these specific situations, orthodontic correction may be recommended, depending on the age of the patient.

How Long Does Dental Bonding Last?

With proper oral hygiene and follow-up care, dental bonding can last up to 10 years. The bonded teeth look and function just like your child’s natural teeth. And when dental bonding is performed by an experienced pediatric dentist, no one will ever know that they had dental work done. All they will see is how beautiful their smiles are!

How Do You Take Care of Dental Bonding?

Proper oral hygiene is a must, especially with dental bonding. You or your child should brush no less than twice a day, floss regularly, and return for regular dental exams and cleanings as instructed by your dentist. It is also a good idea to avoid biting or eating food that can break the dental bonding. In addition to hard snacks, like pretzels, chewing ice also needs to be avoided. Also, just like natural teeth, dental bonding may become discolored or stained by certain types of food or beverages.

What does getting dental bonding involve?

Dental bonding is performed in-office. It involves our pediatric dentists applying a thin layer of bonding material to the affected tooth, which is then sculpted like clay and shaped to correct the cosmetic concern. Using a special light, our dentists will harden the material and securely fuse it with the existing tooth. Next, the bonding will be polished until it’s smooth.

A teeth bonding procedure typically takes one to two hours to perform and results last about ten years. Bonded teeth look and function just like natural teeth. The dental bonding material can be colored as well as molded, so our dentists are able to match the shade of existing teeth. When bonding is performed by an experienced dentist, people will not be able to tell that you’ve had cosmetic work done on your teeth – other than seeing how good your smile looks!
