In the event that your child has a tooth that has been chipped or cracked, or if a tooth has been slightly discolored or decayed, you will be presented with a few options for restoring your child’s tooth. These options can include dental crowns, veneers, and bonding.
Dental bonding is the fasted and most cost-effective of all of these options, but it’s also the one that people know the least about!
Dental bonding is a restorative dental procedure. The dental bonding procedure consists of composite resin being cemented to the surface of your child’s tooth to change the appearance of the tooth or to restore the functionality of the tooth. The resin is applied to the tooth and hardened through the use of a special light. Once hardened, it is then filed down to the proper size, shape, and thickness. Bonding will protect your child’s tooth from further damage.
