Who is a Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is an ideal dental treatment for individuals with small dental imperfections such as gaps, chips, and discoloration. It can also be used to repair cracks and support dental bridges.
The procedure itself involves the use of a dental composite that is directly applied to the tooth, contoured, and shaped to best meet the patient’s aesthetic preferences. It offers beautiful, natural looking results without the need for more costly dental treatments like veneers or crowns.
Is Dental Bonding Safe for Children?
Dentists often recommend dental bonding for children whose permanent teeth are still developing but may have permanently stained areas that can't be resolved with regular brushing and flossing. Bonding can improve their smile while eliminating embarrassment due to dental flaws they may be self-conscious about throughout their teen years.
