Tooth Bonding An Overview

Tooth bonding can be the perfect solution for the cosmetic or restorative needs of a pediatric dental patient. Dr. Miller can address a range of dental concerns with tooth bonding and stabilize a young patient’s oral health for many years. Common reasons for recommending tooth bonding can include:

  • Chipped or damaged tooth
  • Discolored tooth
  • Gaps between permanent teeth in a teen
  • Cosmetic concerns in adolescents and teens

Using a tooth-colored composite resin, Dr. Miller can address your child’s needs during one visit with a tooth bonding procedure. Tooth bonding is typically painless and most young patients can tolerate the procedure with a local anesthetic to numb the treated area. We will explain all aspects of the tooth bonding procedure before we begin to minimize any anxiety.

Cosmetic Concerns in Teens

Teen patients may have concerns about the appearance of their smile but are not yet ready for more permanent treatments like porcelain veneers. Dr. Miller can work with your teen to improve the aesthetics of their smile using tooth bonding. The color matched composite resin can close small gaps between teeth, change the shape or color of a tooth that is otherwise healthy and address concerns with a minimally invasive approach.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

The tooth bonding procedure is much like a dental filling and will be completed by Dr. Miller in one visit.

The tooth (or teeth) to be treated will be prepared by gently etching the surface so that the bonding material can adhere securely and remain stable. Dr. Miller will then sculpt the composite resin into the desired shape to create a natural appearance and a comfortable bite.

Once complete, the material is sealed and polished to blend with your child’s natural smile. We will monitor the condition of the bonding material during routine visits to ensure there is no damage and the treated tooth is stable. Bonding can last for 10 or more years, maintained by good oral hygiene and dental care.
