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.
