Dental Bonding in Killeen
Restores Young Patient's Teeth
How Does Dental Bonding Work?
Dental bonding usually only takes a single appointment, and its conservative nature is a great choice for younger smiles. First, one of our skilled dentists will place the lifelike composite resin material directly onto the affected tooth. This material is flexible and like putty when we first apply it, which means we’re able to sculpt it into a pleasing, natural-looking shape that hides the offending imperfection. Then, we use a curing light to harden it in place, and that’s it! This procedure also hardly requires any tooth preparation and is very comfortable, which is good news for your loved one.
Our dentists may recommend pediatric dental bonding for the following reasons:
- To close gaps and/or spaces between teeth
- To correct stubborn staining or enamel discoloration
- To fill in chips/cracks
- To correct teeth that are noticeably misshapen
We will be sure to use the shade of composite resin that most closely matches your son or daughter’s existing smile.
