In kids, dental bonding helps repair broken teeth because it is a less invasive treatment. Dental bonding is also given the name “composite bonding” since it often involves the use of composite resin. Our dentist applies composite resin to the surface of the kid's natural tooth to improve its appearance. Additionally, dental bonding is widely used in repairing teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken when taking part in sports or other activities.
How is Dental Bonding Beneficial?
Dental bonding is pretty a simple procedure that improves the look of a child's teeth. Besides, it is less invasive when used to repair chips and cracks in the teeth. So there is no need for using sedation. Dental bonding is also a cost-effective treatment that offers comparable benefits to expensive treatments. It is less costly than crowns and veneers, making it an excellent option for kids. On top of that, some dental insurance cover the cost of bonding, primarily when performed to treat dental cavity or for structural reasons.
Moreover, dental bonding offers a quick solution to teeth problems in kids. Busy parents find this treatment a good choice for the kids because the procedure takes just around 30 to 60 minutes. So parents can get to our pediatric office and get back to their daily routine quickly.
Repairs that dental bonding provides do not last as crowns or veneers do; however, they make a perfect option for kids' milk teeth. The treatment addresses issues such as decay while maintaining the baby teeth' look until they fall out.
It is crucial that you keep your children's baby teeth healthy until that time they fall out. Baby teeth hold space for the kid's permanent teeth that come behind them. If baby teeth fall out prematurely, other baby teeth may shift to take up the spot, often causing issues with the permanent tooth during the time of eruption. Reach out to our pediatric office if you want to know more about dental bonding or need it done for your kid.
