Tooth Bonding Palmdale & Lancaster, CA

Tooth Bonding An Overview

Tooth bonding is a quick, effective solution used to address a variety of cosmetic and restorative dental concerns. When a tooth is damaged, your dentist may recommend tooth bonding to help restore beauty and function to your smile. Bonding is an effective treatment for both adults and children who have sustained tooth damage. Common reasons for bonding can include:

  • Chipped or damaged teeth
  • Cracked or fractured teeth
  • Address gapped teeth
  • To repair cosmetic blemishes on the teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Decayed teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth

The bonding procedure can typically be completed in just one visit to our office. To some, tooth bonding is seen as the less expensive alternative to porcelain veneers. Although bonding can address some of the same dental concerns as veneers, they are often seen as a temporary solution, making them the ideal solution for young patients with growing teeth.

Dental Bonding For Children

When your child sustains tooth damage, it is important to explore all your options. Dental bonding is the most common treatment because it requires very minimal preparation and is often considered the easiest and least invasive way to address a growing smile.

Once the permanent teeth have erupted and growth is completed, your child may opt for a more permanent restoration such as porcelain veneers or a crown may be necessary.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

As noted, the bonding procedure can be completed in one visit to our dental office. The tooth (or teeth) are carefully etched and prepared for bonding. Your Smile Dental Group dentist will gently sculpt the tooth-colored resin material onto the tooth and shape it until the desired shape is reached.

The bonded surface is checked for a proper bite and even match. Once approved, the teeth are sealed and polished to reveal a natural, beautiful smile. With proper care and maintenance, a bonded tooth can last many years. We will check the progress of your teeth during routine dental care visits and work with you if you desire a more permanent solution, such as a dental crown or porcelain veneer, in the future.
