Composite Bonding for Chipped, Cracked, or Damaged Teeth

Cosmetic Composite Build Ups Can Change Your Child’s Smile

Dental bonding can improve the appearance of chipped, cracked, or cavity-damaged teeth to help a child feel better about themselves, and it can also eliminate pain from unfilled cavities! Placing composite build ups is a minor cosmetic procedure designed to fix small dental imperfections. The bonding material is a composite resin that blends with the surrounding teeth.

How Does the Procedure Work?

After a dental examination to locate any oral health issues like cavities or decay, Dr. Manske identifies the teeth that will benefit from tooth bonding. Depending on the situation, local anesthesia may be needed for the procedure to ensure your child’s comfort. The dentist will prepare the teeth in question, mix and carefully apply the resin, and properly shape it. The composite will then be cured (or hardened) with a UV light, before getting its final smoothing for the finished look. The final result should last from three to seven years.
