Dental Bonding in Fairfield

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a versatile and effective procedure used to correct various dental issues in children. It involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material to the teeth, which is then hardened with a special light that bonds the material to the tooth. This technique allows Dr. Michelle Sasco to repair decayed, chipped, fractured, or discolored teeth, and even close gaps between teeth. The procedure is called "bonding" because of the way the resin adheres or bonds to the tooth. It's a popular choice for parents due to its affordability and the speed at which the transformation can be made, often in just one visit to our practice.

The Dental Bonding Treatment Process

Bonding Application

The next step is the application of the bonding material. Dr. Sasco will gently roughen the surface of the tooth and apply a conditioning liquid. This helps the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored, putty-like resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape.

Hardening and Polishing

The final step in the process is hardening the resin. Dr. Sasco will use a special light or laser to harden the material. Once the bonding is hard, she will trim, shape, and polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.

The Benefits Of Dental Bonding

Quick and Simple

One of the main benefits of dental bonding is that it's a quick and simple procedure. Most bonding procedures can be done in one office visit, without the need for anesthesia unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Dental bonding is a great way to improve the appearance of your child's teeth. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth, making it almost impossible to tell that any work has been done.

Minimal Tooth Enamel Removal

Another advantage of dental bonding is that it requires minimal tooth enamel removal compared to veneers and crowns. This makes it a more conservative treatment that preserves more of your child's natural tooth structure.
