What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure used to cover up minor flaws in your smile, such as cosmetic chipping, a misshapen tooth, or a severely stained tooth. 

The process is quite simple to understand. Dr. King will clean and prepare your tooth, then apply a strong, tooth-colored resin material directly to the tooth. Then, she will shape, harden, and sculpt this material until it looks just like a natural part of your tooth.

Dental bonding usually takes only a single appointment, and multiple teeth can be treated at once. It’s also totally non-invasive and usually doesn’t even require your mouth to be numbed.

How Long Will A Bonded Tooth Last?

The lifespan of dental bonding varies depending on its location and how well you care for the tooth. In most cases, you can expect the bonded tooth to last between 5-8 years. If the bonding is damaged or dislodged, Dr. King can simply perform another bonding procedure to restore your smile.

Is It Better To Repair A Chipped Tooth For A Child, Or To Pull It?

Pulling your child’s tooth is always a last resort. It’s almost never the right option to choose, especially for minor tooth damage like a chipped tooth. We will never recommend extraction for a child’s tooth unless there’s no way to save it or to repair it.

Dental bonding is a good option for treating minor chips in both baby teeth and adult teeth. If the damage to your child’s tooth is minor, Dr. King can treat it and restore your child’s tooth right away.

However, bonding is not usually a good option for a deeper chip or crack in the tooth. If the tooth is severely damaged, a dental crown is a better choice to cover it up and protect it. Your child may also need treatment like a pulpotomy (baby root canal) for a baby tooth, or a root canal for an adult tooth. This is done to eliminate bacteria that may have entered the tooth after it was broken. 

If your child does need an extraction, though, we’re here to help. Dr. Kimberly King offers gentle Livermore tooth extractions. We can replace extracted baby teeth with space maintainers to ensure your child’s mouth develops properly, and we also offer treatments like partial dentures, bridges, and dental implants to replace extracted adult teeth.
