What is Dental Bonding?

With dental bonding, your dentist uses a tooth-colored resin to rebuild the shape of a chipped, broken, or otherwise damaged front tooth. The material comes with a precise color-matching guide so we can ensure it blends flawlessly with your surrounding tooth enamel.

The composite resin used in dental bonding is made of smooth plastic and glass materials and is biocompatible, meaning it’s totally safe for your body. And once the resin has been applied to the tooth and shaped into its perfect form, the material hardens within seconds under a special UV light.

Dental bonding is:

  • Non-invasive
  • Pain-free
  • Natural looking
  • Highly customizable
  • Completed within minutes
  • Long-lasting

What’s the
Procedure Like?

To fix a tooth with dental bonding, your dentist or hygienist will clean the enamel and isolate the tooth to ensure it remains completely dry throughout the procedure. Because it’s a noninvasive, drill-free procedure, you don’t need any anesthesia for dental bonding. A special etching solution is applied to the surface of the tooth to roughen it up and encourage proper bonding between the enamel and resin.

After the tooth has been prepped, your dentist applies the resin and shapes it into its most pleasing appearance. Small adjustments are made as needed to ensure the shape fits perfectly with your unique dentition. Once everything is just as it should be, the resin is hardened under a special light.
