What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure used to enhance your smile and improve your oral health. The process involves applying a tooth-colored resin to the tooth and hardening it with a special light, allowing us to reshape or repair your tooth. With dental bonding, Dr. Jessica Barton at Harmony Dentistry in Westfield, IN, can correct imperfections such as gaps, chips, and discolorations.

How it works: The Dental Bonding Process

Dental bonding requires little to no preparation. Dr. Barton will use a shade guide to select a composite resin color that closely matches your natural teeth.

The surface of the tooth is roughened and a conditioning liquid is applied. This helps the bonding material adhere. Then, the tooth-colored, putty-like resin is applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape.

An ultraviolet light or laser is used to harden the resin. Once the resin is hardened, Dr. Barton will further trim, shape, and polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.
