What is dental bonding?

We use a soft and pliable composite resin to repair minor chips and cracks on your teeth. The resin is placed, set, and hardened so that it chemically bonds with your existing tooth.

How does dental
bonding work?

With the modern advancements of dental bonding, we can repair your damaged tooth in one short visit. Here’s how the simple process works…


We begin by selecting a shade that perfectly matches your natural tooth color. The goal is to provide a solution that fits naturally into your existing smile.


Next, we clean and prepare the tooth with materials designed to ensure the bonding materials adhere to your tooth.


The matching composite resin is then applied, carefully shaped, and polished.


Finally, we use an ultraviolet light to dry and harden the resin, following it up with any necessary refinements to achieve beautiful results.

One visit is all it takes to restore your tooth’s appearance. The entire process typically takes less than an hour from beginning to end.


Unless a cavity is being filled with bonding, the treatment is minimally invasive and does not require anesthesia. The only preparation you need is to make an appointment.

Enamel Preserved

Unlike other more involved restorative treatments, there is very little to no removal of tooth enamel. We simply prepare the surface of the tooth to ensure the composite resin will firmly adhere during the subsequent hardening phase.


If the procedure was performed by a dentist with clinical expertise in this discipline, like Dr. Ratra, dental bonding has a high rate of success. Although it is not permanent, with proper care dental bonding can last several years.


The composite resin chemically bonds with the repaired tooth to create a strong and stable solution. However, we only use dental bonding to treat minor tooth repairs. More extensive issues require more involved restorative treatment options.


When it comes to restoring your tooth’s appearance, dental bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic solutions in dentistry.
