About Dental Bonding

 

For Indianapolis-area patients looking to quickly and effectively address minor smile imperfections, our dental resin bonding procedure offers an ideal solution. At Martin Dentistry, with offices in Fishers, IN, and Broadripple, Indianapolis, IN, our experienced team of cosmetic and general dentists—Dr. Matt Martin, Dr. Stephanie Martin, Dr. Lynn Marshall, and Dr. Lindsey Garrison—specialize in this procedure.

Using a composite plastic resin matched to the patient's natural teeth, we seamlessly cover issues like gaps, cracks, chips, and uneven lengths. After application and hardening with a special light, our dentists sculpt and polish the bonded teeth for a beautiful, natural-looking result.

Benefits include natural appearance, versatility, conservative treatment, and durability—lasting up to 10 years with proper care. Experience the transformative power of dental resin bonding at Martin Dentistry.

What to Expect

This treatment option is fast and painless. The dentist will begin by etching the surface layer of the tooth and applying a conditioning gel which will help ensure the resin will correctly bond to the tooth. The resin itself is matched to the existing tooth color and shaped to match the teeth near it. After that, a hardening light is used to harden the resin, and then the tooth is polished to to its final shape. This procedure is usually performed in the dentist’s office with little or no anesthesia. 

Treatment Aftercare

Patients should expect results to last for 3-10 years after this treatment. Good dental hygiene can prolong the duration, so patients are encouraged to follow a good home oral care routine and visit their dentist for regular exams and cleanings. Since dental bonding is easier to chip or stain than dental veneers, patients should avoid staining foods and drinks, quit smoking, and avoid biting hard objects. Even after the results diminish, the teeth can often be easily re-treated in order to prolong the results.
