Composite Bonding

Bonding, also referred to as bonded restoration, provides a painless solution to minor tooth repairs. During a single dental visit, several teeth can often be treated using tooth-coloured composite resin material. This composite resin is placed onto the tooth, shaped according to the desired outcome, and subsequently hardened using a special light. This innovative dental technique offers numerous benefits, such as:

  • Matching The Colour Of Your Natural Teeth.
  • Creating The Appearance Of A Missing Piece In A Chipped Tooth.
  • Building Up Teeth And Filling Gaps Between Them.
  • Restoring Broken Teeth To Their Original Size.
  • Painting Over Stained Teeth To Blend In With The Colour Of Your Other Teeth.

Before initiating the bonding procedure, our Calgary-based dentist will place a thin, clear plastic film called a matrix between the tooth requiring treatment and its adjacent tooth. This matrix serves to safeguard the surrounding teeth from the composite resin material.

A mild chemical is then applied to the tooth in question to create a slightly rough surface, facilitating the bonding of the composite resin to the tooth enamel. The composite resin material, which is carefully selected to match the natural colour of your teeth, is applied to the tooth in layers, with each layer being hardened using a special light. Once the final layer of composite resin is cured, our dentist will shape and polish it to create a natural-looking and smooth tooth. During your subsequent dental visit, your dentist will examine the bonding and make any necessary adjustments. Over time, the bonding may wear down, and your dentist may replenish the composite resin to maintain optimal results.
