Tooth-Colored Composite Restorations

Richmond Dental is your go-to dental clinic in Calgary for bonded fillings. A bonded filling is a conservative way to repair mildly chipped, discolored, and even crooked teeth. Richmond Dental take bonding seriously and our dentists offer the materials to ensure the cosmetic look and feel of your finished tooth is the one you desire.

Dental bonding is a white, or tooth coloured, filling placed on your tooth to improve its appearance. Much the same as a porcelain veneer, the filling adheres to your tooth using a composite resin. While bonding is less expensive, and arguably less durable than other cosmetic treatment options, it is also usually completed in one visit. Our dentists in Calgary are happy to provide you with all the options to fit your desired outcome and your budget.

If you’re looking to repair a chipped, fractured, decaying tooth, or even wish to close a minor gap between your teeth then bonding might be the option for you. Composite fillings are preferred by many patients when they are searching for cosmetic dentistry in Calgary. Bonding may also be a suitable alternative to an amalgam based filling. Give us a call 403-246-2131 to discuss your options.

Teeth bonding in Calgary is a simple procedure where a resin material is matched to be the same colour as your teeth, applied to the tooth, and then hardened under an ultraviolet light to officially “bond” the material to your tooth. It requires minimal prep and anesthesia is often not necessary.

Good oral hygiene practice is all you need to maintain your newly bonded teeth. You should avoid chewing on pens or biting your nails to preserve the filling. The bonded filling can last up to ten years before requiring a touch up or full replacement. You should ask your insurance provider to see how much of the cost they will cover.
