Tooth Colored Bonded Fillings in Calgary, Alberta
The nature of bonded fillings is evident from its name; it is to bond with the surface of the tooth. Tooth decay can claim the strength of the tooth surface which can cause breakage or chipping of the tooth enamel. Broken tooth and cavities caused due to decay attract disease causing germs and hamper the overall health of the tooth. To stop germs from entering the interiors of the tooth and to prevent further damage to the enamel, the chipped surface is covered by a filling.
Bonded fillings perform the job of effectively covering and repairing the decayed part by bonding with the enamel, creating a stable shield. The process of dental bonding involves a few steps, beginning with the removal of the debris or accumulated tartar. After that a gel is applied to the surface to facilitate bonding of the composite to be used as a filling. Once the composite is applied to the gel, it is hardened using a special light to complete the process.
The benefits of using white composite fillings is that it is hardly noticeable because of the enamel like color and it is flexible enough to achieve an exact fit.
