What are bonded fillings?

Bonded fillings are a type of restorative dental treatment, intended to restore the health of your teeth and its appearance. It’s a procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin material is applied to the decayed tooth and hardened using a special UV light. This ultimately "bonds" the material to the tooth to restore or improve a person's smile.

Our dentists, Dr. Gill and Dr. Schnepf will perform a dental checkup in St. Albert first before performing any procedures on you. They’ll look for the following symptoms, which indicate you may need bonded fillings: 

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Flossing string tears
  • Damage to a previous filling
  • A chipped or fractured tooth

Why are bonded fillings done?

Bonded fillings are a great way to fix your smile and restore the health of your teeth. It fills gaps between your teeth, repairs broken or chipped teeth, removes decay and fills in cavities, creating a uniform tooth surface. 


Modern bonded fillings are made out of a resin that is durable yet natural-looking. They are also malleable which allows for precise customization in terms of shape and colour in order to fit each patient’s specific dental needs. The procedure is most often very quick and painless, and can typically be completed within one visit. They’re affordable and strong.
