Even when you eat right, drink a lot of water and brush your teeth daily, there’s still a chance for tooth decay to sneak up on you unexpectedly. Thanks to regular exams and modifying your oral hygiene plan, you can lower your risk of getting cavities. But when you do, rest assured that we use the least-invasive and most aesthetic materials available for your new dental filling.
Composite (White) Fillings
When you have a cavity, it spreads through your tooth enamel into deeper layers of your teeth or to adjacent ones. By removing it and placing a composite filling, we can repair the area that’s been damaged and stop it from expanding.
Tooth-coloured composite fillings offer many advantages over conventional metal restorations, including:
Being mercury free
Blending in with your smile’s natural colour
Less invasive to your tooth structure
Bonding capabilities that allow the material to be placed in more areas
Ideal for people of all ages
Inlay and Onlay
If your cavity is quite large, a traditional filling won’t withstand the everyday use of biting and chewing. Because inlays and onlays are larger than a filling but smaller than a dental crown, they’re ideal for repairing teeth with moderate to severe decay.
Keeping You Comfortable
Getting your first filling can make some people feel a bit anxious. Fortunately, we offer NITROUS OXIDE sedation to help you feel at ease. We’ll thoroughly numb your tooth prior to removing the cavity, so you can sit back and relax.
Dental fillings are essential for several reasons:
Preservation of Tooth Structure: Fillings prevent the spread of decay and help preserve the healthy tooth structure.
Restoration of Functionality: Fillings restore the tooth’s ability to function properly, including chewing and biting.
Prevention of Further Damage: Left untreated, cavities can worsen, leading to more extensive dental procedures such as root canals or extractions.
Aesthetic Improvement: Tooth-colored fillings enhance the appearance of your smile, especially when used on visible teeth.
