What are fillings?
Fillings are used to treat teeth with decay or that have been cracked.
During your appointment, our team will remove the affected portion, and replace it with a composite filling.
Our practice typically uses composite fillings because they can be made to closely resemble the colour of your natural teeth.
Why do I need fillings?
There are multiple reasons why a patient may need fillings. These can include:
- Chipped, cracked or broken teeth
- Closing space between two teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Worn teeth
What happens after the procedure?
After your procedure, our dentists will give you instructions to care for your filling. Maintaining good oral habits and regular dental visits will help prolong the life of your filling.
Composite fillings are very durable, but like other dental restorations, they may have to be replaced at some point.
