Whether your tooth is broken or has a cavity, our dental team will work to help repair it with a filling and remove any decayed portion.
What is a filling?
Fillings are used when there is decay, also known as a cavity, in a tooth. Fillings can also be used if there is a cracked or broken tooth that needs to be fixed. We also recommend replacing fillings that are damaged and need to be changed.
There are many types of filling materials available. We work closely with our patients to determine the best options for restoring their teeth.
Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are some of the commonly-used treatment options today.
Because composite fillings are tooth-coloured, they can be matched to the colour of existing teeth, because of this, may be suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
Why would I need a composite filling?
- Chipped teeth
- Closing space between two teeth
- Decayed teeth
