Dental Fillings Etobicoke

Fillings are dental procedures utilized to restore lost tooth structure and address issues such as decay, cracks, or wear on teeth. Advanced dental techniques now allow for the use of materials that closely resemble natural teeth, resulting in restorations that are nearly indistinguishable from the original tooth in terms of strength and appearance.

Tooth-colored Composite Restorations

Modern fillings are mercury-free composite fillings that match the color of your teeth. These fillings:

  • Can be bonded directly to your enamel
  • Require less tooth preparation
  • Are smaller than traditional metal fillings
  • Provide a more seamless match with your tooth enamel

Dental Filling Procedure and Maintenance

Cavity Preparation

The dentist begins by removing any remaining decay and shaping the final cavity.

Composite Resin Filling Material

The next step involves adding composite-resin filling material, which is then cured (hardened) with a curing light. Finally, the filling is polished to adapt smoothly to the natural shape of the tooth.

Inlays and Onlays

In cases where the cavity preparation is extensive, the dentist may recommend an inlay or onlay (partial crown) instead of a filling. This restoration procedure replaces more tooth structure than a normal filling. An impression is made, and the inlay or onlay is prepared in a dental laboratory. The final placement occurs during a second visit to Village Dental.

Regular Check-ups

Fillings have a finite lifespan, so it's important to visit us regularly for scheduled check-ups. Fillings can develop cracks or wear down due to chewing forces. During regular exams, the dentist monitors the integrity of your fillings and recommends replacement if any issues are detected.
