A filling is used to restore your tooth back to it’s original shape and function
What do we do?
The finished result is very durable and is colour matched to your natural teeth
A filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a restoration material.
There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Dr. Michael McIntyre can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Because composite fillings are tooth coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas.
They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting beautiful smile.
How are fillings placed?
Fillings are usually placed in one appointment. Often while the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as necessary. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay is near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication may be applied for added protection. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function.
