If you have a tooth that is decaying, cracked or damaged, our team at the Orangeville Dental Centre may recommend a filling to repair your tooth and prevent further decay or damage.
Why might I need fillings?
If a tooth is decaying, damaged or cracked, it could cause pain or issues in the future. Fillings protect your teeth by removing the damaged areas and helping to prevent future decay. A new filling might be required if the existing filling is damaged or unsightly.
What types of fillings do we use?
We use composite resin bonded fillings that are similar in colour to your tooth. The colour of this material blends in naturally with your smile.
How does the fillings procedure work?
First your dentist will identify and remove the decay in your teeth. A bonding solution will be applied to the area to ensure the filling is secure. The filling composite is placed on the damaged area and a high-intensity blue light is used to harden the filling quickly. Your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the filling fits your bite.
