Composite (tooth colored) or white fillings are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay back to their natural shape and healthy oral function. When you come in for your filling appointment, Dr. Magathan or any of our other qualified dentists will first remove the unwanted decay in your tooth, clean the damaged area, and then insert the filling material into your cavity. Fillings and cavity treatment are a common dental procedure we at Magathan Dental Centre have had years of experience with, so you’re definitely in good hands!
Fillings allow us to close off spaces in your tooth where bacteria can seep in and possibly cause an oral infection. The filling also prevents any further decay or pain. These fillings, which are made of composite resin, are placed directly inside your cleaned-out cavity where they harden and bond to your recovering natural tooth.
Composite fillings can maintain their strength and protect your tooth by upholding any pressure exerted inside your mouth from eating or chewing. The biggest upside is that your natural tooth can be salvaged should you decide on this treatment option; no extensive treatment or tooth replacement is necessary! This dental treatment option also allows your smile to stay as natural-looking as possible seeing as filling color is matched to the color of natural teeth, making them aesthetically identical.
Here are some cases you may need to consider Composite Fillings as treatment for:
