Fillings are a treatment option used to restore the functionality and shape of teeth damaged by decay. When you receive a filling, our dental team will remove the decayed tooth material, clean the area and fill the cavity. This process occurs in a single appointment, allowing you to quickly and effectively improve your oral health.
A wide variety of materials can be used to fill cavities. However, the two most common types of fillings are composite and amalgam. Composite fillings contain a plastic / glass mixture and can be made to match the colour of your teeth, resulting in a natural appearance. Amalgam fillings are composed of several metallic elements, such as mercury, silver and tin, and are highly noticeable.
At Design Dentistry, we offer composite fillings to maintain the natural look of your smile. Additionally, we offer a wide selection of other amalgam-free dental treatments, such as inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges and more.
