Restore The Natural Look And Feel Of Teeth.

At our office, dental fillings are the most frequently performed procedure. They restore and repair teeth, preventing painful decay or infection that may necessitate more extensive work. Our fillings are made of composite resin and are matched to the colour of your teeth. Unlike metal (amalgam) fillings, tooth-coloured composite resin bonds well with the tooth and can fill smaller spaces, resulting in less drilling.

Why Are Fillings So Important?

For many, the idea of getting a filling can seem like a chore, leading them to delay or question the necessity of the procedure, particularly if their tooth is not yet causing discomfort. Nevertheless, we strongly advise that you have your cavities filled as soon as possible. This is why:

  • Prevent cavities from growing larger.
  • Prevent painful infections or abscesses.
  • Save costs in the long run.
  • Restore strength and durability to weakened teeth.
  • Reduce sensitivity to hot and cold.
  • Maintain your natural smile for as long as possible.

How Is A Cavity Filled?

Gentle Freezing

Prior to starting the procedure, we will ensure to freeze your gums carefully, which will mildly numb the area. Many individuals experience anxiety during this step. Freezing will help to numb your teeth and the surrounding area, resulting in minimal discomfort during the procedure.

Filling the Tooth

Once we have confirmed that you are sufficiently numbed, we will proceed with the gentle cleaning and preparation of your affected tooth. An adhesive gel is applied to the tooth, and a composite resin (white filling material) is then moulded and sculpted to match the contours or bite of your tooth.

Curing the Composite

The composite resin material utilized to fill or bond your tooth is rapidly hardened and cured using a specialized LED light. Following this, the dentist will thoroughly inspect your tooth and perform any necessary finishing touches before giving it a final polish.

The Cost Of A Filling In Burlington

Fillings are a common and effective method of preventing dental issues, which is why most insurance companies offer substantial coverage for them. With a standard insurance plan, the cost can range from $0 to $100+. If you do not have dental insurance, you can anticipate paying anywhere from $120 to $300 or more, particularly if multiple fillings are required simultaneously.

To determine the precise cost of your treatment, we consider several significant factors:

  • Your present oral health.
  • The number of fillings required.
  • The location of the cavity in your mouth.
  • Whether new x-rays are necessary.
  • The duration of time required by the dental team to fulfill your specific requirements.
  • The equipment and supplies required to cater to all your needs.

Promptly filling cavities is of utmost importance to us as fillings are highly effective in preventing more invasive treatments, averting severe dental pain, and ensuring your maximum satisfaction and well-being.

Some common symptoms of a cavity include tooth pain, sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, visible holes or pits in the tooth, and discolouration or staining on the tooth surface.

Yes, even if your cavity does not currently cause pain, it is important to have it filled as soon as possible to prevent further decay and potential infection.

The lifespan of a filling depends on various factors such as the material used, the size of the filling, and your oral hygiene practices. Typically, fillings can last well over 10 years.
