Our team at 5000 Yonge Dental will work to repair a broken or decaying tooth with a filling and remove any decayed portion. Let us help!
What is a filling?
Fillings are used when there is decay, also called a cavity, in a tooth. Fillings can also be used if there is a cracked or broken tooth that needs to be fixed. We also recommend replacing fillings that are damaged and need to be changed. Our dentists can perform fillings to keep your mouth healthy.
There are many types of filling materials available. We work closely with our patients to determine the best options for restoring teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today.
Because composite fillings are tooth coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth, and are aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
Why would I need a composite filling?
You may require a composite filling if you're experiencing the following:
- Chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Closing space between teeth
- Worn teeth
