Dental Fillings in Orangeville

Dental fillings are used to repair decayed, cracked, or broken teeth. They can be made from gold, porcelain, dental amalgam, composite resin, and ceramics. While dental amalgam was once popular, it is more noticeable in the mouth. For this reason, many people prefer composite resin, which blends in better with the natural teeth.

What Is the Filling Procedure?

The process of filling a cavity involves removing the decayed portion of the tooth and thoroughly cleaning the area. Your dentist will then apply the filling to the cavity and use a special bonding light to harden the material.

How Often Do Fillings Last?

Fillings can last for several years, but eventually, they may become loose, worn down, or break and need to be replaced. Amalgam fillings can be replaced with composite resin fillings, which are more easily matched to the natural colour of the teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing look.
