At Kerhoulas Dental in Mississauga we understand that a healthy smile is important to you. Our team might recommend a dental filling as an option to treat cavities and help you maintain your oral health.
Why might I need fillings?
Fillings are recommended for treating teeth with dental decay. Fillings are also recommended for teeth that have been cracked or damaged or to replace an existing filling that is damaged or old.
What types of fillings do we use?
We use bonded fillings made of a composite resin that is similar in colour to your tooth. We use this material so that it blends naturally with your smile.
How does the fillings procedure work?
Your dentist will first identify and remove the decay in your teeth. Next, they will apply a bonding solution to the area and add the composite filling material. A high-intensity blue light is used to harden the filling in only a few seconds.
Your dentist will then check to ensure the filling’s shape fits your bite and will make any necessary adjustments.
