Achieve A Healthier Smile With Dental Fillings
A reliable and effective procedure that protects and supports teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma, at Dr. Sherman Ki & Associates in Oshawa, we know that fillings can help preserve our patients’ smiles.
How are fillings placed?
Our dentist will first numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic. Then, they will remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth. Once the tooth is cleaned out, a filling material (composite or amalgam) will be placed and shaped to match the natural contours of the tooth. Finally, the filling will be smoothed and your bite will be checked to ensure it looks and feels great.
What issues do fillings address?
Dental fillings can address various dental issues, including cavities, chipped or broken teeth, and worn-down teeth. They can also be used to fill in gaps between teeth or to reshape teeth that are misshapen or uneven.
What advantages do they provide?
One of the main benefits of fillings is that they can help prevent further damage to the tooth. If left untreated, decay or damage can progress and eventually cause tooth loss. Composite (white) fillings can also improve the tooth’s appearance by filling in unwanted gaps or chips, and because they can be matched to the colour of your surrounding teeth, they look virtually invisible.
