Make Teeth Look And Feel Natural Again.

In our office, dental fillings are frequently performed to repair and restore teeth, preventing painful decay or infections that may necessitate more extensive treatment. We utilize colour-matched composite resin fillings, which bond exceptionally well with the tooth and can effectively fill smaller spaces, resulting in reduced drilling requirements compared to metal (amalgam) fillings.

Why Are Fillings So Important?

The idea of getting a filling can often feel like a burdensome task. You might be tempted to postpone it or question its necessity, especially if your tooth isn’t causing any immediate discomfort. However, we highly advise you to prioritize filling your cavities as soon as possible, and here’s why:

  • Halt the progression of cavities: Fillings prevent cavities from enlarging.
  • Avoid painful infections or abscesses: By addressing cavities promptly, you can prevent the development of painful infections or abscesses.
  • Restore tooth strength and durability: Cavities weaken your teeth, but fillings restore their strength and durability.
  • Long-term cost savings: Getting cavities filled early on can save you money in the long run by preventing the need for more extensive and expensive dental treatments later.
  • Reduce sensitivity to hot and cold: Fillings help reduce tooth sensitivity to temperature changes, enhancing your comfort.
  • Preserve your natural smile: Filling cavities promptly helps preserve your natural smile for as long as possible, maintaining the aesthetics of your teeth.

How is a cavity filled?

Gentle Freezing

Before we begin, we will take the time to carefully numb your gums so we can gently freeze the area. People often feel anxious about this step. Freezing will numb your teeth and surrounding area so you barely feel a thing during the procedure.

Filling the Tooth

After we confirm that you’re comfortably frozen, your tooth is carefully cleaned and prepped. An adhesive gel is placed on the affected tooth over which a composite resin (white filling material) will be moulded and sculpted to match your contours or bite.

Curing the Composite

The composite resin material used to fill or bond your tooth is quickly cured and hardened with a special LED light. The doctor will carefully examine your finished tooth and make any required finishing touches before giving it a final polish.

The Cost Of A Filling In Nobleton

Fillings are a routine and highly effective method of preventing dental problems, and they often receive significant coverage from insurance companies. With a typical insurance plan, you can expect to pay anywhere from $0 to $100+ for fillings. For those without dental insurance, the cost can range from $120 to $300 or more, particularly if multiple fillings are required simultaneously.

When determining the actual cost of your treatment, we take several important factors into consideration:

  1. Your current oral health.
  2. The number of fillings needed.
  3. The location of the cavity in your mouth.
  4. Whether new x-rays are necessary.
  5. The amount of time required by our dental team to meet your specific needs.
  6. The equipment and supplies necessary to address all your requirements.

Promptly filling cavities is of utmost importance to us, as it effectively prevents the need for more invasive treatments, mitigates serious dental pain, and contributes to your overall happiness and well-being.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

With a normal daily brushing and flossing routine and regularly scheduled cleanings and checkups, your fillings should last well over ten years.
Fillings used to be done with an alloy called ‘dental amalgam’ and had many nicknames such as “silver” and “mercury” fillings. While there is plenty of debate over the safety of amalgam fillings, according to the Canadian Dental Association, scientific studies have not verified that dental amalgam is causing illness in the general population. So if you currently have silver fillings, don’t fear!
There are over-the-counter products available to temporarily fill a cavity or minor tooth damage until you can make it to the dentist but they are not a permanent solution and cannot replace a professional filling. A cavity is permanent tooth damage that must be cleaned, prepared and filled by a dental professional. There are severe risks to letting dental decay continue to worsen. If left untreated, cavities can lead to tooth loss and tooth abscess.
If you are experiencing severe pain that prevents you from eating or sleeping, this is considered a dental emergency and we urge you to call us right away. We can give you advice over the phone and see you as soon as possible. For temporary relief of toothache, apply a cold compress to your face over the painful area. You may be able to take the edge off your pain by taking a pain reliever like acetaminophen (ex. Tylenol) or ibuprofen (ex. Advil). Always follow the advice of your doctor and read the instructions on the bottle when taking any medication. Make a note of what medication, how much and the time it was taken so you can let us know when you come in.
