Fillings

A filling is a way to restore a damaged tooth back to its normal function and shape. There are a number of different types of fillings including gold, porcelain and silver. One of our dentists will help to determine the best filling for you, based on the extend of the repair and whether you have allergies to certain materials.

When would I need to get a filling?

During your check-up one of our dentists will examine the surface of each tooth, this will help detect for any cavities that need to be filled. Our dentist may recommend further examination and an x-ray to better determine the best treatment for you.

What does the procedure involve?

If a tooth cavity needs to be filled, our dentist will first remove the decay and clean the affected area. The cleaned cavity will then be filled with the chosen material. Depending on the extend of the cavity, this procedure could last anywhere between 20 minutes to an hour.
