Fillings Help Repair & Restore Your Smile

At Dentistry on Taunton in Ajax and Whitby, we’re proud to provide patients with restorative fillings that help repair damaged, decayed, or cracked teeth.

What are fillings made from, and how are they applied?

Fillings are typically made from amalgam (silver-based) materials or composite resin, which can be customized to match the colour of your natural teeth for a seamless effect. To place them, we freeze the area to ensure your comfort before removing decay from inside the tooth before filling it with amalgam or composite materials. We shape and smooth the area to ensure it feels good before a final bite check.

What benefits do fillings provide?

In addition to restoring oral function to a patient’s smile, fillings also protect teeth from further damage and decay. They also maintain a tight seal, which helps prevent bacteria and food particles from entering your tooth, and they also help support its natural structure.

Who is a good candidate for fillings?

Patients who are experiencing active decay are great candidates, as are those with a cracked or fractured tooth. If you experience pain when biting down or chewing, it may be a sign of decay that requires treatment.
