Your Smile, Our Priority: Top-Notch Dental Fillings in Scarborough

Mercury-Free, White Fillings for a Radiant Smile

In modern dentistry, we believe that your smile should be a perfect blend of beauty and strength. Our dental team is committed to ensuring your comfort while delivering top-notch restorations that closely match your teeth's natural strength and appearance. At our dental practice in Scarborough, we prioritize your well-being, guaranteeing a positive experience every step of the way.

Why Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings, also known as restorations, play a crucial role in maintaining your oral health. They are employed to replace tooth structure that has been compromised by decay, fractures, breakages, or severe wear and tear. Whether the issue is identified through direct observation or X-rays, we are here to provide the care you need.

The Process at our Scarborough Office:

  1. Cavity Preparation: To restore your tooth's health, our skilled dentists will meticulously prepare the cavity. This involves removing any remaining decay and shaping the final cavity to ensure a precise fit for the filling.
  2. Composite-Resin Filling: We utilize composite-resin filling materials that closely match the natural shade of your teeth. After placement, the material is cured (hardened) using a specialized curing light for optimal durability and appearance.
  3. Polishing: The final step involves polishing the filling to seamlessly adapt it to the natural shape of your tooth, creating a flawless finish.

Aesthetic Excellence:

Our composite fillings are renowned for their aesthetic appeal. Available in natural shades that match your tooth color, they are not only strong and durable but also seamlessly blend in with your smile. Patients of all ages tolerate them perfectly, ensuring a harmonious, natural look.

Going the Extra Mile: Inlays and Onlays

In some cases, larger cavities may require more extensive care. In such instances, our dentists may recommend inlays or onlays, which are partial crowns designed to replace a more significant portion of tooth structure. These restorations are crafted in a dental laboratory, following an impression taken by our dentist. The final placement of an inlay or onlay will be completed in a second visit to our dental office.

Regular Maintenance:

It's important to note that fillings, like any dental work, have a lifespan. They may develop cracks or wear down over time due to the forces of chewing. To ensure your dental fillings stay in optimal condition, regular visits to the dentist are essential. Our team will monitor the integrity of your fillings during routine exams and recommend replacements if any issues are detected.

Emergency Care for Fillings:

In times of dental emergencies, including the need for immediate dental fillings, we are here to provide rapid assistance. Your oral health is our top priority, and our team is equipped to handle unexpected situations.

At our Scarborough dental practice, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality dental fillings that combine strength, aesthetics, and patient comfort. Your radiant smile and oral health are our top priorities. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and take the first step towards a beautiful, healthy smile.
