Fillings are used for various dental treatments, such as addressing cavities, altering the shape of a tooth, covering discoloration, closing gaps between teeth, repairing chips or fractures, and replacing old, faulty fillings. The dentist will select a high-quality white filling that matches the shade of your surrounding teeth to ensure a natural and aesthetically pleasing smile selection

Types of
Dental Fillings

Composite fillings

Composite fillings are tooth-colored restorations used to repair teeth that have been affected by decay, fractures, or minor damage. Made from a durable resin material, composite fillings blend seamlessly with natural teeth, providing a strong and aesthetically pleasing solution. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, composites require less removal of tooth structure and bond directly to the tooth, reducing the risk of future fractures. They are ideal for front teeth or visible areas where appearance is important. At Yonge Dental Care, we specialize in placing composite fillings to restore your smile’s health and beauty effectively and comfortably.

Amalgam fillings

made from a mixture of metals, including silver, mercury, and tin, amalgam fillings are known for their durability and strength, making them ideal for molars where chewing pressure is greatest.

Composite fillings

these fillings are made from a resin material that can be color-matched to your teeth, offering a more aesthetically pleasing result. Composite fillings are particularly suitable for visible teeth and areas requiring a natural appearance.

Ceramic fillings

crafted from porcelain, ceramic fillings are both durable and visually appealing. They are resistant to staining and can last for many years with proper care.

Gold fillings

although less commonly used today, gold fillings are highly durable and biocompatible, offering excellent longevity. However, they are more expensive and require multiple visits for placement.

The Filling

The process of getting a filling typically involves the following steps:

  1. Examination and diagnosis: the dentist will examine your teeth, possibly using X-rays, to determine the extent of decay or damage.
  2. Anesthesia: local anesthesia is applied to numb the affected area and ensure a comfortable procedure.
  3. Decay removal: the decayed or damaged part of the tooth is carefully removed using specialized dental tools.
  4. Filling placement: the chosen filling material is applied to the cleaned cavity. It is then shaped and polished to match the tooth’s natural contour and bite.
  5. Final adjustments: the dentist makes any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit and function.
