When you require a filling in either a front or back tooth, composite resins, also known as tooth-coloured fillings can provide the affected tooth with durability and resistance against fractures and can withstand reasonable pressure from the stress of chewing. Patients who prefer a more natural-looking filling that blends with their smile, opt for tooth-coloured fillings. When you develop a cavity or need to repair a damaged tooth, we are happy to offer composite fillings in Saskatoon at our dental office.
Composite Fillings Near You
If your tooth has suffered decay, cracks, or fractures, our dentist can remove the decayed or affected portion and use a tooth-coloured filling to fill the area. While there are various types of dental filling materials available, composite-fillings can be carefully matched to the colour of neighbouring teeth and are a much more aesthetically pleasing option for front teeth or teeth that are visible. Note that, composite fillings are not considered a permanent restoration and as with most restorations, composite fillings will need to be replaced someday. With that said, they are highly durable and will last for many years, offering you a long-lasting and beautiful smile.
When are Composite Fillings Needed?
Patients may visit our dentist to receive composite fillings in Saskatoon when they have:
- Chipped teeth: It is not unusual for your teeth to chip over time.
- Gaps between teeth: You may have a gap between two teeth due to genetic factors.
- Cracked or broken teeth: Teeth are strong, but they are not indestructible and can break.
- Decayed teeth: Not only is decay unsightly, but it can also lead to bad breath.
- Worn down teeth: Overtime your teeth can wear down.
How are Composite Fillings Placed?
If you are visiting our dental office for composite fillings near you, typically your restoration will be placed in one visit. Once your tooth is numbed, our dentist will remove any decay, clean the space thoroughly, and carefully prepare it before placing the composite filling. Next, the composite filling is precisely placed. Lastly, our dentist will shape and polish it.
