Dental Fillings in Mississauga
Dental fillings are used to repair cavities in teeth caused by tooth decay. The best method for preventing cavities is brushing twice a day and flossing daily, combined with regular professional dental hygiene appointments. But sometimes, even with the best care, cavities form and fillings are required. It’s always best to treat a small cavity rather than to let the problem grow and require a more complex treatment.
Fillings that Look Natural
Amalgam (metal mixture) and composite resin (looks like natural teeth) are commonly used in dental fillings. Both options provide a strong, long-lasting surface for the tooth. Which material our dentists use depends on the location of the filling in your mouth, your dental coverage, and your personal preference. We will always provide you with all of your options and the reasons you might choose one over the other so you can make an informed decision.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Before a filling procedure begins, we’ll use a local anesthetic to ensure you feel comfortable and are without pain throughout the duration of the procedure. The cavity is then treated to prevent further decay and filled in with your chosen material. We can often work on several cavities at once for your convenience and to lower overall costs.
