Modern dentistry has allowed Dentistry @ Manotick to combine beauty as well as strength when filling teeth. Restorations are close to their original strength and appearance with composite resins and other modern materials. The patient’s comfort is always the main priority of the dental team, leading to a positive experience.
Fillings (restorations) are used to replace tooth structure that is decayed. Caries can be detected through direct observation or x-rays. Fillings are also used to repair fractured, broken, or severely worn teeth.
our dentists will proceed to cavity preparation, removing any remaining decay and shaping the final cavity. The next step will be the addition of composite-resin filling material, cured (hardened) after with a curing light. The final step will be polishing the filling to adapt it smoothly to the natural shape of the tooth.
Composite fillings are very aesthetic restorations since they are available in natural shades matching tooth colours. In some cases, cavity preparation could become very large fillings and the dentist will recommend an inlay or an onlay (partial crown). These are restorations designed to replace more tooth structure and are made in a dental laboratory after the dentist has taken an impression of the preparation. The final placement of inlay or onlay will be made during a second visit at the office.
Fillings do not last forever so it is essential that you visit our dentists regularly for further examinations. Fillings can develop cracks or simply wear down due to chewing forces. The dentist monitors the integrity of your fillings during regular exams and will recommend replacing a filling if a problem is detected.
