Restore The Natural Look and Feel of your Teeth.
At our dental practice, we restore and repair teeth through the widely recognized procedure of dental fillings. Our preferred choice is composite resin fillings, colour-matched to your teeth, which bond seamlessly and require minimal drilling for smaller spaces. This approach provides a natural look and feel, while maintaining tooth strength and function and preventing decay or infection. Our top priority is providing comfortable, minimally invasive, and effective high-quality dental care to our patients. Trust us to restore your smile with our state-of-the-art composite fillings.
What makes fillings necessary?
- Dental fillings are essential for repairing and restoring teeth that have been damaged due to decay or injury.
- Without fillings, cavities can worsen and lead to more significant dental problems such as infections, abscesses, and even tooth loss.
- By getting fillings, you can prevent further damage to your teeth and maintain their strength and function, allowing you to chew and speak comfortably.
- Composite resin fillings, which match the natural colour of your teeth, provide a seamless look and feel, improving your smile’s appearance and boosting your self-confidence.
- Dental fillings are a minimally invasive and cost-effective solution for restoring damaged teeth, with a success rate of over 90%.
In summary, dental fillings are crucial for repairing and restoring teeth, preventing further damage, and maintaining their strength and function. With composite resin fillings, you can also enjoy a natural-looking smile while benefiting from a minimally invasive and cost-effective solution. It’s important to consult with your dentist regularly to identify any dental problems early on and receive the necessary treatments to maintain optimal oral health.
The Typical Process of Filling a Cavity.
At our practice, we prioritize your comfort during the cavity filling process. Before we start, we take the time to carefully numb your gums to ensure a painless experience. We understand that this step can make some patients feel anxious, but it’s an important part of the process. Our gentle freezing technique numbs the area around your tooth, including the surrounding tissues, to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Rest assured that we’ll do everything we can to ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible.
Filling the Cavity
Once we have ensured your comfort during the numbing process, we proceed to carefully clean and prepare your tooth for the filling. An adhesive gel is then applied to the affected tooth, and we mold and sculpt a composite resin (white filling material) to match the contours and bite of your tooth.
Curing the Composite
To harden the composite resin material used for filling or bonding your tooth, we use a special LED light that quickly cures and sets the material. After that, the dentist will thoroughly examine your tooth, making any necessary finishing touches to the shape, before giving it a final polish to achieve a natural and seamless look.
What is the Cost of a Dental Filling in Aurora?
Dental fillings are a common and effective way to prevent dental problems, and most insurance companies provide significant coverage for them. The cost of a filling typically ranges from $0 to $100+ with a typical insurance plan. If you don’t have dental insurance, the cost can range from $120 to $300 and up, especially if multiple fillings are required at once.
When determining the actual cost of your treatment, we take into account several factors, including your current oral health, the number of fillings needed, the location of the cavity, the need for any new x-rays, and the amount of time required to meet your specific needs. Additionally, we consider the equipment and supplies needed to provide comprehensive dental care.
At our practice, we prioritize filling cavities promptly to prevent the need for more invasive treatments and to avoid serious dental pain. Our goal is to keep you happy and healthy by providing the highest quality dental care.
