What are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are the process of replacing a decayed tooth structure via filling materials. Dental cavities are the most common form of tooth decay. Cavities are holes or tiny openings on the hard surface (enamel) of the tooth. They form due to a few factors, such as bacteria in the mouth, constant intake of sugary beverages and snacks or inadequate brushing.

If not addressed in time, a dental cavity can lead to a serious infection, tooth deterioration or a severe toothache. Luckily, cavities can be treated via dental fillings at a reliable dental centre in Aurora.

Dentists fill the cavity with a tooth-like material that can last for years, depending on the upkeep. Dental fillings can also repair damaged or broken teeth. Bruxism, which is a tooth clenching or grinding during sleep can also damage your teeth and can be corrected by dental fillings.

Procedure

At E&E Dentistry, we make sure our patients feel at ease and are fully informed about the dental filling procedure. We first numb your gums, teeth and skin around the mouth in order to reduce discomfort during the procedure. Then, the decayed part of the tooth is scraped off and the cavity is sterilized. Next, the dentist will fill up the cavity with material and make finishing touches to the surface of the dental filling. The whole process of dental filling can be finished within a few minutes.

We provide our patients with reliable dental filling solutions in Aurora.

Types of Fillings

E&E Dentistry is an amalgam (or silver) free dental fillings office in Aurora. This is due to the Minamata Convention, an international treaty that reduces the range of products that use mercury. Thus, we do not use any Dental Amalgam during our procedures.

Once the dental filling procedure has taken place, we advise our patients to maintain good oral hygiene. Regular brushing, flossing and visits to our dental office twice a year is sufficient.

We offer high quality dentistry services in Aurora from trained and experienced dentists, who always makes sure that the patients receive high quality dental filling treatments.
