Composite Fillings

Fillings in SW Calgary

We all want to keep our smile looking its best, even when we have cavities and other damage to our teeth. This sometimes means getting dental procedures to repair the damage and keep our teeth in good shape without needing extractions.

One of the most common ways that dentists do this is by providing patients with fillings. Fillings are a convenient and pain-free way of restoring the form and strength of a tooth while preventing further decay and restoring functionality.

What Are Dental Fillings?

Dental fillings are a dental restoration procedure that restores the shape and structure of a tooth that has been weakened by decay, such as cavities. Fillings can also be used for structural support of dental applications such as implants.

The actual filling is usually a composite tooth-colored material that is injected into weakened or damaged spots in a tooth in order to restore the shape and integrity of the tooth. This is done for a number of reasons.

Throughout time, dental fillings in Calgary have been made from a variety of materials, including silver, and the durability of each filling was different. Fillings today are made from dental-grade materials so that they are not only safe to be used for teeth but so that they last as long as possible when eating and drinking and daily wear and tear.

Fillings are also quite durable; in many cases, they can last up to 10 years. While fillings will eventually need to be replaced, they are an important part of preserving the structure of your teeth and can be seen as the first option to prevent further damage to a tooth that has had holes made in it due to cavities and decay. The process is relatively painless and quick, so there’s no worry about recovery time and excessive pain.
