Do you feel apprehensive at the thought of having cavities filled?
We understand your worries and go out of our way to make cavity treatment smooth and painless.
Filling is a procedure that involves repairing lesions in the teeth caused by a cavity. It aims to restore the structure of the affected tooth, using a filling product to replace the deteriorated dental tissue.
Micro-abrasion is one of the techniques we use to treat cavities in their early stage. This procedure allows for quiet, pain-free treatment without the discomfort of needles or drills.
This technique is also indicated for superficial stains or enamel hypoplasia, mild fluorosis and post-orthodontic demineralisation.
Micro-abrasion is a simple technique. Its results depend directly on depth of the structural and/or colour anomaly being corrected.
We offer a variety of tooth restoration methods adapted to your needs and budget.
Avant-garde? Try the CEREC 3D system. It uses dental and computer graphics technology to design and shape restorative ceramic fillings and inlays. This procedure can be carried out in a single office visit and provides exceptional results.
Traditional? Ask for the standard amalgam or composite treatments that have proven themselves over the decades.
Amalgam (filling), a mixture of metals used to fill cavities, is a solid and durable material. This restoration treatment lasts longer and costs less than a filling made of composite resin (white filling).
Composite is excellent for small cavities and can be used to fill or reconstruct one or several teeth. The main advantage of composite fillings is that it imitates the natural colour of your teeth. While composite’s aesthetic qualities are undeniable, what makes this choice so attractive is its ability to fill small cavities, to adhere to the dental structure and to act as a thermal barrier. New forms of composite have also improved its resistance to pressure and wear.
Your dentist will consider several factors when selecting the best material for you: the size of the tooth, its location, your overall health and previous medical and dental history.
