Dental Fillings in Kelowna
What is a Dental Filling?
There are several types of fillings that your dentist may use in your treatment. The most common filling material is a composite filling that most closely matches the look of your teeth. Your dentist will go over this with you before applying the filling to ensure that the best option is chosen.
If you have a cavity and need a dental filling, schedule a consultation with our dental team today.
Reasons For White Fillings:
- Chipped teeth.
- Decayed teeth.
- Closing space between two teeth.
- Cracked or broken teeth.
- Worn teeth.
How are composite fillings placed?
Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as necessary. The space will then be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared before the new filling is placed. If the decay was near the nerve of the tooth, a special medication will be applied for added protection. The composite filling will then be precisely placed, shaped, and polished, restoring your tooth to its original shape and function
It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold when composite fillings are first placed, however this will subside shortly after your tooth acclimates to the new filling.
You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
