Nearly everyone gets cavities and will eventually need a filling, no matter how well they brush and floss. Genetics, diet, environment, and other risk factors all contribute to tooth decay– which over 95% of Canadians will experience at some point in their life. If you’re looking for a fix for cavities, consider a composite filling at our Annex dental office.
At Annex Dentistry, our philosophy focuses on reducing the damage done by tooth decay through early detection, and quick follow up with a safe, minimally invasive tooth colored composite filling. Minimally invasive techniques save more tooth structure than traditional fillings.
At Annex Dentistry in Toronto, our approach to composite fillings is simple. We use the latest digital x-ray and diagnostic technologies, as well as years of experience to help you understand the health of your teeth. We’ll talk with you about:
The tooth decay on any portion of your teeth
The state of your current old-fashioned, mercury (silver) fillings
Risk factors that predispose you to tooth decay
And your desire to maintain a natural, white, and healthy smile for a lifetime
You’ll learn more about the advantages of composite fillings, as well as our process for removing decay, improving the health of your teeth and restoring your smile. Additionally, we may recommend alternative treatments like crowns, inlays, or onlays, which may be the only option in cases of serious and extensive decay.
At Annex Dentistry, we offer high-tech dental care that will maximize your comfort and provide minimally invasive treatments with amazing results.
When restoring your teeth using composite fillings, here’s what you can expect:
We’ll remove tooth decay and clean the tooth surface making sure to leave as much healthy tooth structure intact as possible.
We’ll build up layers of composite filling material onto the tooth surface, each layer hardened or cured with incredibly intense beams of light. After several layers of filling material are in place and fully hardened, we’ll shape and polish the surface of the filling to match your bite and make sure it’s a perfect fit.
When done with the care and attention to detail that Annex Dentistry is known for, your new composite filling will be essentially invisible and feel completely natural.
