To treat a cavity, broken, or chipped teeth, dental fillings are used to restore your teeth’s shape to their natural state. Fillings are usually made of gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, resin composite, and plastic. Depending on where the tooth is located in the patient’s mouth, white fillings may be suggested.

To place the filling, all decay is cleaned from the tooth before a dentist puts a bonding material inside of the hole. The filling is applied in thin layers, with each layer being hardened with the help of a special light. After the last layer is placed, the dentist will shape the filling to make it look and feel natural to the patient.

Old black silver or amalgam fillings can start leaking after a few years and cause decay under those fillings, eventually leading to more problems. These old silver fillings can be easily replaced with white tooth-colored fillings and make the teeth more aesthetic, functional, and long-lasting. Any fractured front or back teeth can easily be fixed with white fillings and restored to their original shape and size. The 2020 and 2021 Best Dental Office in Scarborough awards winner, Dr. Salim Kapadia Dental Centre, offers industry-leading and affordable tooth-colored dental fillings. Book an appointment today!

Dr. Kapadia was very accommodating and did a great job with my crown and fillings. The office is responsive and the cleaning services have been very helpful as well. I'd recommend him to everyone looking for a family dentist.
