Dental Fillings in Brampton

When tooth decay leads to cavities, our dentists try to catch it as soon as possible in a dental examination. Dental fillings are commonly recommended to repair the damage from tooth decay and prevent further decay from affecting the hard and soft tissue of the teeth. Our dentists can provide strong fillings for patients with new cavities, as well as replacements for patients with old or missing fillings.

Composite & Amalgam Fillings

Our dentists can create dental fillings from several materials. We typically recommend composite fillings for areas of the mouth that are highly visible. Composite resin can be matched to the colour and translucency of the teeth, ensuring a cosmetically appealing and durable restoration. Meanwhile, amalgam fillings are one of the most common dental materials used for filling cavities because of the durability of the silver amalgam material. Most fillings will last about 10-12 years before requiring replacement; ask us whether your fillings need to be replaced at your next appointment.

Dental Filling Procedures

We always aim to keep you as comfortable as possible during your dental appointment. If you are having fillings placed, you’ll be provided with a local anesthetic to numb the region of the mouth we will be working on. Throughout the procedure, we’ll check in to make sure you are still fully numb and provide you with additional anesthetic if necessary.

Inlays and Onlays in Brampton

When your tooth is weakened or has a large cavity, a dental filling may not be sufficient to restore the tooth. In these cases, our dentists may recommend having a custom-designed inlay or onlay that adds more structure to the tooth. Inlays fit between the cusps or ridges of the molars and premolars, while onlays include one or more of the cusps.

Finding the Best Fit for Your Dental Needs

When a full tooth restoration such as a dental crown isn’t necessary but a dental filling won’t fully repair the damage, our dentists may recommend inlays and onlays as the perfect fit for your restoration. Like a dental crown, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory to be fitted over the tooth. However, instead of covering the tooth from the chewing surface down to the gum line, these partial restorations fit only over the top portion of the tooth.

Partial Dental Restorations

Our experienced dental team is here to make sure you get customized restorations that will support your long-term oral health. If your tooth structure is at risk, an inlay or onlay can provide additional strength and protection to fully repair the tooth and leave you with a restored bite.
