Fillings Artarmon

Woman with beautiful smile wearing yellow shirtAt Artarmon Dentists, our goal is to provide the quality dental services you need at one location. With our wealth of options, you won’t have to worry about going to multiple offices to complete your dental care. We welcome all ages, from children to adults. One common dental issue that can plague you through any stage of life is tooth decay.

Tooth decay is caused by bacteria in your mouth that feed off the food and drink you take in. They use it to create an acid, which can wear down your teeth and create a hole. These holes are called cavities.

Getting Rid of Your Pain

Did you know that your tooth is the only tissue in your body that can’t heal itself? Teeth are exposed to wear and tear every day. Over the years, advancements in dentistry have allowed options to address problems in your teeth that occur. If you have pain, it may be due to a cavity in the tooth. Though it needs to be addressed, this common oral health concern is easily taken care of.

Same-Day Dental Emergencies Welcome

Many people wake up one morning with a sudden pain in their tooth. Others have been trying to ignore their discomfort for some time before deciding they simply can’t stand it anymore. If you find yourself in such a situation, know that you can contact our practice straightaway and we’ll work you into our schedule. We are pleased to accept all types of dental emergencies. We’ll also advise you on what you can do to ease your pain before you get in for your appointment.

We typically use modern, white materials for our fillings. They are aesthetically pleasing, made to match your natural teeth. You’ll hardly be able to tell it’s there. There are a few options to choose from for your filling. Our dentists will be pleased to detail each one to you.

  • Composite Resin Composite resin is colour-matched to your existing teeth. Placed in layers, each one is cured with a UV light to harden it as it bonds to your tooth. In the final step, your filling is sculpted to match the shape of your natural tooth anatomy. A composite filling is ideal in addressing small cavities or other aesthetic blemishes that can affect your teeth.
  • Porcelain Fillings: We offer some of the latest technology within dentistry. A 3D scan of your affected tooth can be taken with our special laser. Then, we can create a porcelain filling from it. Your filling is fitted in place with strong bonding materials. These fillings are durable and produce an aesthetically pleasing result.

Do you have an old, silver filling in your mouth? They used to be the standard of treatment to address tooth decay. As time went by, advancements in the dental field were made. White fillings have replaced the silver amalgam fillings as the new standard. Our patients enjoy that we can take out their older amalgam fillings.

There has been concern in recent years over the safety of silver amalgam fillings. Furthermore, they are noticeable to others and you may feel self-conscious about people seeing your fillings. If this is the case, we can replace your filling with a non-amalgam filling such as composite resin or porcelain. You may also have the option to convert your amalgam filling into a dental crown.

Same-Day Crowns Available

If you choose to replace your amalgam filling with a dental crown, you’ll love having it taken care of on the day with us. We have CEREC technology, which is an advanced machine that creates crowns straightaway. You won’t have to return to our practice for a follow-up visit. We’ll design and mill your crown while you’re right there in the office, then fit it onto your tooth.
