What Are Fillings?

We use tooth-colored fillings to restore teeth affected by decay, cracks, or fractures. The advanced composite material we use for fillings is specially designed to blend in with the natural color and texture of your teeth. This innovative material is soft and easy to work with at first, making it simple to restore cavities, cracks, and chips of various sizes and shapes. We then harden the filling using a special light and retouch it as needed to ensure your teeth have the proper bite relationships and feel comfortable.

Do I Need a Tooth-Colored Filling?

The most common reason people receive fillings is cavities, pockets of decay that weaken a tooth. As our dental team performs your routine checkups, we may notice that a tooth has decayed to the point where we need to intervene to protect your long-term oral health.

We examine and consider your oral health and your aesthetic goals when recommending tooth-colored fillings rather than other restorative options. Some common scenarios where a tooth-colored filling might be the ideal solution include:

  • Decay: When you have a cavity, a filling is often an excellent choice for restoring your tooth.
  • Damage: For teeth that have chipped or cracked due to accidents or wear, fillings offer a simple, effective, and durable method for strengthening and protecting them.
  • After Root Canal Therapy: Depending on the specifics of your root canal treatment, a tooth-colored filling may be sufficient to reinforce your tooth.

Our goal when recommending a treatment is to consider its effectiveness, longevity, and how well it preserves your natural tooth. While fillings are highly effective and versatile, we may recommend alternatives depending on the location and extent of your issue. We offer extensive restorative services, including dental crowns, and are happy to discuss other ways to strengthen and protect your problem tooth or teeth.

Caring for Teeth With Fillings

Caring for teeth with tooth-colored fillings is simple and essentially identical to caring for the rest of your untreated teeth. However, it's always important to be watchful of teeth with restorations and contact our office if you notice any issues, like a toothache or sensitivity.

Like natural teeth, tooth-colored fillings require consistent home oral hygiene to preserve their function and appearance. It's also important to keep up your usual dental visits twice a year so we can monitor your restorations and ensure that your fillings are in great condition.

Markham Tooth-Colored Filling FAQs

We always encourage you to ask questions and voice concerns about your dental procedures, including tooth-colored fillings. Keeping you well-informed about your treatment options and overall dental care plan is key to helping you feel engaged and satisfied with your oral health. Some of the issues often raised by our patients include:

Can children receive fillings for baby teeth?
Yes, fillings can be critical in preserving a child's smile and safeguarding their future oral health, allowing us to halt decay in a baby tooth before it spreads or requires an early extraction.

What's the difference between a direct and indirect filling?
Direct fillings refer to fillings created directly within the affected tooth. Our tooth-colored fillings are direct fillings, and we generally complete the entire process in as little as one visit. Indirect fillings refer to restorations created outside the affected tooth, often using metal or other materials.

Do tooth-colored fillings respond to whitening?
No. Tooth-colored fillings do not respond to whitening. However, they are also highly stain resistant and won't discolor over time. If you're planning on whitening your teeth with us, we're happy to discuss how we can match the shade of your filling to your desired shade.
