Restore The Natural Look And Feel Of Your Teeth.

At our office, dental fillings are the most frequently performed procedure. They effectively repair and restore teeth while also preventing painful decay or infection that may necessitate more extensive treatments. We utilize colour-matched composite resin fillings, which have significant advantages over traditional metal (amalgam) fillings. Tooth-coloured composite resin forms a strong bond with the tooth and can fill even tiny spaces, resulting in minimal drilling requirements.

What Makes Fillings Crucial For Dental Care?

While getting a filling may seem like a hassle to some, it is crucial not to delay or question its necessity, even if your tooth isn’t causing pain (yet). Here are compelling reasons why we strongly advise you to have your cavities filled without delay:

  • Halt the growth of cavities, preventing them from worsening.
  • Safeguard against painful infections or abscesses.
  • Fillings restore strength and durability to weakened teeth.
  • Long-term cost savings by addressing the issue promptly.
  • Decrease sensitivity to hot and cold sensations.
  • Preserve your natural smile for as long as possible.

How Is A Cavity Filled?

Gentle Freezing

Before we begin, we’ll numb your gums to gently freeze the area. This step may cause some anxiety in some patients, but the anesthesia will ensure you feel little to no discomfort during the procedure.

Filling the Tooth

Once we ensure that you are comfortably numb, we proceed by meticulously cleaning and preparing your tooth. An adhesive gel is then applied to the affected tooth, serving as a foundation for the application of composite resin (white filling material). The resin is skillfully moulded and sculpted to match the contours and bite of your tooth.

Curing the Composite

To solidify and strengthen the composite resin used for filling or bonding your tooth, a special LED light is used to rapidly cure and harden the material. Subsequently, the dentist thoroughly inspects the treated tooth, making any necessary adjustments, and concludes the process by providing a final polish for a refined appearance.

The Cost Of A Filling In Ajax

Fillings are considered routine and highly effective in preventing dental issues, leading to significant coverage from most insurance companies. With typical insurance plans, costs can range from $0 to $100+ for fillings. For individuals without dental insurance, expenses can vary from $120 to $300 and beyond, particularly for multiple fillings.

When determining the precise cost of your treatment, several crucial factors are taken into account:

  • Your current oral health.
  • Number of fillings required.
  • Location of the cavity in your mouth.
  • Necessity for new x-rays.
  • Time needed by the dental team to cater to your specific needs.
  • Equipment and supplies necessary for comprehensive care.

Promptly addressing cavities is of utmost importance to us as fillings are highly effective in preventing more invasive treatments, minimizing dental pain, and promoting your overall happiness and well-being.

    I’ve been going to this dentist for over 5 years and the staff have always been very time efficient and kind. My appointment is always at the scheduled time and doesn’t take excessively long. They also make sure to take care of me without causing too much pain which I appreciate after passing through the hands of many rough dentist offices. I highly recommend, especially if you live in the area.

    The clinic was extremely helpful. I had some emergency work to get done before my wedding and the Doctor squeezed me in and got everything done on a very short timeline. The staff is very pleasant and worked with me to get my insurance figured out. Would recommend.
