Tooth-Coloured Fillings in Richmond Hill

In getting a tooth-coloured filling, it is essential that you contact a dentist and receive appropriate instructions and recommendations. This is to avoid any casualty and complications. We have experts in this area of specialization that are available to provide you with top-notch coloured fillings for your tooth, coupled with comfort and elegance for you.

Tooth-Coloured Fillings Procedure

Tooth-coloured fillings require several supplementary steps.

The dentist starts by using a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth. The dentist will then remove the decayed area using a device, air abrasion tool, or laser. The individual dentist’s level of confidence, preparation, and investment in the specific piece of equipment and the position and magnitude of the decay determines the instrument.

Following that, your dentist will inspect the area to determine if all of the decay has been eliminated. After the decay has been eliminated, your dentist will clean the hole and wreckage while preparing preparation for the filling. If the decay is close to the root, your dentist may first insert a glass ionomer or composite liner to protect the nerve. Then your dentist will do the finishing and polishing.

First, our dentist applies the tooth-coloured material in layers after eliminating the decomposition and washing the area. Then, he uses a special light to “cure” or harden each layer. When our dentist finishes the multilayering process, he will frame the synthetic material to the exact dimension, trim off any excess material, and polish the final restoration.

Why You Should Consider Tooth-Coloured Filling

  • It helps to maintain a wholesome tooth structure:¬†

Composite resin, used in tooth-coloured fillings, adheres to the teeth. As a result, we don’t have to remove as much natural tooth structure as we might with silver amalgam or gold dental work. This allows us to handle your cavity more cautiously and preserve your organic tooth structure even more.

  • Attractiveness:¬†

Tooth-coloured fillings, as opposed to gold fillings and the silver amalgam of the past, blend in with your surrounding tooth structure, so no one can tell you have a cavity. Instead, everyone will notice your gorgeous, white teeth if you are grinning, having a conversation, or making involuntary movements.

  • Fast Treatment:¬†

The procedure for tooth-coloured fillings is swift and simple. Our dentist can treat one or two cavities in under an hour. Our dentist will use local anesthesia to deaden the gums and teeth in the infected area during your admission.

We will begin treatment after the numbing effect has worn off, typically requiring 10 to 15 minutes. We will first eliminate any contaminated tooth material before cleaning the tooth. Our dentist will then apply the tooth-coloured resin (coated to match the natural shade of your teeth) directly into the cavity left by the tooth decay. 

Our dentist will frame the resin composites material to preserve your natural bite before hardening it with special healing light. We will work as efficiently as possible during this process to reduce the volume of actual treatment time. We can usually place, heal, and polish your filling in about 15 minutes.

Durability 

If you take good care of your dentures, gums, and cavities, your tooth-coloured fillings could last a decade. Brush twice a day, floss once a day, and have a dentist’s examination and cleaning every six months.

Furthermore, you should avoid bad dental habits like munching on unfit for human consumption objects like inks or your long nails and chewing on frozen or hard sweets, which can scratch or dislocate your fillings.

Dental Care Without Metals

Metal-free dentistry is important to many patients for reasons other than aesthetics. Traditional metal restorations contain toxins and other materials that can harm your oral and overall health. 

Even though the filling is strong, some clients particularly worry about consuming trace metals as the metal wears down over time. Furthermore, amalgam fillings grow in size with temperature changes, weakening them over time and improving their chances of chipping or breaking. 

In contrast, temperature changes barely affect tooth-coloured fillings and remain extremely stable.

If you want to be more proactive in avoiding cavities, you should consult your dentist about preventive care recommendations. For example, while dental sealants and professional fluoride treatments are typically recommended for younger patients, they can also be effective options for certain adults.

Dental sealants are a clear, malleable material that is applied to the molars to help prevent pit and fissure cavities from developing on the rough top surfaces of the premolars and molars. In addition, professional fluoride treatments help to strengthen the enamel and keep cavities at bay.

Typically, molar sealants and fluoride treatments are only covered by dental insurance for pediatric patients; however, it is a wise investment for adults who want to avoid developing cavities.

Tooth-coloured fillings are the most popular cure for dental cavities. We use them when tooth decay has advanced to the stage where minimal intervention procedures will repair holes. 

Tooth-coloured fillings have many advantages over metal amalgam fillings, including preserving tooth structure, bonding to the tooth to create a seal, and, of course, being more desirable. 

If we discover a cavity that needs to be filled during your checkup, we will typically arrange an extra appointment to perform tooth-coloured fillings in Richmond Hill. We will first remove any damaged tooth content during your filling session. The filling you need determines what happens next.
