A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.

Dental fillings are one of the most common treatments here at Dr. Brent MacDonald’s  dental clinic in NE Calgary, AB. They are a simple way to repair damaged or decayed teeth while preventing further damage.

Commonly, we use tooth fillings in NE Calgary to address cavities. We always look for signs of cavities during your dental exam and will recommend a tooth filling when necessary.

Composite Fillings in NE Calgary

Dental fillings are made from several different materials. Each material offers unique pros and cons. Modern dentists often use composite fillings or silver amalgam fillings for cavities and other dental treatments.

While silver amalgam is a durable option, it is very noticeable. Our dental team offers white fillings in NE Calgary to blend with your natural teeth. White fillings are made from composite material. We can easily match them with your natural tooth colour, which makes them ideal for front teeth or other visible teeth.

It’s important to note that composite fillings are not permanent. While they can last many years with good care, they do eventually require replacement. Our general dentists check your fillings as part of your normal dental exams, and we can let you know when it’s time for a replacement.

Do I Need a Dental Filling?

How do you know if you should consider a dental filling in NE Calgary?

Here are the top signs you may benefit from a tooth filling:

Composite Filling Procedure

Typically, we complete composite fillings in a single appointment. The dentist numbs your mouth, and then removes any decay. Before installing the filling, they clean and prepare the tooth. Then, the dentist places the filling, before shaping and polishing it for a pristine look. The most common side effect from tooth fillings is sensitivity to cold and hot. Usually, this sensitivity only lasts a few days. However, you may find a toothpaste for sensitive teeth to be helpful.

Following your tooth filling, our dental team provides you with detailed aftercare instructions. Brushing and flossing each day, alongside regular dental appointments, will help your new filling last as long as possible.
