Strengthen Weakened Teeth With Dental Fillings
An important restorative service that helps patients maintain good oral health, fillings repair, protect, and strengthen teeth that have experienced decay. At Apple Dental in Surrey, we’re pleased to provide our patients with amalgam and composite filling materials.
What's the difference between amalgam and composite fillings?
Amalgam (also known as silver) fillings are made of a combination of metals that provide strong protection against cavities. Typically used for larger cavities, they’re known for their durability and long-lasting effects. Composite fillings, on the other hand, utilize plastic, glass, and resin materials to create a natural-looking, durable finish that blends seamlessly with a patient’s smile.
What benefits do fillings offer?
Fillings help treat cavities and tooth decay before they cause more serious problems. They also help protect your oral health by preventing bacteria from entering the tooth, which can lead to infection. Fillings also provide support for weak or broken teeth, restoring the appearance and function of your smile.
How do I know if I need a filling?
While some patients experience symptoms such as sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, visible tooth discolouration, or pain when biting down, many aren’t aware of their need for a filling until they see us for an examination. This makes regular checkups and cleanings especially vital, as they help our team detect and care for decay before it’s left to spread.
If you suspect you need a filling or you’re looking to confirm that your teeth aren’t experiencing decay, call us today!
