A filling is a restoration of a tooth that has either decayed or has broken (either from trauma or advanced decay). A decayed or broken tooth can be painful, unsightly and/or cause food traps. We use two types of filling materials: White composite fillings, which are colour matched to the rest of your teeth, or amalgam (silver). We will discuss which is better for each individual case. Fillings restore function and integrity of teeth, and provide fantastic aesthetic results.
