Dental Fillings in Westlock, Alberta
We’ll help you repair cavities and restore your mouth to full function.
Composite fillings are made of a unique tooth-coloured resin, specifically designed to blend in with the rest of your mouth. They are a significantly safer, more durable, and aesthetically appealing alternative to mercury amalgam fillings.
- Matches tooth colour effortlessly
- Durable and long lasting
- Can repair cracks, gaps, and chips as well as cavities
We’ll start your appointment by freezing your mouth to ensure your comfort. Next we prepare the tooth and make sure we get rid of any built up bacteria. We will then apply the composite resin that has been colour matched to the rest of your teeth. It will be hardened using a special light, and then contoured to fit amongst your other teeth.
How long do fillings last for?
Composite fillings usually last for 10+ years.
Why should I get composite fillings instead of traditional or mercury fillings?
Traditional or mercury fillings can be harmful to your body. Additionally, traditional fillings must be fully replaced if they crack while composite fillings can be repaired. Most people also think that composite fillings are more aesthetically pleasing than other metal fillings.
Are fillings covered by insurance?
