Restore Your Teeth's Natural Look and Feel.

Dental fillings, our most frequently performed procedure, repair teeth to fend off decay or infections that necessitate extensive treatment. Our composite resin fillings, colour-matched to your teeth, offer a superior alternative to amalgam (metal fillings). Tooth-coloured composite resin adheres effectively to teeth, filling even tiny cavities with minimal drilling required.

Why Are Fillings So Important?

Many view getting a filling as a hassle, often delaying or questioning the need, especially if there’s no pain—yet. However, it’s crucial to address cavities promptly, and here’s why:

  • Stop cavities from getting bigger.
  • Prevent painful infections or abscesses.
  • Cavities weaken tooth strength; fillings reinforce it.
  • They save you money in the long run.
  • Reduce sensitivity to hot and cold.
  • Preserve your natural smile for as long as possible.

How Is A Cavity Filled?

Gentle Numbing

Before anything else, we ensure your comfort by numbing your gums thoroughly, preparing you for a gentle freezing process. The freezing technique numbs your teeth and surrounding tissues, minimizing sensation during the treatment.

Tooth Filling Process

Once you’re sufficiently numb and comfortable, we meticulously clean and prepare your tooth. We then apply an adhesive gel, followed by sculpting a composite resin (white filling material) to seamlessly match your tooth’s shape and bite.

Setting the Filling

We use a specialized LED light to rapidly cure and harden the composite resin, ensuring your filling or bonding is strong. Afterward, the dentist meticulously reviews and refines your tooth, concluding with a final polish for a smooth finish.

The Cost Of A Filling In Vaughan

Fillings, a common preventative dental measure, are usually well-covered by insurance. With standard insurance, costs range from $0 to $100+. Without insurance, prices vary from $120 to $300+, especially for multiple fillings.

Several factors influence the cost of your filling:

  • Your oral health status.
  • The number of fillings required.
  • The cavity’s location.
  • The necessity for new x-rays.
  • The time and resources the dental team needs for your care.
  • The required equipment and supplies.

Filling cavities promptly is very important to us, as fillings are so effective at preventing more invasive treatments, preventing serious dental pain and keeping you as happy and healthy as possible.

Contact us today

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.

Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions

With proper daily care, including brushing and flossing, along with regular dental cleanings and checkups, your fillings can last for more than a decade.

Amalgam fillings, also known as silver or mercury fillings are composed of a mixture including mercury, silver, tin, and copper. While there is plenty of debate over the safety of amalgam fillings, according to the Canadian Dental Association, scientific studies have not verified that dental amalgam is causing illness in the general population. So if you currently have silver fillings, don’t fear!

While over-the-counter products exist for temporarily addressing cavities or minor tooth damage, they are not a long-term solution and cannot substitute for a professional dental filling. Cavities represent irreversible tooth damage that requires cleaning, preparation, and filling by a dental professional. Delaying proper treatment can result in significant risks, as untreated dental decay may lead to tooth loss and abscesses.

If severe dental pain is affecting your ability to eat or sleep, it’s crucial to consider this a dental emergency and contact our office immediately. We can offer guidance over the phone and arrange to see you as swiftly as possible. For temporary pain relief, you can apply a cold compress to the area of your face where the pain is most intense. Over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol) or ibuprofen (e.g., Advil) may also help alleviate discomfort. It’s important to follow your doctor’s recommendations and the medication’s instructions carefully. Remember to record the medication you take, the dosage, and the time you took it, so you can inform your dentist during your visit.

    Dr. Khan and the wonderful staff at Concord Dental are in a league of their own. They work with you to give you options on your many dental needs, they put forth an effort at all times to look after any dental and pain issues by finding a solution rather than immediately sending you out to other specialists. Not only does that speak to my comfort level of having a competant and caring dentist. It also assures me that with Concord Dental, I have the BEST in dental care. They are considerate of their patients schedules in booking appointments so when you arrive, there is rarely, if ever, a wait time. My family wouldn't go anywhere else. Its nice to know that when you have a dental problem, you can count on Concord Dental and their staff to help you any way they can. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
