At Thornhill Village Dental, we use only the highest grade of tooth-colored filling material and upgrade as superior products become available. A properly placed tooth-colored filling will provide years of function and aesthetics!
Tooth-colored fillings are used to repair decayed, fractured or unaesthetic teeth. After the tooth is prepared, the tooth-colored filling material is bonded (glued) to the tooth. This requires the tooth to be dry and free of contamination in order to achieve a proper bond.
Sometimes an amalgam (silver) filling that was placed years past in the patients teeth may break down and need to be replaced. In many cases, a tooth-colored filling will serve as the best treatment option.
