Restore the Natural Look and Feel of Your Teeth

At our office, dental fillings are a routine procedure performed to repair and restore teeth while preventing further decay or infection that may necessitate more extensive treatment. We utilize composite resin fillings that are carefully colour-matched to your natural tooth shade. Unlike traditional amalgam (metal) fillings, tooth-coloured composite resin forms a strong bond with the tooth and can effectively fill smaller spaces, minimizing the need for extensive drilling.

Why Are Fillings So Important?

Getting a filling may seem like a chore, but it’s important to address cavities promptly.

Here’s why:
  • Stop cavities from worsening
  • Prevent painful infections or abscesses
  • Restore tooth strength and durability
  • Save money in the long run
  • Reduce sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Preserve your natural smile

What is the process for filling a cavity?

Gentle Freezing

Prior to the cavity filling procedure, we prioritize your comfort by administering a local anesthetic to numb your gums. We understand that this step can cause apprehension, but rest assured that it allows us to ensure a painless experience. The anesthetic effectively numbs the teeth and the surrounding area, minimizing any sensation during the procedure.

The Process of Filling the Tooth

Once we ensure that you are comfortably numb, we proceed to clean and prepare your tooth with precision. An adhesive gel is applied to the affected tooth, creating a foundation for the composite resin, which is a white filling material. The composite resin is then meticulously moulded and sculpted to perfectly match the contours and bite of your tooth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking restoration.

Curing the Composite

The special LED light rapidly cures and solidifies the composite resin material employed for tooth filling or bonding. Following that, the dentist will thoroughly inspect your completed tooth and perform necessary adjustments or refinements before giving it a final gloss.

The Cost Of A Filling In Burnaby

Fillings are a routine and effective method for preventing and avoiding dental problems, and many insurance companies offer substantial coverage for them. Under a typical insurance plan, you can expect to pay anywhere from $0 to $100+ for fillings. In the absence of dental insurance, the cost can range from $120 to $300 and higher, especially if multiple fillings are required simultaneously.

When determining the actual cost of your treatment, we consider several crucial factors:
  1. Your current oral health
  2. The number of fillings needed
  3. The location of the cavity in your mouth
  4. Whether new x-rays are necessary
  5. The amount of time the dental team requires to address your specific needs
  6. The equipment and supplies needed to fulfill all your requirements

Promptly filling cavities is of utmost importance to us, as it effectively prevents more invasive treatments, mitigates serious dental pain, and ensures your overall happiness and well-being.
