Our Team of dental professionals is here to help you with your dental filling.
A common dental procedure, performed with local anesthetic, are fillings. When our teeth become damaged by tooth decay, a dentist will utilize filling material in order to restore the tooth back to its original shape and function. Fillings are also done in order to prevent any further tooth decay. Materials which are commonly used for fillings include composite resin, porcelain, gold, and an amalgam.
The type of filling that the dentist will use depends on the specific patient’s needs, wants, and allergies. For a high quality filling, materials such as gold, silver, porcelain, and plastic-known as amalgam-are used.
This is a question that is left to be determined by the dentist. When the tooth has undergone significant damage from tooth decay, a filling will then need to be placed in order to remedy the cavity in the teeth.
Manual checks as well as X-Rays are used in order to make the proper diagnosis of whether or not the teeth will need fillings and to what extent the filling will need to be placed. Both of these are dependent upon the amount of damage that the state of the teeth are currently in.

I visited My Dentist West Mount on the recommendation of a friend, and recently had my first appointment there. They were very professional and scheduled my initial exam (which I got it for free) and cleaning together, so that I didn't have to come back for a second appointment.
