Dental Fillings at St Clair Dental

Woman inspecting her dental work in a mirrorWhen a tooth has been damaged by decay or other trauma, we want you to keep your natural tooth if at all possible. Often, a filling offers a simple solution to restoring your smile. At St Clair Dental, we offer fillings in a range of materials to meet your needs:

  • Composite resin restoration
  • Glass ionomer cement
  • Light-cured composites
  • Self-cured composites
  • Silver amalgam

We would be happy to take a look at your tooth and discuss which of these materials is most appropriate for you.

The Process of Getting a Filling

There are two steps involved: preparing the tooth and placing the filling material. First, we’ll determine which shade is best to match existing teeth in the case of a tooth-coloured filling. Then, we’ll remove all decay present and isolate the tooth with a cotton roll or rubber dam. A phosphoric acid substance will be briefly applied and rinsed off, followed by a primer and adhesive. The filling material will be placed, followed by finishing and polishing to contour the restoration.
