Dental Fillings

No cavities allowed here. Riverdale Dental provides dental fillings for the Toronto community!

What is a dental filling?

A dental filling is designed to restore a decayed, damaged or cracked tooth to its natural function and shape.

When your dentist gives you a filling, she will first remove the decayed tooth, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned out cavity with a composite resin material (filling). With a composite resin filling, the filling will resemble the colour of your natural teeth. 

Composite fillings are designed to not only provide long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing results for patients, but they also restore and strengthen the decayed tooth. In fact, most composite fillings, involve removing only a small amount of natural tooth during a cavity-filling procedure.

The Benefits of Fillings 

A dental filling can: 

  • eliminate further damage of a decaying tooth and protect its healthy enamel
  • restore sufficient function of the tooth
  • prevent nerve damage of a tooth
  • prevent tooth loss 
  • prevent future need for more invasive dental treatment
