There are innumerable reasons why you would be a candidate for composite fillings. Most of our patients have:
The best thing about getting composite fillings is that you will only need a single appointment. At King West Dentistry, the procedure starts with the numbing of the affected tooth. Our skilled dentist will start by removing the decayed material from the tooth and clean it to ready it for the filling. If the decay was close to a nerve, we use special medication which will be added to boost protection. The dentist will then set the composite filling, shape it to match your other teeth and polish it so that it has the same natural look as the other teeth. Thanks to the expertise of our team, your friends will not be able to distinguish your natural teeth from the restored ones. That is the beauty of composite filling.
After the administration of the composite filling, you will feel some discomfort and sensitivity to cold and heat for the first few days. Your tooth will, however, adapt to the filling and the sensitivity will disappear.
At King West Dentistry, we want you to have a bright smile and natural tooth function for longer. That is why at the end of the procedure our dentists take the time to educate you on how to care for the restored tooth during and after healing. It is important that you listen to what our dentists tell you and also follow the instructions.
