Ask our dentists at Bernstein Dental Centre about fillings. A bonded filling is similar in colour to your teeth and blends in naturally.
When tooth decay has caused a hole to form on your tooth surface, also known as a cavity, you will need a filling.
If you don't get a filling, cavities may worsen or lead to more severe problems, such as bone loss. An untreated cavity can also lead to an abscess. You might also need a filling if a tooth has cracked or has been damaged.
A bonded filling is appropriate when the cavity is small and the area is not exposed to a lot of force in the mouth.
If the cavity to be filled is large or if it is on a molar and you grind your teeth, a bonded filling may not be your best option. Our dentists will recommend what filling is best for your smile.
