Dental Fillings

Think you may need a tooth filling in Saskatoon, SK? When plaque or tartar collects on a tooth, it can start to eat away at the hard outer layer of the tooth. When this happens, little pockets, or cavities, begin to form and can infect the soft pulp in the center of the tooth. To prevent this from happening, cavities must be filled.

When small cavities are found during routine exams, it is important to get the cavity filled as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the larger the chance of the issue getting worse and potentially causing even more serious issues, such as root canal infection, gum disease or the need for extraction. Schedule your dental fillings in Saskatoon, SK today.

Benefits of Composite Fillings

Thanks to advances in dental technology, we are lucky to have composite fillings. Benefits of composite dental fillings include:

  • Metal-Free – metal alloy contains small amounts of mercury, of which many people are concerned about the long-term health effects
  • Tooth-Colored – unlike metal filings of the past, composites are made to match the color of your tooth. When smiling or laughing, you don’t have to worry about flashes of metal showing.
  • Long-Lasting – metal fillings would expand and constrict with changes in temperature in the mouth from hot and cold beverages. This can lead to cracks and leakage over long periods of time.
