Restorations are close to their original strength and appearance with composite resins and other modern materials.
Modern dentistry has allowed Envision Dental to combine beauty as well as strength when filling teeth. Restorations are close to their original strength and appearance with composite resins and other modern materials. The patient’s comfort is always the main priority of the dental team, leading to a positive experience.
Fillings (restorations) are used to replace tooth structure that is decayed. Caries can be detected through direct observation or x-rays. Fillings are also used to repair fractured, broken, or severely worn teeth.
We will proceed to cavity preparation, removing any remaining decay and shaping the final cavity. The next step will be the addition of composite-resin filling material, cured (hardened) after with a curing light. The final step will be polishing the filling to adapt it smoothly to the natural shape of the tooth.
Composite fillings are very aesthetic restorations since they are available in natural shades matching tooth colours. They are also being tolerated perfectly by all patients who visit Envision Dental . In some cases cavity preparation could become very large for usual fillings and we will recommend an inlay or an onlay (partial crown), restorations designed to replace more tooth structure. Those restorations are made in a dental laboratory after the dentist has taken you an impression of the preparation. The final placement of inlay or onlay will be made during a second visit at Envision Dental.
Fillings do not last forever so it is essential that you visit Envision Dental regularly for further examinations. Fillings can develop cracks or simply wear down due to chewing forces. The dentist monitors the integrity of your fillings during regular exams and will recommend replacing a filling if a problem is detected.
