Dental Fillings in Orangeville
When teeth are decayed, cracked, or broken, dental fillings are often used to repair them. These fillings are made of a variety of materials, including gold, porcelain, dental amalgam, composite resin, and ceramics.
Why Should I Get Dental Fillings?
If there are cavities in the teeth, bacteria can easily get in, causing an infection. The infection often causes symptoms, including pain and inflammation, which can worsen if not treated promptly. Cavities that are not filled and become infected may require more serious treatment, such as a root canal treatment or even an extraction.
Do Fillings Need to Be Replaced?
Although fillings typically have a long lifespan, they may eventually loosen, wear out, or break. If you have amalgam fillings, it is possible to replace them with composite resin fillings, which are more aesthetically pleasing because they can be matched to the natural colour of the teeth.
