During your routine cleaning, our hygienists or dentists may notice the start of some tooth decay that will require a filling.
A tooth filling is a simple and straightforward process that will require no downtime. Our dentists will numb the teeth and gum before beginning to minimize any discomfort. Next, they will drill out the decaying material in the tooth. Finally, the cleaned hole will be filled to restore your tooth.
There are several types of fillings used that our dentists will be happy to discuss with you before beginning the procedure. If you notice tooth discomfort when eating sweets or drinking very hot or cold beverages, we encourage you to contact our Mississauga office and book a free consultation with our dental specialists to see how we can help you.
