Our team at Dentistry in Newmarket may recommend a dental filling to patients if a cavity has been formed in a tooth, if a tooth has been chipped or if a filling needs to be replaced.
A dental filling is used as a treatment to repair a tooth that is affected by decay or fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and is afterwards filled with a dental filling. Dental fillings blend in your natural teeth because the composite resin is similar to the colour of your teeth. As with most dental restorations, dental fillings are not permanent and may have to be replaced.

Reasons for dental fillings:
- Chipped teeth
- Closing a gap between two teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Decayed or worn teeth, such as a cavity
Why are dental fillings important?
A decaying tooth can expose the tooth to bacteria, which may cause an infection. Dental fillings fix cavities and other damage, and strengthen your tooth. If you think you may have a cavity, contact us immediately to get your tooth treated.
