Dental Fillings at
First Impressions Dental

When cavities develop, it’s vital to treat them early on before additional tooth structure is compromised. Our dentists have elected to use quality composite materials (shaded to match the colour of your teeth) to fill areas of tooth decay in the least invasive manner possible.

The goal of a tooth coloured filling is to prevent additional tooth damage, strengthen the tooth overall and enhance the appearance of your smile.

Symptoms of Tooth Decay

How can you tell whether or not your tooth has a cavity? Let us know if you’re experiencing symptoms such as:

  • Pain
  • Sensitivity
  • Trouble eating
  • Something feeling “off”
  • Floss catching around your tooth
  • Rough or sharp edges

During your exam, we may need to take an X-ray of the area to determine how deep the cavity is. This helps our dentists determine the appropriate treatment and/or size of filling necessary.

Some cavities never cause pain or discomfort, but they can continue to weaken the tooth until it fractures. We recommend scheduling a checkup every six months so that decay can be intercepted during its earliest stages or even reversed if the demineralisation has yet to work its way through the outer layers of enamel.

A Comfortable Experience for Every Patient

Going to the dentist is easier for some people than it is for others.  At First Impressions Dental, we are committed to ensuring that each patient under our care is carefully attended to and met at their own comfort level. We explain each procedure step by step and answer any questions that you may have, always working at your preferred pace.

Sedation Options Available

Sedation dentistry options are available upon request. Should you prefer to enjoy a deeper level of relaxation during your procedure — whether it’s a filling or something more complex — we’re happy to make those arrangements for you.
