Our Pickering dentists can use dental fillings to repair tooth decay and help repair the function and structure of the tooth. 

What is a Dental Filling?

A dental filling is a restorative material your dentist uses to fix a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. There are a number of filling materials available, and your dentist can help you choose the right option for you.

Dental Fillings | Pickering Smiles

Composite Fillings

Composite is a popular material for fillings because it is white and can be closely matched to the colour of your existing teeth.

A dentist might recommend a composite filling if the affected tooth can be seen when you open your mouth to talk or smile. 

Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam is another common material used for fillings.

These types of fillings don't blend in as well because they are silver in colour. However, because they are strong, they are a good choice for molars and premolars.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are indirect fillings that are made outside of the mouth and then used to fill a cavity, generally on a molar or premolar. 

Inlays fill the space in between the cusps at the centre of the tooth, while onlays covers one or more cusps or the entire surface of the tooth.
