Treating Cavities with White Fillings in Sainte-Catherine

Cavities are a form of tooth decay caused when acid and microbes damage tooth enamel, leading to erosion and deterioration. When the enamel is worn through, small holes form and these are what we call cavities.

Cavities lead to dental pain and can progress to advanced decay with infected pulp. If cavities are untreated, teeth can weaken and break, or you could find yourself needing root canal treatment for an infection. White fillings in Sainte-Catherine are used to repair cavities and prevent the progression of tooth decay. With regular checkups and dental examinations, cavities are identified early.

Traditional fillings used darker materials that were highly visible and often embarrassing. Composite restorations or white fillings in Sainte-Catherine allow you to maintain the aesthetic of your teeth so that you can smile with confidence.

Composite Restorations

White fillings are made from a resin material that can be shade-matched to your teeth. This makes them incredibly difficult to see, so your smile will remain naturally beautiful.

White fillings can also be referred to as composite restorations. The important point to note is that white fillings and composite restorations are a way to repair cavities, prevent further tooth decay, and keep your smile looking its absolute best. Composite restorations can also refer to situations where several fillings are placed around the mouth in the same procedure.

The procedure for white fillings in Saint-Constant and Sainte-Catherine is pain-free.

  • The area around the treated tooth or teeth will be numbed before placing white fillings in Saint-Constant.
  • Any decayed material will be removed and the tooth will be cleaned, before etching the surface to aid the adhesion of the composite dental material.
  • The material is shaped by the dentist to match the natural contour of your tooth.
  • A special light is used to cure composite restorations.
  • When the composite material hardens, the final touch-up work and polishing will be completed.

In a few steps, you will have a fully repaired tooth with a white filling. It will be near indistinguishable from your natural enamel. If several teeth need treatment, the same steps will be followed for each tooth.
