If you have cavities on your teeth, it is recommended to get them filled right away. If a cavity is not filled, it gradually grows bigger and causes pain. In some cases, you can also lose your teeth due to cavities. Kildonan Park Dental offers dental fillings in Winnipeg. You can get your infected teeth filled with composite fillings, amalgam fillings or metal fillings as per your budget and aesthetic preference. In some cases, fillings can also be used to repair cracked or broken teeth.
How Are Fillings Placed?
To place a filling, dentists clean the affected area thoroughly to remove all the decaying matter and then put glue or bonding material (depending on the type of filling) inside the hole. Composite fillings usually cost more than traditional amalgam fillings, as they look more natural and also last longer. After the cavity is filled, you should be vigilant to prevent decay in and around the cavity. To prevent decay, brush your teeth twice using a fluoride toothpaste and floss once a day.
