Composite Fillings Near You

We provide composite fillings in Banff to restore teeth suffering from cavities. In the past, fillings were silver, making them unappealing. However, with composite fillings, they match your natural teeth.

When are Filings Required?

Our dentist recommends patients receive fillings when:

  • They have chipped teeth
  • They have tooth decay and cavities
  • They have minor cracks in their teeth
  • They have broken teeth
  • Their teeth are worn
  • They have minor gapping between teeth

Since composite fillings are not as strong as amalgam fillings, we recommend using composite fillings in the visible areas of your smile. Typically composite fillings will not be used on the back molars.

The Benefits of Receiving Composite Fillings

Composite fillings provide our patients with many benefits, including the following:

  • They are a durable solution
  • They enhance your smile and look natural
  • They preserve more of your enamel
  • They can alter the shape and length of your teeth
  • They are ideal for minor imperfections and cavities

The Process of Receiving Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are completed in a single appointment. We will administer local anesthesia and wait until your gums are fully numbed before starting. Our dentist will first remove the decay and thoroughly clean the area. The composite fillings will then be placed and shaped.

Typically patients experience minor discomfort in the first couple of days, which includes increased tooth sensitivity. While your new fillings are durable, they are prone to wear-and-tear. Once you see signs of wear, we recommend getting your filling replaced. If you have any questions or concerns about receiving composite fillings near you, please contact us.
