Composite Dental Fillings Kelowna

We’ll help you repair cavities and restore your mouth to full function.

Composite fillings are made of a unique tooth-coloured resin, specifically designed to blend in with the rest of your mouth. They are a significantly safer, more durable, and aesthetically appealing alternative to mercury amalgam fillings.

Key Benefits:

  • Matches tooth colour effortlessly
  • Durable and long lasting
  • Can repair cracks, gaps, and chips as well as cavities

We’ll start your appointment by freezing your mouth to ensure your comfort. Next we prepare the tooth and make sure we get rid of any built up bacteria. We will then apply the composite resin that has been colour matched to the rest of your teeth. It will be hardened using a special light, and then contoured to fit amongst your other teeth.

Insurance & Pricing

We believe that high-quality dental care should be accessible for everyone. That’s why we accept most major insurance plans and do not price anything above the current BC Dental Association’s fee guide. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Additional Information

Dental fillings are a type of dental restoration used to repair teeth affected by decay, cracks, and trauma. Your dentist will remove the affected or decayed portion of your tooth and fill it with a composite filling. We use bonded fillings made of a composite resin that’s similar in colour to a patient’s tooth. Different from traditional silver amalgam fillings, the composite resin blends naturally.

A bonded filling is a good choice when the cavity in question is small, and is not exposed to a lot of force. If the cavity covers a larger area, or if it is on a molar and you grind your teeth, a bonded filling may not be the best option. Our knowledgeable and caring team at One Dental will determine what will work best, and make sure you understand.

If we discover a cavity that needs to be filled, our team will:

  • Begin by placing a local anaesthetic to the area.
  • Carefully remove all decay from the tooth, using very precise instruments.
  • Prepare the tooth for the filling by etching the surface of the tooth. This will allow the filling to bond completely to the surface of the tooth.

Once the filling is bonded to the tooth, we will polish the surface of the filling so that the texture matches the surface of your tooth.

After the local anaesthetic wears off, you are unlikely to notice anything out of the ordinary. After the anaesthetic has worn off completely, you can eat and drink as usual.

FAQ

How long do fillings last for?

Composite fillings usually last for 10+ years.

Why should I get composite fillings instead of traditional or mercury fillings?

Traditional or mercury fillings can be harmful to your body. Additionally, traditional fillings must be fully replaced if they crack while composite fillings can be repaired. Most people also think that composite fillings are more aesthetically pleasing than other metal fillings.

Are fillings covered by insurance?

Most of our treatments are covered by a majority of insurance companies. For a more detailed explanation of your coverage please call your service provider.
