Composite Fillings
in Thunder Bay

Dental fillings are the most common procedure in dental practice and are used to help extend the life of a cracked, decayed, infected or fractured tooth.

The bonding and white fillings process

With the latest and most up to date technology, we are able to provide a filling that looks natural and will match the colour of your teeth. Plus, with the advancement in dental technology, bonding and fillings typically last for over 10 years. This solution is safe, affordable, and attractive, and takes just one appointment.

Step 1: Fill the tooth

Before filling cavities, we will numb your teeth, gums and surrounding skin to avoid any discomfort during the procedure. Next, a composite resin will be used on the affected tooth. It will be moulded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth to restore the function and beauty of your smile.

Step 2: Dry the tooth

After the resin has been applied and LED light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh new smile.
