Dental Fillings in Brampton

The outermost surface of the tooth is made of enamel with a second white layer called dentin underneath. When cavities develop in these areas, they allow bacteria to penetrate the inner portion of the tooth and cause the dental pulp to become infected. It’s essential to fill any cavities promptly to prevent serious complications from infection.

What Are Dental Fillings Made From?

Dental fillings can be made from a variety of materials, including composite resin and amalgam. Metal-coloured amalgam fillings are very strong and can last for up to 15 years. Although composite fillings tend to last only five to seven years, many patients prefer them because they are tooth coloured and blend perfectly in the mouth.

Can I Delay Getting a Dental Filling?

As soon as you suspect that you may have a cavity in your tooth, we recommend getting it checked by your dentist. Cavities that are left untreated tend to get worse over time and may result in a serious tooth infection. At this point, your dentist may have to perform a root canal to bring your tooth back to health.
