Having a routine dental examination discover that you need to have a tooth filled can lead to a sinking sense of dread. First, you are going to have to subject yourself to the mercy of the dentist drill. Then your smile and oral appearance are then going to be changed forever by unsightly amalgam. The good news, however, is that it doesn’t have to be this way.
At Sloan Dental, we know how upsetting getting a filling can be for many of our patients, especially when fillings are required in visually noticeable areas of the mouth. This is why our dentists are proud to be able to offer cosmetic fillings designed to match our patients existing enamel colour.
As well as being much less visually noticeable, cosmetic fillings will usually require less drilling when it comes to filling a tooth in the first place. Even better, cosmetic fillings will often last longer than more traditional amalgam fillings. However, the benefits don’t stop there.
A: If you are a Sloan Dental patient in need of a filling or tooth restoration, your dentist will be more than happy to discuss the advantages of cosmetic fillings with you in more detail. The most important thing to remember, however, is that filling procedures themselves are very similar to regular filling procedures.
Like with regular fillings, a local anaesthetic will be administered to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Your dentist will then prepare your tooth surface ready for filling, by drilling away a small area surrounding your cavity. Finally, He or she will then apply a specially formulated resin which will harden quickly and become your new cosmetic filling itself.

Depending on your diagnosis, our dentists will then recommend everything from basic antibiotic treatments to painless scraping of gums to remove plaque.
