Oral surgery is performed to treat injuries and defects around the neck, face, head and jaw.
By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling helps prevent further decay. Materials used for fillings include gold, porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings) and an amalgam.
Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse such as nail-biting or grinding.
Sherwood Park Dental Care Centre offers tooth-colored fillings, which blend in seamlessly to the surface of your tooth. For more questions regarding this procedure, please call or visit us.
