A dental filling is usually a two-part step. It is first the removal of decaying tooth matter, caused by cavities, or alternately, the removal of damaged tooth matter caused by injury. Secondly, the dentist applies different materials, to fill the removed portion of the tooth, which allows the person to have full function of that tooth.

The types of filling done at our practice include:

Sliver Fillings: Stewart Street practice has stopped doing mercury containing silver amalgam fillings a few years ago, and we are the first practice to go amalgam free.

White Fillings (Tooth-Colored Resins): Composite resin is a filling material designed for aesthetic dental restorations. These fillings resemble the color of your natural tooth and are often used for filling smaller dental cavities or for dental bonding front teeth.

Glass Ionomer Fillings: is made of a specific type of glass material, which chemically bond to teeth. This material is most commonly used for fillings below the gum line and for fillings in young children.

Inlays and Onlays: are similar to fillings but is indirectly made in the lab from a variety of materials, including ceramics, gold, precious metal free alloys and resins.
