Dental Fillings in Coquitlam
At Greenline Dental, we see cavities as the first sign of tooth decay, which we can effectively stop in its tracks with the help of composite dental fillings. We use composite resin to create a tooth-coloured filling that protects and strengthens the existing tooth structure, preventing tooth decay from spreading. Dental fillings are a straightforward procedure to help preserve your natural teeth.
How Composite Dental Fillings Work
At Greenline Dental, our experienced dentists use composite resin to fill cavities, as it creates a tooth-coloured finish that is discreet and aesthetically appealing. To place a dental filling, your dentist will apply a local anesthetic to the tooth area before cleaning out the infected tissue and making room for the composite material. Once the filling has been created, your dentist will use ultraviolet light to cure and harden the material.
Dental Fillings at Greenline Dental
When your dentist identifies a cavity during your oral health exam, they may recommend a composite dental filling depending on the size of the cavity. Catching a cavity early enough means a dental filling can be placed in just one dental appointment for your convenience and comfort. Thanks to local anesthetic, the treatment is minimally-invasive, and you can leave our clinic with peace of mind knowing your tooth is protected.
