Bonded Fillings

Dental Filling Thornhill

A dental filling sometimes referred to as restorative treatment; is used to restore decayed tooth back to normal function and appearance. Tooth decay is caused by the build of plaque. This plaque contains bacteria that feed on it, and as they metabolize they release acids that create holes in teeth referred to as cavity.

During a restorative treatment, depending on the depth of the cavity Dr. Radman will determine whether you require local anesthesia to numb the area. He will then remove the decayed part of the tooth and ensure there are no bacteria are left in the area. He will then close off the cavity using composite and this will not only restore most of the tooth’s strength but also prevent bacteria from re-entering the area.
