Dental Fillings in Chilliwack, BC

Dental fillings are used to fill cavities in the teeth. They are made of different materials, including various metals. Metals are known for their strength, while composite fillings are popular due to their natural tooth-like colour, which makes the fillings less visible in the mouth.

When Do You Need Dental Fillings?

When cavities form in the teeth, bacteria can enter the dental pulp and cause infection. This leads to pain and inflammation inside the tooth. If left untreated, the infection can spread to the root and weaken the tooth’s structure, and in severe cases, the infected tooth may need to be removed.

What Is the Dental Filling Procedure?

Your dentist will first numb the area with a local anesthetic. They will then drill a hole in the tooth and remove the damaged pulp. The area will be cleaned to remove any remaining bacteria, and the hole will be sealed with a dental filling.
