Here at Orleans Dental Arts, our OTTAWA fillings options combine beauty and strength. The process is simple, long lasting and restores your smile and sense of well being. We use composite fillings because they match your enamel and are accepted by your gums.

Here’s a few things that you can do before and during your visit so things go smoothly.

  • They’re durable. Although they aren’t permanent, the fillings we use are tough. Add in some regular checkups and you stand to get as much as 15 years from one.

  • They’re easy to care for. Ottawa fillings don’t require any special treatment. Flossing and brushing like you would normally is all that’s needed in most cases. If you notice a crack or feel a sharp edge in your filling, get in touch with us right away. Routine dental checkups help us to find any small cracks or missing pieces.

  • They look good. Composite material is the same color is your natural tooth. It blends in so well no one but you and your dentist will know it’s there.

Patients ask us how they know they need Ottawa fillings. The best way is through a routine dental checkup and letting us have a close look. Your tooth could be sensitive as well. Patients tell us there is a pain and tenderness when they are eating or drinking something hot or cold.

Some folks report a bad taste in your mouth and/or bad breath.

Thinking About Sidestepping Ottawa Fillings? Here’s what Can Happen If You Don’t Get the Work Done

Not getting cavity work done can ruin your smile in several different ways. The idea is to make sure that you stop any further issues from developing when you’ve got a cavity. If you let the situation go untreated long enough, you could develop an abscess and need a root canal.

Don’t be the kind of person who puts off dental treatment. It always costs more in the long run.

Our OTTAWA fillings process is thorough. We start by removing any of the decay so we have a clean area to work with. Next, we use the filling material, finally polishing it so it matches the curvature of your tooth.

Remember, preventing cavities so you don’t need fillings is the first line of defence. Keeping up a good oral hygiene routine is important. If you got any other questions about our Ottawa fillings process, get in touch.

Make sure to replace your toothbrush every three months or when it begins to show wear, whichever comes first.
