Restore Your Smile With Dental Fillings

It's important to continue brushing and flossing regularly to reduce your risk of developing cavities. However, even with consistent dental hygiene, cavities may still occur. If a cavity does appear, don't worry! Our Skyview Family & Cosmetic Dentistry team in Aurora, ON, can take care of it and save your tooth with a dental filling.

How do cavities develop?

Cavities are holes in the teeth that result from tooth decay. They form when acids in the mouth eat away at a tooth’s enamel. Everyone is susceptible to them regardless of age. If a cavity is given time to grow, it opens the door to infection and more extensive decay, leading to the weakening of the tooth, pain, and even tooth loss.

When you first get a cavity, you may not even know it. Over time, symptoms can develop, including any of the following:

  • Discomfort and pain when biting
  • Sensitivity to anything cold, hot, or sweet
  • Stains
  • A persistent toothache.

If we detect a cavity, we suggest removing the decayed material and filling the hole to protect the tooth.

Options for fillings

  • Composite fillings. This material matches the colour of your natural teeth, making it completely undetectable.
  • Cast-gold fillings. These are very durable but also pricier. Some patients want to show off a bit of shine and ask for this material.

If you suspect you have a cavity, please get in touch with us right away. The team at Skyview Family & Cosmetic Dentistry wants to take care of it as quickly as possible so that you can avoid further decay and pain.
