  • Composite Fillings 

  • Root Canal Treatment

Composite (White) Fillings

A composite, tooth-coloured, filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay (cavities), cracks, fractures, etc.  The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced.  They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.

Reasons for composite fillings:

  • Chipped teeth

  • Closing space between two teeth

  • Cracked or broken teeth

  • Decayed teeth (cavities)

  • Worn teeth

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection.  In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special medicated dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function. 

Reasons for root canal therapy:

  • Decay has reached the tooth pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth)

  • Infection or abscess have developed inside the tooth or at the root tip

  • Injury or trauma to the tooth
