A tooth filling is a simple treatment for repairing damaged or decayed teeth. Our dentists may recommend tooth fillings in Toronto, ON, if you have cavities, chipped or broken teeth.
Fillings restore dental function and appearance and are usually applied within a single appointment. However, indirect fillings, or inlays and onlays, may require additional visits. Inlays and onlays are necessary when a cavity is too large for a simple, direct filling but not significant enough to necessitate a dental crown.

Tooth fillings are made from different materials. Our dentists take time to explain the pros and cons of each material to help you make an informed decision.
Types of tooth fillings include:
Our dentists in Toronto, ON, start by numbing your tooth with a local anesthetic. Next, the dentists remove all decayed portions of your tooth. After cleaning the cavity thoroughly, the dentists rebuild the tooth using your preferred material.
Composite resin fillings are applied in layers. The dentists apply a layer, harden it, and then pour in another layer until complete restoration.
If you require indirect fillings, the dentists obtain your impressions and share them with the dental lab, which creates your inlays or onlays from your preferred material. On your subsequent visit, the dentists cement the indirect fillings to your teeth.
