Fillings

At Northgate Dental Centre in North Burnaby, our dentists use bonded composite fillings, also known as white fillings, to make tooth-coloured restorations for cavities.

What are fillings?

Fillings are used to fix broken teeth, to fill a cavity, or even to replace any old fillings that might be damaged in need of repair.

Your dentist will first remove all the decay from the tooth, then provide the filling to prevent further infection or decay of your tooth. 

 At Northgate Dental Centre in Burnaby, we use bonded composite fillings.

What are bonded composite fillings?

Bonded composite fillings are made from materials that are similar in colour to teeth.

They can be used as new fillings for cavities, or to replace old fillings that might need to be removed.

The composite material generally used is made from glass-filled particles in a resin matrix and has a putty-like consistency prior to curing.

Why use bonded composite fillings?

Composite resin, the material used to make the fillings, comes in a variety of shades.

We will customize your treatment plan and work towards your filling suiting your smile.

The material is also very strong and durable, yet easily repaired or resurfaced to maintain your tooth structure. We use LED fast-curing lights to harden the material and create a solid form.
