Tooth-Coloured Fillings in Stoney Creek from Portway Dental Centre
At Portway Dental Centre in Stoney Creek, we offer routine tooth-coloured fillings for cavities. When you have a cavity, first tooth decay is removed and then a filling is placed. Fillings usually involve the following steps:
Your teeth, gums, tongue, and surrounding skin is numbed. A substance with a similar feel to jelly is placed directly on the area to start the numbing. Then an anaesthetic is injected to complete the process.
A dental handpiece is used to remove the decay.
Lastly, the filling is placed to replace the removed decay. Fillings are made of composite resin that provides a tooth-coloured appearance.

At Portway Dental Centre, our composite resin fillings are mercury-free. These fillings are made from a purified resin material.
Advantages of this type of filling include:
Integrating more easily with the tooth
Making secondary decay easier to spot
