Why do I need a dental filling?

Are you tired of having food stuck in your teeth? Maybe you’re noticing more sensitivity than usual while chewing food, brushing, or touching your teeth. For various reasons, patients develop cavities, holes or experience loss of enamel that exposes the inner parts of their teeth. Luckily, dental fillings can provide an effective, tooth-coloured solution that preserves oral health and cosmetic appearance.

Patients noticing pain, sensitivity, holes or rough, jagged teeth may require a dental filling to protect their teeth. Common scenarios that prompt dental fillings include:

  • Cavities
  • Grinding and clenching (also known as bruxism)
  • Decay
  • Fractures or cracks

Patients may have several dental fillings throughout their lifetimes as cavities and other holes in enamel commonly occur from dietary choices, genetics, changes in oral health, and many other factors! Our friendly staff at Plaza Dental Care restores full, painless function to patients’ teeth with tooth-coloured dental fillings that lower the risk for further decay or detriment to oral health further down the line.
