Why do We Need Fillings?
Dental fillings accomplish a lot! We need fillings for several reasons:
- To repair decayed teeth
- To prevent future decay and tooth damage
- To reinforce tooth structure
- To hold up to biting, chewing, grinding of our jaw
- To last for many years.
- To improve the appearance of some teeth and our smile.
How we get your tooth ready for filling
First, we find out what’s wrong using a dental exam and x-rays. From there, we can see how many surfaces of your tooth is affected and how deep the cavity goes. Or if the tooth is broken, where the crack/chip is and to give us a rough idea of how to proceed.
Then, we give you a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth and gums. Using a modern dental equipment, we can precisely eliminate the decay so that we cna preserve as much of the tooth as possible. Then, we apply advanced filling material into the area we cleaned out to preserve the tooth and prevent future decay and bacteria and put a UV light on it to cure it. That’s it, the natural looking, long lasting, durable composite filling on your tooth is ready for you to enjoy.
The Cost of Dental Fillings in Burlington
The cost of tooth fillings depends on a few factors such as the material used (composite vs. ceramic vs. glass ionomer), how many surfaces of the tooth is the decay or chip etc. Usually, the cost for a filling ranges from $200 to $500 per tooth but if you have insurance, it might only be $40 to $100 out of pocket expense (based on 80% payout).

How long do fillings last?
Ideally, a tooth filling can last anywhere between 7 to 20 years. However, it depends on how well you take care of your teeth. Do you brush and floss regularly? Do you eat low sugar and healthy foods most of the time? Do you see your dentist for an exam regularly? Finally, do you clench and grind your teeth? These factors affect the durability of the fillings.
Why do you need a filling?
As soon as decay is removed from your tooth, you need something to fill in the gap otherwise bacteria and food get in there. That would lead to further decay, root canal or tooth extraction and extreme pain because eventually your tooth root would be exposed or infected. Also, you need fillings to support the tooth under the immense, constant daily chewing, grinding and biting stresses that your mouth experiences.
