Composite Fillings in Winnipeg

While getting a filling probably isn’t on your wish list, the team at Harte Dental will go the extra mile to make the experience as comfortable as possible.

What is a Composite Filling?

Composite fillings are used to repair the damage caused by cavities, tooth fractures and decay. In days past, silver fillings were the standard, but today’s composite fillings are more durable and much more natural in terms of look and feel. We can match the look and colour of your existing teeth, creating a seamless smile!

What Does Getting a Composite Filling Entail?

First we remove any tooth decay, and then we’ll fill in the space with the composite material. The filling is then shaped and polished to create a look, feel and bite that’s as good as new.

Reasons for Composite Fillings:

  • Decayed teeth
  • Chipped / worn teeth
  • Extra space between teeth
  • Cracked / broken teeth

Caring For Composite Fillings

You may experience sensitivity to hot or cold directly after the procedure, but this will quickly subside. Composite fillings are incredibly durable, but proper oral hygiene, diet and regular visits to your dentist will add to their longevity. Even with proper care, some fillings may need to be replaced over time.
