Dental Tooth Fillings in Langford

Dental fillings are single or combinations of metals, plastics, glass or other materials used to repair or restore teeth.

One of the most popular uses of fillings is to “fill” an area of tooth that your dentist has removed due to decay, otherwise known as a cavity. Fillings are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).

The Benefits of Tooth Fillings

An array of different materials can be used for tooth fillings, making them both versatile and affordable. Each material has a different set of benefits:

Gold lasts, on average, between 10 – 15 years and is an aesthetically pleasing choice for some

Silver lasts, on average, between 10 – 15 years and is less expensive than composite fillings

Composite mirrors the look and feel of existing teeth and can be bonded to other teeth to provide additional structural support

Stain-resistant ceramic and porcelain lasts more than 15 years on average

And glass ionomer can be used for fillings below the gum line

Background on Tooth Fillings

The oldest tooth fillings date back almost 10,000 years, and were discovered in a set of molars located in Pakistan.

While beeswax was reportedly the material of choice back then, modern technological advancements have made it so the tooth fillings here at Westshore Dental are cost-effective, long-lasting, and, of course, much sturdier than beeswax would have been.
