We all dread going into the dentist with a toothache knowing what the future holds. First, there will be an examination of the tooth followed by that dreaded news that there is, in fact, a cavity.

Mercury-free Tooth Filling in Burlington area

Quick treatment

Receiving a tooth colored filling from Dr. Khanna is going to be quick and painless. Depending on how many fillings you need, you can be in and out of the dentist chair within an hour and back on your feet with no downtime. You will be walking out of Dentistry at LaSalle able to carry on with your day. The process involves a local anesthetic application to your gums to numb the area. This will typically involve a needle, but it’s quick and will feel only like a pinch. Once you are numb, the affected tooth material can be removed, the tooth cleaned, and a tooth colored composite resin applied into the cavity. This resin is shaded to match the color of your surrounding teeth and shaped so that you maintain a natural feeling bite.

Great looking and long lasting

Gold and silver have been used for fillings in the past, which can be unsightly. When you receive a tooth colored filling, you can open your mouth wide for a hearty laugh, to let out a much-needed yawn or even just to chew and anybody who can see will have no idea a filling is even in place. Another great benefit is that the composite resin is long lasting. With proper care (which includes regular brushing, flossing and rinsing) a composite resin filling can last up to 10 years and, sometimes, even longer. It is important to avoid some potential bad habits to make this a reality. Some of these habits include chewing on hard objects, ice, or anything else hard which could dislodge the filling.

Mercury free

Patients who, in the past, have received silver amalgam fillings carry around a trace amount of toxic mercury in their mouth. The amount of mercury in these fillings is very little but, even still, many patients are now looking for a mercury-free alternative that tooth-colored composite resins offer.

Dentistry at LaSalle - reviews

"Great first experience with this clinic. I've had a few terrible experiences at dentists and this time I left pain free. I had to have a filling redone. The first time it was done it was at another clinic and I had a month's worth of pain after. Today, I had to have it redone. No pain after the freezing wore off. Clinic staff are friendly and polite as well as both dentists and hygienists I saw."
