Fillings at Morton Dental

Cavities are bacterial infections inside of your teeth. If left alone, they gradually expand further into your tooth and adjacent teeth. To preserve as much healthy enamel as possible, we recommend treating tooth decay early with a minimally invasive white filling at Morton Dental.

White (composite) fillings are matched to your natural teeth, making them seem invisible because they blend in with the structures around them. They’re a great alternative to silver amalgam restorations, especially when treating teeth that are visible when you smile. Plus, they’re entirely free of mercury.

Do I Have a Cavity?

The key is to catch it early enough that we can fill your tooth before pain or other symptoms start to exist. Smaller fillings aren’t just better for your teeth; they’re also more affordable!

Let us know if you’re currently experiencing any of the following tooth decay symptoms:

  • Sensitivity to temperature changes
  • Pain when chewing or eating certain types of foods
  • A sharp or dull ache in a specific tooth
  • Visible discolouration
  • Feeling a rough edge with your tongue
  • Feeling food getting caught between or inside your teeth
  • Floss catching or shredding around a tooth
  • Localised areas where your gums bleed easily

The only way to know for certain whether you have a cavity is for our dentist to examine the tooth and take an X-ray of the area. On the image, we can see into the tooth structures to determine if there is any damage not visible from the outside. From there, we’ll assess the extent of the decay and recommend an appropriate filling.

Reducing the Cost of Your Dental Care

Small white fillings are an affordable way to protect your smile’s health and avoid more intensive treatments in the future. When left untreated, active decay will ultimately expand to the point where a crown or root canal is necessary to treat it.

Our affordable pricing makes it possible to get the care your family needs in the timeliest fashion. Plus, we offer flexible payment options to help you fit necessary treatment into your budget so that you don’t have to put it off longer than you ought to.
