    Dental Fillings

    Types of Dental Fillings We Offer In St. John’s, NL

    Composite

    It is a tooth-colored resin material that is ideal for restoring teeth and fixing cosmetic dental imperfections. It can be molded in the desired way to recreate the shape and contours of your natural teeth. Being tooth-colored, it blends seamlessly and gives aesthetic results.

    Amalgam

    For several decades, amalgam has been the preferred dental filling for restoring teeth due to its strength and durability. It is made of different metals, including silver and mercury. However, many people nowadays don’t prefer amalgam fillings due to their metallic appearance and possible risk of allergies.

    Porcelain

    It is one of the most aesthetic dental materials, as it closely replicates the natural appearance of your teeth. Porcelain dental fillings in St. John’s, NL, are available as inlays and onlays. They are custom-fabricated in a dental lab, ensuring a seamless restoration.

    GIC

    Glass ionomer cement, or GIC, is a white-colored filling that forms a strong bond with the tooth structure. It also releases fluoride to strengthen the tooth structure. Since it is less durable than other materials, we primarily use it for restoring baby teeth and root caries.

    What Is the Procedure for Getting A Dental Filling

    The process starts with a consultation with our dental specialist, followed by an oral exam. We will assess your teeth to determine which type of filling material will best suit your needs.

    First, we will inject a local anesthetic near the damaged tooth to numb the area and minimize discomfort. Next, we will use an electronic device to remove the decayed portion of your tooth. We will ensure to retain as much of the healthy tooth structure as possible.

    After tooth preparation, we will place the desired filling material and sculpt it to match the natural contours of your teeth. For composite fillings, we use a special curing light to harden them. The overall process of dental fillings in St. John’s, NL, usually takes 30 to 45 minutes. At the end, we will smoothen and polish the surface to create a lustrous finish.

    From the moment that I first met Dr. Chedella at his dentist chair, I knew I was in good hands. I had implants started in another country but not finished due to the pandemic. Dr. Chedella did a perfect job in completing the procedure. After waiting 20 months in limbo, I can't thank you enough Dr. Chedella.

    Nice friendly staff. The doctor gave practical, easy advice on every day changes I could make to help my TMJ problem - and it worked! One of the few specialists I’ve seen in years who I didn’t feel was trying to push an expensive device or unnecessary procedure on me - it was refreshing.
