Composite Fillings from Port Perry Dental Repair Damaged Teeth
What are composite fillings?
A composite, tooth-coloured filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
We can closely match the colour of your existing teeth with your composite filling!
There are many types of composite filling materials available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Our Port Perry dentists will discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. Because composite fillings are tooth-coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth. They are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may have to be replaced at some point. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
Reasons for composite fillings:
- Chipped teeth
- Closing space between two teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth

Porcelain Bridges, Fixed Dental Bridge in Port Perry
Replace missing teeth with porcelain fixed bridges
A dental bridge is a fixed, non-removable appliance that is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of dental bridges. Port Perry Dental Associates will discuss the best options for your case. The traditional bridge is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal.
Porcelain fixed dental bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring, abutment teeth. The crowns are attached to pontics, or artificial teeth, filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are another effective way to replace one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years, however they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons for a fixed dental bridge:
- Fill space of missing teeth
- Maintain facial shape
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
- Restore your smile
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance
