Composite Fillings

What is a Composite Filling?

A composite filling is a material used in dentistry to restore teeth for several issues such as tooth fractures, cracks, tooth decay, and even cosmetic procedures. The portion of the affected tooth is removed using a drill and then replaced with composite filling materials which is then polished and contoured to match the appearance of  natural teeth. In modern dentistry, the shade of the filling material is closely matched to the natural shade of the patients tooth to achieve the most aesthetic results. Composite materials are widely used in dentistry and is Dr. Grin’s preferred method over silver amalgam fillings for both its aesthetic compound as well as a safer alternative in regards to the mercury found in amalgam fillings. Composite fillings are very durable and will last several years in a patient with healthy oral hygiene.

What Are the Benefits of Composite Fillings?

  • Same colour as natural teeth
  • Direct fillings – can be completed in one visit with immediate results
  • Non-invasive
  • Pain free
  • Less removal of tooth structure is removed with composite fillings

How Much Does a Composite Filling Cost?

The cost of the filling is determined by the surfaces required to fill, this diagnosis is best determined by the treating dentist. 0% interest monthly payment plans are available for patients to take advantage of for extensive treatment.

My wife and I travel from Caledon to see Dr. Girn. We've been patients of the office for well over 10 years now and have been treated like family since we became patients. Dr. Girn genuinely cares about his patients and is so generous with his time, always explaining everything thoroughly. Throughout the years I've had several fillings done by Dr. Girn, and aside from his aesthetic skills, the actual procedure is always painless and comfortable. A sincere thank you to Dr. Girn and team for always providing us with care and respect.

Dr. Girn and his staff are awesome! My whole family comes to the office, we've been patients for over 10 years now. My youngest daughter is terrified of the dentist but her favourite part about coming to see Dr. Girn is getting to choose a toy from the treasure chest when she's done her appointment! I have 3 kids with very different personalities and Dr. Girn and his staff are skilled in catering to each of their needs. Dr. Girn has done fillings on my whole family, including myself, and he is the only dentist we trust with any of our dental work. Thank you Dr. Girn and Home of Dentistry for years of service!
