What are fillings?

Fillings are used to restore the function and/or appearance of missing tooth structure. Tooth loss typically results from cavities or external damage.  Placing a filling involves inserting a soft or malleable filling material into a prepared tooth and building up the tooth before the material hardens.  Our clinic uses white composite fillings that are colour-matched to your tooth to ensure a natural appearance.

Does my insurance cover fillings?

Coverage will vary from policy to policy, but most plans will offer at least partial coverage for dental fillings.  We can confirm your plan coverage at your next appointment.

    1. Hi Chantal, thank you for contacting us. The cost of fillings varies depending on the type of tooth (incisors, premolars vs molars), and the size of the cavities (how many surfaces of the tooth). Unfortunately, it’s not possible to provide exact pricing without seeing the tooth and x-ray first. We will contact you directly to see if we can assist you further.
