Calgary’s Dental Fillings Clinic

Dental fillings are easy and simple!

If you have a cavity that needs a filling, there are different kinds of fillings to do the job. Amalgam are the lowest cost, but composite fillings are by far the most popular. We also specialize in Root Canal treatments too. Contact Brentwood Village Dental Clinic today!

What Are Dental Fillings?

If you have a cavity that needs a filling, there are different kinds of fillings to do the job. The two main fillings we do here at Brentwood Village Dental Clinic are Composite Fillings and Amalgam Fillings.

Your dentist cares about your oral health. If you have any questions or concerns about fillings, talk to your dentist. He or she will advise you on the type of filling that works best in your particular case. Before you get a filling, tell your dentist about changes to your health since your last visit, such as:

  • Are you taking any medications?
  • Do you have allergies?
  • Are you pregnant?

Composite Fillings (tooth-coloured)

Composite fillings are also called plastic or white fillings. To place this filling, your dentist may first give you local anaesthetic (“freezing”) so you do not feel any pain. Your dentist then cleans all decay from the tooth and puts a glue (or bonding material) on the inside of the hole. Composite resin is put into the hole in thin layers. Each layer is hardened with the help of a special light that your dentist holds over the tooth. When the last layer of the filling is hard, your dentist shapes the filling so it looks and feels natural.

Advantages:
  • These fillings will be the same colour as your natural teeth so give a more natural look.
Disadvantages
  • This kind of filling may break more easily than an amalgam filling and may not last as long.
  • Composite fillings cost more than amalgam.

Amalgam Fillings (silver)

Dental amalgam fillings are sometimes called “silver” fillings. Because these fillings are silver in colour, they are primarily used to fill back teeth. They are a mix of metals such as silver, mercury, copper and tin. To place this filling, your dentist may first give you local anaesthetic (“freezing”) so you do not feel any pain. Your dentist then takes out all traces of decay from the tooth and shapes the hole. The amalgam materials are mixed together in a “shaker” and packed into the hole in layers. Unlike a composite filling, which is hardened instantly with a special light, amalgam fillings take time to harden (approximately 24 hours)

Advantages:
  • These fillings are the least expensive type of filling.
  • They last a long time.
Disadvantages:
  • The silver colour may not be aesthetically pleasing.
  • They contain mercury (studies have shown that amalgam fillings do not cause illness; they have been used on people for more than 150 years).

What else should I know?

Root canal treatment may be done in one or two appointments. After root canal treatment, your tooth may be tender for the first week or two. Bad pain or swelling are not common; if this happens, call your dentist or endodontist. You can still get a cavity or gum disease after a root canal. Root canal treatment does not protect your tooth from other types of damage.

With proper care and regular dental visits, the tooth could last as long as your other teeth. There are some cases where everything possible has been done to save a tooth and still the tooth must be extracted (pulled).

Daily Oral Hygiene

Daily Care Of The Mouth Is Important.

Keeping good oral hygiene routine is really important and can prevent the need for any of our services, apart from the checkups of course. Regular, thorough brushing is a very important step in preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Brushing removes the bacteria that promote tooth decay and the plaque that can cause gum disease.

Root Canal Treatment

Lets You Keep Your Tooth.

When a cavity reaches your tooth nerve, a root canal treatment is often needed. This procedure removes all of the nerves from the tooth, which is then subsequently filled in. Everyone at some point in their lives will probably have to have a root canal treatment. Please contact us to learn more about our Root Canal Therapy.

Don’t just take our word for it.
I've been going to Brentwood Village Dental for years now and it's always a great experience for me. I'm always welcomed by the smiling girls up at the front and the wait to get in isn't long. I recently went in for a checkup and cleaning and it was lovely. The girl who was taking care of me was very personable and conversation was funny and great - there's nothing better than having great company while getting your teeth cleaned 😉 I will definitely be back....more regularly and would highly recommend this place!! Thank you Brentwood Village Dental Clinic for being so wonderful time and time again!read more

My son had his wisdom teeth pulled by Dr T Kim and he was absolutely amazing. The instructions were very clear. Dr Kim is polite, thorough and very competent. He even did do a house call to check back on his patient. He has a special way to connect with his patients which put them at ease. We had other dental work done by him, we were equally satisfied with excellent work. We never had complications.read more

Everyone here is so amazing! I have been seeing Dr Orr since I first moved to Calgary about 20 years ago. I come back to him whenever possible because of his wonderful personality and gentle manner. I can't think of a single complaint in all this time about any of the other staff or hygenists I've seen over the years either - stellar team!read more

After my phone told me the dentist office was across from where the sign at the mall says, I called to double check. The feeling I got just from calling the receptionist was that this place was helpful, and patient (what everyone wants out of a dentist office). Upon arrival, the staff were friendly and had me fill out the general survey for new patients. I used to be really great at the dentist until my last visit (at another office) a few years back. My last experience was unpleasant and so I felt a little anxious coming to a new dentist. I let the hygienist (Alona, sp?) know about my past experience and she made sure to get me comfortable in the chair. She was also really nice, so I expected much of the same from the Dr who was going to check for what I thought was going to be a mouthful of cavities (thankfully that wasn't the case). They gave me suggestions for oral care and I was on my way within an hour. They also direct bill which is a GIANT bonus, and are affordable compared to other dental offices in the city.Would recommend 10/10 visiting again and telling my friends 🙂 Thanks for the check up!read more

I had been unable to eat or sleep in days and had a dental infection that 2 rounds of antibiotics was making worse. These were the first people to not treat me like morons because I got an infected tooth ( the hospital at 1 am because I hadn't slept in 3 days for example was completely ignorant). And they helped me. I owe so much to them and still have the tooth in my mouth simply because they actually listened to what I was saying. Everyone assumed neglect where resistance was the issue. Thank you Brentwood Village Dental. I will be back.read more

She is careful and professional in all she does. The entire staff is helpful and greet you with a smile. I booked my next appointment 4 months away to make sure it was with Tara again. I would recommend this clinic to anyone and everyone.read more

My family and I have been patients at this clinic for almost three years. I have been more than pleased with the service, attention and professionalism from Drs. Kim, Tan, Baghdadi and Rodriguez not to mention the dental assistants, receptionists and hygienists. Always so polite and accommodating. Dr. Kim saved my tooth from extraction by performing a filling to it. I am very grateful! Thank you also to Drs. Kim and Tan for being there to help make my younger daughter's visits at the dentist a smooth and positive experience! Very content with your clinic. There is a calm peaceful atmosphere reigning over the clinic.read more
