Composite & Porcelain Fillings for Toronto & Area
If you have cavities or other damage to your teeth, Dorval Dental offers fillings in Toronto and similar treatments to help combat the issue. A variety of dental filling materials are available for the procedure, including silver, porcelain, and composite resin. This is an excellent option to improve the look of your teeth and their functioning.
If you'd like to know more about fillings in Toronto, please get in touch with us.
Composite Resin Bonding
One restorative method we offer is composite resin bonding. This can be used on chipped, cracked, discoloured, or misarranged teeth. This chairside procedure begins by lightly etching the surface of your tooth and applying the liquid bonding. The liquid sets, and we then apply the plastic resin, sculpting it to the desired shape. The material is hardened with a high-intensity light and then trimmed, smoothed, and polished.
Porcelain or tooth-coloured fillings are more aesthetically pleasing and offer a longer life-span than composite resin. Porcelain fillings are one of the most common dental ceramics used by dentists. However, these types of fillings are usually more expensive and require two appointments to place.

When to Schedule Your Child’s First Dentist Appointment
Usually, your child’s regular dental visits start after their third birthday. The first visit is short and mostly focuses on getting to know more about your child’s oral health. We carry out a gentle exam of your child’s teeth, and gums take place as well as an x-ray to see the progress of your child’s permanent teeth. We make sure your child is receiving enough fluoride at home and will offer advice on caring for your child’s teeth at home.
First Dentist Visit Tips
To get your child ready for their first dentist visit, we at Dorval Dental offers this advice:
Let your child visit the dentist office before their initial appointment as a little preview
Read books about the dentist and going to the dentist for dental appointments at home
Go over with your child what the dentist might do during their first visit
Speak positively about the whole dental experience to set your child’s mind at ease
At Dorval Dental, we know that some children have a fear of needles and syringes. The Wand is an alternative to regular anesthesia delivery. Pain is often felt when getting a shot for local anesthesia. This pain is usually caused by the anesthesia being injected quickly into the tissue. The Wand, on the other hand, controls the flow rate of the injected anesthesia, slowing it down and offering two to three times more comfort than a traditional syringe. With The Wand, children experience a much more positive dental appointment. In fact, even removing the needle and replacing it with The Wand’s pen-like appearance can make the environment seem a lot less threatening to a child.
To learn more about The Wand and other child-related dental information, call Dorval Dental today.
Tooth Extraction in Toronto
A tooth extraction may be needed for a number of reasons: wisdom teeth are poorly positioned in the gums; a tooth is decayed or damaged beyond repair; or preparation is needed for orthodontic treatment. By booking an appointment at Dorval Dental for tooth extraction in Toronto, we can determine if extraction is the best solution for your dental health needs.
After Extraction Home Care – Keeping Your Smile Healthy
Find simple tips to follow after your tooth extraction:
Bleeding: Place a moist piece of gauze over the empty tooth socket and bite down for 45 minutes to control bleeding.
Blood clots in the empty socket: Don’t dislodge blood clots as they help with healing. Avoid rinsing and spitting for 24 hours and don’t use a straw, smoke, or drink hot liquids.
Swelling: To stop swelling, place ice on your face for 10 minutes and leave off for 20. Repeat the process as necessary for up to 24 hours.
Pain & Medication
Pain medication is okay to take if you experience pain after teeth extraction. Non-prescription pain relievers like acetaminophen or ibuprofen is recommended.
If pain persists after two days you must call the office contact us .
Chew away from the extraction site and stay away from hot liquids and alcoholic beverages for 24 hours. We may recommend a liquid diet for 24 hours after the extraction.
Brushing & Cleaning
Avoid brushing your teeth near the extraction for one day. Beginning 24 hours after the extraction, you can rinse your mouth with salt water (½ teaspoon of salt in a cup of water) after eating and before bed. Do not use commercial mouth rinses.
