White Fillings For A Healthy-Looking Smile
White fillings have become a popular choice for restoring decayed teeth. At Green Grove Dental in St. Albert, they are used to replace old silver amalgam fillings that may contain harmful metals. White fillings are made of composite material and are available in several shades to match your natural tooth colour.
How are white fillings placed?
The area around the tooth is numbed with a local anesthetic before the decayed matter is removed and cleaned out of the tooth. The filling material is prepared and inserted into the cavity. It’s shaped to fit the natural contours of your teeth and polished for a smooth finish.
What benefits do white fillings offer?
White fillings are more aesthetically pleasing as they blend naturally with the rest of your teeth. This can make them a better option for visible front teeth when you smile and speak. White fillings also bond directly to the tooth, making them stronger and less likely to fracture or break down over time. And since no metal components exist, they are less prone to temperature sensitivity.
Who should consider white fillings?
White fillings are a good choice for anyone who wants an aesthetically pleasing restoration that looks natural and holds up well over time. They're durable and easy to maintain with regular brushing and flossing.
