NW Calgary White Fillings
Traditional dental filling materials, known as silver fillings or amalgam fillings, are outdated and not aesthetically pleasing. White dental fillings have been used for well over 20 years and in that time, advancements in dentistry have proven that white dental fillings are a reliable choice for restoring teeth.
When using White Fillings, our dentist has the ability to blend different shades of white filling material together, to match the natural remaining tooth structure.
Unlike mercury or amalgam fillings, White Filling material bonds directly to the tooth remaining tooth structure, reducing the instance of breakage and insulating the tooth from temperature changes. Less tooth structure is removed during the procedure and for this reason, sometimes you may not need dental freezing when getting a composite filling.
In addition to restoring broken and decayed teeth, White Fillings can also be used to cosmetically enhance the front (anterior) teeth.
