Do you have silver fillings in your teeth that you find uncomfortable or unattractive? Perhaps you’re allergic to the metallic filling itself. At Abitibi Dental Centre we offer our patients with white composite fillings that blend perfectly with your existing teeth.
Not too long ago, amalgam or metallic fillings were the standard filling for dentistry in North America. It was excellent for strength, especially around chewing surfaces and large cavities. The problem is that these fillings were obvious and far too visible to the naked eye. As well, they are often composed of a metallic material that can corrode and leak, leaving the silver filling blackened and often staining the surrounding natural teeth.
Today, we use modern fillings that are made of a porcelain like material that bonds to the tooth for a tight seal. The composite material is durable, and can be used on chewing surfaces, yet lacks the sensitivity often associated with amalgam fillings. Cosmetically, these white fillings are much better, as they are custom colour matched to seamlessly blend with your natural teeth.
At Abitibi Dental, our North York Dentists and team are happy to assist you in all of your oral care needs. Whether you have an existing metallic filling that you want replaced with a composite white filling, or you simply need a new filling altogether, we have you covered.
