What Are White Tooth Coloured Fillings?
At Kingsland Family Dental Care, we are pleased to offer white dental fillings, here in our South West Calgary Dental Practice. Tooth-coloured fillings are used to restore the function of teeth that have dental decay, are damaged from trauma, and can also be used as a cosmetic dentistry option for cosmetic bonding treatments. They naturally blend with your existing tooth enamel, creating a more pleasing aesthetic result.
Why We Use Tooth Coloured Fillings
Traditional dental filling materials, which are best known as silver fillings, are not always aesthetically pleasing options for restoring the function of your teeth. White filling materials have been used for over 20 years, and many patients prefer tooth coloured fillings over silver fillings for many reasons. After we prepare your tooth, we will place the white filling material in thin layers, to rebuild the structure of your tooth. A special light is used to completely set the white filling material making it very hard and durable against normal biting forces. Your Kingsland Family dentist will shape and polish the white filling for a smooth finish, and so it bites together correctly against the opposing teeth.
The Benefits of Tooth coloured fillings
The most obvious benefit of tooth coloured fillings is the aesthetic results that our dentists are able to achieve because he is able to blend different shades of white filling material to match the natural remaining tooth structure.
White filling material bonds directly to the tooth’s remaining tooth structure, reducing the instance of breakage and insulating the tooth from temperature changes.
We know that your smile is important to you and restoring damaged and decayed teeth with our South West Calgary Tooth coloured fillings is one of the many dental health services that we offer at Kingsland Family Dental Care.
