At Kingsland Family Dental Care, we are pleased to offer white dental fillings, here in our South West Calgary Dental Practice. Tooth-colored 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. Tooth colored fillings naturally blend with your existing tooth enamel, creating a more pleasing aesthetic result.
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 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 remaining tooth structure, reducing the instance of breakage and to insulate 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.
