We Want To Be Your Choice for White Fillings in Airdrie!

Grace Family Dental is pleased to offer White Fillings! White tooth-coloured fillings are used to fill cavities in the same way as traditional metal fillings do. However, white fillings are much more natural-looking and less conspicuous than silver amalgam fillings and are made without the substance mercury.

What are Fillings?

Dental fillings are special materials used to restore damaged or decayed teeth back to their normal function and shape. Common materials used for fillings include gold, ceramic, amalgam, composite, and porcelain, among others. Traditional filling materials, which are best known as silver fillings, are not always aesthetically pleasing options for restoring the function of your teeth. White fillings consist of a blend of plastic and glass. They’re invisible, which makes them blend easily with the rest of the undamaged teeth. White fillings mimic many of the qualities of natural tooth structure, such as wear-resistance and translucency. They have been used for over 20 years and many patients prefer them over silver fillings because unlike silver fillings, which can be seen against your teeth, they better match the natural colour of your healthy teeth, so they are almost undetectable.

Are White Fillings Durable?

Dental White fillings are strong, durable, and designed to match your natural tooth structure. These composite resins used for white fillings are comparatively resilient and can withstand bacterial attacks and cavities. However, people with serious oral health issues like gum disease might need to change their fillings every five years.

What is the Process of a White Filling?

After we prepare your tooth, we will place the white filling material in thin layers to fill the hole in your tooth completely, and essentially rebuild the structure of your tooth. A special light is then used to set the white filling material, making it very hard and durable against normal biting forces. Lastly, the tooth is shaped and polished for a smooth finish, ensuring that it bites together correctly against the opposing teeth. Composite resin fillings look completely natural and restore tooth functionality very effectively.

White Fillings may be the answer to the smile you’ve been dreaming of. Grace Family Dental is here to help you get there!
