White Dental Fillings

Even when you eat right, drink a lot of water and brush your teeth daily, there’s still a chance for tooth decay to sneak up on you unexpectedly. Thanks to regular exams and modifying your oral hygiene plan, you can lower your risk of getting cavities. But when you do, rest assured that we use the least-invasive and most aesthetic materials available for your new dental filling.

Composite (White) Fillings

happy couple smilingWhen you have a cavity, it spreads through your tooth enamel into deeper layers of your teeth or to adjacent ones. By removing it and placing a composite filling, we can repair the area that’s been damaged and stop it from expanding.

Tooth-coloured composite fillings offer many advantages over conventional metal restorations, including:

  • Being mercury free
  • Blending in with your smile’s natural colour
  • Less invasive to your tooth structure
  • Bonding capabilities that allow the material to be placed in more areas
  • Ideal for people of all ages

Inlay and Onlay

If your cavity is quite large, a traditional filling won’t withstand the everyday use of biting and chewing. Because inlays and onlays are larger than a filling but smaller than a dental crown, they’re ideal for repairing teeth with moderate to severe decay.

Keeping You Comfortable

Getting your first filling can make some people feel a bit anxious. Fortunately, we offer nitrous oxide sedation to help you feel at ease. We’ll thoroughly numb your tooth prior to removing the cavity, so you can sit back and relax.

Symptoms of Tooth Decay

How can you know if you have a cavity? You may be experiencing symptoms of occasional sensitivity, throbbing, pain associated with temperature changes, difficulty biting down or a sharp twinge if you eat something sweet.

But not all cavities hurt. If something feels rough to your tongue or ‘off’ from normal, it’s time to schedule an exam.
