Replace your silver fillings in Oshawa and Whitby - Tooth Coloured FillingsTooth Coloured Filling

Do you have silver fillings in your smile?
Do they cause you to hide your teeth when you speak?

Amalgam or metallic filling were the standard practice until not so long ago in dentistry. The amalgam was needed for its strength, especially on chewing surfaces and for large cavities.

Amalgam fillings have several downsides;
Their metalic colour highlights the cavity letting everyone know that a restoration has been done. The material which they are composed of can corrode and leak blackening the silver and often the tooth.

If you're unhappy with the silver in your smile, talk to us about white/composite fillings.

White or Composite fillings are made of a material that bonds to the tooth for a tight seal. The material is strong enough for chewing surfaces and lacks the sensitivity associated with amalgam fillings. Cosmetically white fillings are colour-matched to your natural tooth, making them virutaully unnoticable.
