Tooth Colored Fillings in Alberta
Metal does not have to be part of your smile.
Fillings made from ceramics can help out a tooth in trouble due to decay or injury, or replace outdated fillings that have caused tooth damage. At Southcentre Dental Clinic in Calgary, Dr. Cload provides tooth-colored fillings so patients can restore original tooth strength and protect teeth from decay and damage. The composite material we use for our white fillings is completely safe and does not carry some of the risks that metal fillings can.
The White Filling Procedure
The white filling procedure is simple. First, any decay is removed from the damaged tooth. Then, the tooth is prepared with a mild solution. The composite material is placed layer by layer, and then hardened with light technology. The filling is then shaped and polished. You’re left with a newer, stronger tooth that can last several years.
For patients who have larger areas of decay than can be corrected with a white filling, a porcelain onlay or inlay may offer a better alternative.
Please see our Composite Fillings Questions page for more details.
