What Are White Fillings?
White fillings are used to restore the function of decayed teeth or teeth damaged from trauma. Fillings may also be used as a cosmetic dentistry option for cosmetic bonding treatments. At Lifepath Wellness Dental, we are pleased to offer mainly white dental fillings here in our Chestermere Dental Practice.
Why We Use White Fillings
Traditional dental filling materials (best known as silver fillings) are not aesthetically pleasing options for restoring the function of your teeth. Instead, white fillings are offered to provide superior aesthetic results while reducing the instance of breakage and insulating the tooth from temperature changes. White filling materials are safe and have been used for over 20 years, and many patients prefer white fillings.
The most obvious benefit of white fillings is the aesthetic results that our dentists are able to achieve because they can blend different shades of white filling material to match the natural remaining tooth structure. The white filling material is applied in thin layers to rebuild the structure of your tooth. Once the filling material is applied, a special light is used to set the white filling material, making it hard and durable against normal biting forces. Your Lifepath Dentist will shape and polish the white filling for a smooth finish so your teeth bite together correctly.
We know that your smile is important to you, and restoring damaged and decayed teeth with our Chestermere White Fillings is one of the many dental health services that we offer at Lifepath Wellness Dental.
