White Fillings
 

 

 

White composite fillings are made to match the colour of the teeth. These fillings are not always  covered by dental plans. Please check you plan carefully or ask us about them.

Silver Before

As you can see in the picture above, the very last tooth has a silver amalgam on it. (The second last tooth has a porcelain fused to metal crown and the third last tooth has another amalgam filling on it). This filling had a cavity underneath it and needed to be replaced. We decided to replace it with a white composite filling. The green around the tooth is the rubber dam which is very important when placing a composite filling because it keeps the area clean. Any contamination will reduce the "bond" between the tooth and the filling. The stronger the bond, the longer the filling will last and the less sensitive it will be.
