Tooth Coloured Fillings

Your Choice for Lloydminster White Fillings!

The Tooth Suite Dental Team is pleased to offer Tooth Suite White Fillings! White fillings are used to restore the function of teeth that have dental decay or have been damaged by trauma and may be used as a cosmetic dentistry option for cosmetic bonding treatments.

What is a Filling?

A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. A cavity for example, is a hole left behind after tooth decay destroys part of a tooth. Removing the decay prevents further damage, but it does not fix the damage to the tooth that already occurred. That is where fillings come in. While materials used for fillings can include gold, porcelain, a composite resin (tooth coloured filling), and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zine), Tooth Suite is pleased to offer tooth coloured fillings.

What is a Tooth coloured Filling?

Tooth-coloured fillings are made of a blend, or composite, of plastic resins and silica fillers. These substances mimic many of the qualities of natural tooth structure, such as wear-residence and translucency. Dental composite also helps strengthen teeth.

Traditional dental filling materials, which are best known as silver fillings, are not always aesthetically pleasing options for restoring the function of your teeth. White filling materials have been used for over 20 years, and many patients prefer white fillings over silver fillings because they better match the natural colour of your teeth, so they are less

What is the Process of a White Filling?

After we prepare your tooth, we will place the white filling material in thin layers to fill the hole in your tooth completely, and essentially rebuild the structure of your tooth. A special light is then used to set the white filling material, making it very hard and durable against normal biting forces. Lastly, the tooth is shaped and polished for a smooth finish, ensuring that it bites together correctly against the opposing teeth. Composite resin fillings look completely natural and restore tooth functionality very effectively.

The Benefits of White Fillings:

  • White fillings offer aesthetic results; they best replicate the colour of your natural teeth. We are able to achieve this because of the ability to blend different shades of white filling material to match the natural remaining tooth structure.
  • White filling material bonds directly to the tooth remaining tooth structure, reducing the instance of breakage and offering the ability to insulate the tooth from temperature changes.
  • They are very durable and last up to 15 years with very good oral hygiene.
  • White fillings are also used to build-up damaged teeth prior to the dental crown, dental bridge, and many other restorative dental procedures.
  • They cost less than gold fillings.
