Dental Fillings Oshawa WhitbyDental Fillings in Oshawa and Whitby

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.

However, 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. There are also people who have an allergy to mercury, which is found in the silver amalgam. We now offer composite fillings as an alternative for people that have allergies or for those who want to maintain their beautiful smiles.

Composite fillings, or white fillings, are an effective, durable, and attractive way to fill cavities and strengthen a decayed tooth. Cosmetic fillings are made from composite resin material that restores teeth to their most natural appeance. The material used in this cosmetic dental sevice is carved into the appropriate cavity shape while it is still soft, and then hardened with a curing light. Polishin ensures a smooth surface that looks and feels like your natural tooth. Composites are attractive and very durable, lasting several years without posing the threat of further damage.


If you're unhappy with the silver in your smile, talk to us about white/composite fillings by contacting our Oshawa dental office or Whitby dental office.
