Restoring Teeth Discreetly

Tooth Coloured Fillings

Dental fillings are the most common procedure performed, and most people have at least one. A dental filling restores a tooth that has been damaged, decayed, or chipped. They fill cavities from tooth decay so decay doesn't spread, and the tooth structure is protected from further damage. The dental material can also be sculpted to fix damaged teeth.

We use tooth coloured fillings, so these restorations are nearly invisible, unlike amalgam fillings. These are made from a white composite resin material that can matched to your natural tooth colour. Not only are these composite resin fillings nearly invisible, but they securely bond to your natural teeth, need minimal preparation, and can be used for the smallest of areas.

Benefits of Composite Resin Material

Why Choose White Fillings?

Composite fillings are tooth coloured so they are nearly invisible, even on front teeth. At Toronto Smile Centre, we carefully colour match the filling material to your natural teeth. White fillings are durable, lasting for several years. The procedure is simple and minimally invasive. Because the filling material is applied in thin layers and cured, a white filling can be used for tiny holes.

The material is also mouldable, so helpful for more than cavities, and can restore worn or damaged teeth.

Composite fillings are convenient, durable, function well, and are aesthetically pleasing.

  • Amalgam fillings, including silver or gold fillings are more noticeable, especially on front teeth.
  • Ceramic and porcelain fillings need to be custom made and placed during a second dental visit. Overall, composite fillings are aesthetically pleasing, long lasting, and easy and convenient for the patient.

Dental Health Benefits of Composite Fillings

It's critical to get decayed teeth treated as soon as possible, even if it doesn't hurt at the time. This prevents the tooth decay from spreading and making the cavity larger. Untreated, the decay and infection can spread from the surface of the tooth enamel, down to the tooth roots, so a root canal treatment becomes necessary to save the tooth. Infection can also spread and cause abscesses throughout the mouth and other issues. Cavities weaken the tooth structure, too, so it is important to repair the tooth and strengthen it with the filling. Patients don't need to worry that a dental filling will hurt, as a local anesthetic is used. Not treating the tooth is far more painful, especially over time, and will eventually require a visit to the emergency dentist - and a possible tooth extraction.

Having Your Teeth Filled

The White Filling Procedure

Toronto Smile Centre offers white fillings in Toronto, for an easy, convenient process that delivers nearly invisible results for you. The time it will take will depend on the size of the cavity or whether you have multiple cavities, or how much repair your worn or damaged teeth need.

Whether you are having damaged or decayed teeth treated, we will carefully match the composite resin material to your natural tooth colour.

Consultation and Matching

At an initial consultation, your treatment plan and colour match will be discussed. Once that is determined, you will be prepped and given an anesthetic, ready to start the actual procedure.

Application of White Fillings

The decay on the affected tooth or teeth is removed and cleaned out. Your dentist applies a bonding layer first. The composite filling material is applied and moulded as necessary to ensure a good fit.

Layering and Curing

The composite material is applied in thin layers, and needs to be cured with an LED light after each layer is applied. After, your dentist makes any necessary adjustments before polishing your tooth.
