White Fillings - Natural and Healthy Restorations
Nobody likes cavities. But unfortunately almost everyone will have to deal with one at some point in their life — no matter how well you brush and floss. Your genetics, the foods you eat, and even the natural bacteria in your mouth all contribute to your risk of tooth decay.
If you do get a cavity, there’s good news. At Graystone Dental Centre we offer natural white fillings. Made from a durable composite material, they’re a great alternative to old-fashioned silver mercury amalgam fillings. Not only are they durable, they look great, too! You’ll be able to smile with confidence.
Don’t forget: At your regular checkup, our cleanings remove plaque and bacteria that brushing and flossing alone just can’t. Plus your hygienist and Dr. Beaulne & Dr. Brown can give tips on how to take care of your teeth and reduce your risk of cavities.
Protect your teeth and your health. Let’s talk about how composite white fillings can help you.
Composite Or Mercury Fillings?
Mercury amalgam is inexpensive and easy to work with. That’s partially why dentists used it as their first (and only) choice for fillings for decades.
But since composite fillings have become available, we’re starting to see their advantages. Composite fillings don’t just look natural; they actually protect your health, too!
When placing a composite filling, we only have to remove a tiny amount of natural tooth structure. The filling actually protects the rest of the tooth against chips, cracks, and fractures.
Plus they look great! We carefully mix the composite material to look just like the rest of your natural teeth. You’ll be able to smile with confidence— nobody will know you have a filling.
