At Scenic Acres Dental Centre, we use white fillings to restore decayed and damaged teeth. Depending on where the tooth is located in your mouth, they can be a good option when you want your filling to match the color of the surrounding teeth. They provide a natural-looking option that is also reliable, reasonably priced, and durable.

Why We Use White Fillings
White filling materials have been used now for over 20 years, and many patients prefer white fillings over silver amalgam fillings for many reasons. While slightly more expensive than Silver Amalgam fillings, most people prefer them as they can look completely natural.
After we prepare your tooth, we will place the white filling material in thin layers, to 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.
The Benefits of White Fillings
- White fillings offer aesthetic results; 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 to insulate the tooth from temperature changes.
- White fillings are also used to build-up damaged teeth before the need for a dental crown, dental bridge, and many other restorative dental procedures.
- These fillings can generally be done in one appointment, in most cases.
- These fillings can cost less than gold fillings.
