White Fillings

Teeth White Fillings & Dental Clinic in Ottawa

Traditionally, dental fillings were made exclusively of amalgam. Later on, gold fillings were introduced. Today, so called "white fillings" are becoming increasingly popular with both dentists and patients alike. White fillings are made of composite resins - a material that has two important characteristics (advantages). One, it is aesthetically pleasing because it can be perfectly matched with the patient's natural tooth color, making the restoration virtually invisible. Two, composite resin is as strong and durable as its metallic counterparts. In other words, white fillings are pretty and functional and they can easily give our patients that much desired white and sparkling smile.
