Remember years ago, when you would visit your dentist and find out that you had a cavity even though you couldn't see it. You would schedule an appointment to have it filled and return in a week or so. On your return visit the doctor would fill your tooth to prevent the future problems that could arise from a growing cavity.

Upon looking in a mirror however you would notice that there was an unsightly silver filling.

These metallic filling were standard practice until not so long ago. While these fillings are often unattractive to begin with, over time, the material which makes up the filling corrodes, blackening the silver, and many times the tooth.

If you're embarrassed by old fillings and tired of hiding your smile, talk to us about Composite fillings. Composite fillings are made of a porcelain-like material that actually bonds to the tooth for a tight seal. They are strong, stain-resistant, and colour-matched to the natural tooth, making them virtually 'invisible.'

Teeth filled with Composite fillings usually lack the sensitivity that is often associated with silver fillings. They are especially suited for smaller cavities and for patients who may be allergic to older metal fillings.

During your next visit feel free to ask us whether it is appropriate to replace your silver fillings with virtually 'invisible' composite fillings, your smile will thank you.
