Composite Dental Fillings
A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
Tooth Decay Prevention
Do you think you have a cavity and need a dental filling in Regina? Look no further than Cathedral Dental. We strive to make your dental filling or tooth restoration as quick and painless as possible. We all know tooth decay and cavities can be painful but it can also lead to worse infections if not treated properly. The good news is that tooth decay is also the most preventable disease in the world today.
At Cathedral Dental we use the latest technology to diagnose, treat and prevent tooth decay. We also strive to educate our patients on proper dental hygiene so that they can help themselves in preventing decay.
What You Should Know About Dental Fillings
The dental industry has evolved and we no longer recommend silver as often as the filler in tooth decay. The problem with silver is that it can contain a percentage of mercury and they are more noticeable in your mouth. Silver and metal fillings can also expand and contract over time as you expose them to hot and cold temperatures. This can lead to exposed pockets around the filling and the tooth. Food and sugar can then get trapped in these little pockets causing further tooth decay. Tooth-colored restorations composed of resins and/or porcelain are a better alternative to metal fillings. These types of materials act as an aesthetic filler (who wants a bunch of metal in their mouth) and can actually help strengthen the tooth. For mercury free fillings, contact us today!
