How tooth-coloured fillings can address cavities in the smile

Dental fillings are a common solution for patients who have areas of significant tooth decay. Placing a filling, seals off the area of decay, eliminating the risk of bacteria entering the tooth and causing an infection. At Msmiline Cosmetic Dentistry of Pierrefonds, Quebec, Dr. Ramin Mirmooji and his team provide tooth-coloured fillings for seamless integration into the smile!

What is a dental filling?

A dental filling is a material, such as composite resin or amalgam, used to fill in areas of decay on a tooth. This restores the tooth’s structure and function and protects it from future damage and decay.

Why choose tooth-coloured fillings?

Tooth-coloured fillings are made of composite resin, which can be customized to match the exact shade of your natural teeth for a seamless blend. These fillings also require less removal of healthy tooth structure during placement compared to traditional metal amalgam fillings. Traditional metal amalgam fillings, also known as silver amalgam fillings, are formulated with about 50% mercury. Mercury is harmful to the human body and can result in mercury toxicity. By using composite resin fillings instead of silver amalgam alternatives, patients can also ensure a healthy body. Our team can also replace old fillings with tooth-coloured fillings instead to bring the smile back to health and restore its beauty!

Tooth-coloured fillings, the aesthetic solution to cavities

In the old days, we used to use amalgam, which basically are the silver fillings that we used to place inside your teeth. But with technology, we have advanced and we have come up with products that are much more aesthetic, that are white. You call it bonding, you call it white filling, or you call it composite. Any of those terms are acceptable. Basically, they are very aesthetic, very nice. They are tooth coloured and you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.

What can I expect from my dental filling appointment?

During the appointment, your dentist will first numb the area to ensure your comfort during treatment. The decayed portion of the tooth will then be carefully removed, and the filling material will be placed and shaped to restore the tooth’s original shape. The material is then hardened using a special light. Your dentist may make minor adjustments for optimal biting and chewing efficiency.
