White Fillings- Keeping Your Teeth Pearly White!

At Cornell Dental Centre we offer white fillings.  White fillings have a natural tooth like appearance and can be matched to your natural tooth colour.  Advances in modern dentistry have made the use of metal fillings obsolete in most cases. The solution for many types of cavities today is dental composite bonding.
Amalgam Dental Fillings
Amalgam is commonly referred to as silver fillings because it’s a mixture of metals such as mercury, silver, copper and tin. An amalgam filling may have sensitivity to cold foods and drinks after placement for a few days or even longer. In addition, these silver fillings often discolour the tooth and surrounding gum.
Composite Dental Fillings
Composite fillings consist of plastic and glass particles and closely match your tooth colour. These types of fillings have become very popular because they solidly bond or glue to the tooth; they don’t contain mercury or any other metal like silver fillings and there is less likelihood of sensitivity to cold food and drinks. There is no one right filling for everyone. In most cases your best bet is to follow Dr. Weerasinghe’s recommendation.
Dental Inlays & Onlays
When more than half of your tooth’s biting surface is damaged, a porcelain, gold, or composite resin inlay or onlay may be recommended. The inlay or onlay pieces are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth. An inlay, which is similar to a filling, is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth. An onlay is a more substantial reconstruction, similar to the inlay but extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.

White Fillings Are Most Commonly Used for:

Cosmetic reasons

Patients who prefer mercury-free fillings

Patients with sensitivity to heat or cold – the composite resin doesn’t conduct heat changes as fast as silver or gold

“I find Dr. MiG very friendly and knowledgeable. His staff is equally friendly and knowledgeable. I trust that his office always has our long term dental health in mind when treating us. I have had some poor care at other offices before coming here and one office seemed to always be pushing services and product, and I didn’t feel they had my best interest at heart.”
