In the past, dentists used metal fillings to fill in cavities. Today, white or tooth-coloured fillings (often called composite fillings) are available. At Sundance Dental in Calgary, we offer white or composite fillings, made of natural looking tooth-coloured resin.
Advantages to White or Composite Fillings
White or composite fillings offer many advantages to dental patients. First, these fillings resemble your natural teeth. They also cost less than gold fillings, and most simple white fillings can be applied in just one appointment.
Disadvantages to White or Composite Fillings
While white fillings do offer a host of benefits, there are some disadvantages. For example, white fillings can break more easily than gold or amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings cost less than white fillings.
