Restore Dental Cavities With Tooth-coloured Fillings
Suppose you open your mouth wide; will the other people around you notice the number of times you have been at a dentist’s chair for dental cavity fillings? In case your entire mouth is sprinkled with silver fillings, perhaps it’s time to consider having these fillings replaced with excellent tooth-coloured fillings. Our cosmetic dentist performs this dental procedure to keep our patients’ smiles looking pearly white and beautiful despite any tooth damage or decay they had previously.
Treating Tooth Decay And Cavities
At Molson Park Dental Office, our priority is to keep your teeth healthy while preserving and improving the overall beauty of your smile. Tooth-coloured filling options allow the dentist to successfully treat tooth decay such that no one will ever notice you had dental cavities or tooth damage previously. Our doctors can successfully hide the different signs of tooth decay using porcelain veneers (inlays or onlays) and composite fillings.
White or tooth-coloured fillings are used the same way as silver amalgam dental fillings. The decaying tissue is removed, and the resulting cavity is filled with a resin material that looks like a putty. The resin colour is matched to your natural teeth colour to ensure it doesn’t stand out. Some patients prefer having their existing silver fillings removed and replaced with naturally-coloured fillings. Our team of dentists can perform this procedure effectively and safely.

Porcelain Inlays & Onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays can be used if your tooth has suffered extensive decay or damage that cannot be fixed using regular dental filling but not severe enough to necessitate a dental crown. Instead of covering the entire tooth with a dental crown, porcelain inlay can correct the tooth’s indented space, while porcelain onlays can be used where the problems are on the tooth’s ridges or cusps.
Our team of highly experienced dentists uses high-quality porcelain materials when fitting a patient with dental inlays or onlays. Keep in mind that these are custom-made items created in a laboratory for an absolutely precise fit and natural colour that matches your tooth. Some of the advantages of porcelain onlays and inlays include:
- Porcelain material doesn’t contract or expand with changes in temperature. This eliminates the possibility of a tooth fracture.
- Porcelain material bonds effectively with a patient’s tooth. This provides additional strength.
- Porcelain material looks more natural compared to silver dental fillings.
