Root Canal Treatment

White (Composite) Fillings

Until recently, dentists filled and sealed cavities exclusively using a silver and mercury amalgam. Unfortunately, these fillings (or restorations) weaken teeth due to the large amount of the original tooth that has to be removed. Modern dentistry has increasingly turned to composite fillings as a strong, safe and more natural looking alternative. Composite fillings utilize a soft white plastic substance that includes a hardening agent.


Pros and Cons of Composite Fillings
The major advantage of these fillings is that they come in a range of shades that closely match the color of an individual's tooth. Due to the increased strength of modern composite material, they can now also be used in the back teeth. Unfortunately, composite fillings are twice as expensive as traditional restorations.

The Filling Procedures
During your initial visit to the dentist, he or she begins by anesthetizing the tooth and removing any remaining filling and / or decay. Once the tooth has been prepared, the dentist places the composite into the tooth, where it binds to the original surface. The process is typically performed in several layers, each layer being cured or hardened through exposure to a hardening light.
