Composite Dental Fillings Calgary

Composite Dental Filling in Calgary

Composite Dental Filling in CalgaryDental fillings are used to fill small holes or cracks in the teeth. Various materials such as amalgams or composites can be used in these cases. We do not use amalgam fillings in our office due to the possibility of teeth cracking that can be caused by the expansion and contraction of this material and possibly leakage into the tooth structure. As an alternative, we use a composite material which is biocompatible and composed of a plastic and glass particle substance. This material is provided in many shades to match your existing teeth. Benefits of these materials are that they bond to the tooth and increased strength and durability.

Fillings may be diagnosed for various reasons including, treating decay or repairing cracked or chipped teeth to repair decay.


Am I a suitable candidate for composite dental fillings?

Tooth-coloured resins do not contain filling materials that cause side effects or allergic reactions, such as mercury, chromium, nickel, and/or beryllium alloys. In fact, there are no documented cases of sensitivities or allergic reactions to a composite resin, which makes it the ideal filling material for all kinds of people.

That said, it is best to visit your dentist for an initial consultation so you can be informed about all the materials available for dental fillings, their benefits, and side effects, before making your decision.
