At Dental Square, we use only white or tooth coloured restorations. We no longer need to rely on unsightly silver or amalgam fillings due to the evolution of modern dental materials that have become very durable and highly aesthetic.
- Composite Fillings – Tooth coloured fillings or Composite resin fillings are both natural in the way they look and feel. The composite comes in many different shades allowing us to closely match the filling to the shade of the tooth. Once placed on the tooth, the composite is sculpted to mimic the natural contours of the tooth and is then hardened with a special light. The filling is then polished and the end result is an undetectable, aesthetic restoration. The filling is completed in a single visit and the patient can eat, drink, and chew straight away.
- Porcelain Fillings – Inlays or Onlays are restorations that are made of porcelain usually placed in teeth with moderate sized cavities. Far more durable than their composite counterpart, the inlay/onlay is custom fabricated by our ceramist and is then bonded to the surface of the tooth. They are also very effective in protecting the remaining structure of the tooth, thus decreasing the likelihood of needing further treatment such as a crown.
