Your South Edmonton Choice White Fillings!

White Fillings | Strathcona Dental Clinic | General & Family Dentist | South Edmonton

Whether it is discovered due to pain in your mouth or during a comprehensive dental exam, tooth decay that results in a cavity must be fixed to prevent the damages to the tooth from worsening and potentially leading to root canal treatment or tooth removal. The most common solution for a cavity is a dental filling. White fillings are also used to repair damaged or missing tooth structures from wear or external trauma.

About Dental Fillings

White Fillings | Strathcona Dental Clinic | General & Family Dentist | South Edmonton

Before your tooth can be filled, your Strathcona Dental Clinic dentist will remove all signs of decay and prepare the tooth. The tooth will most often be filled with a tooth-coloured composite polymer that is hardened (cured) using a specialized curing light. In rare and specific situations, such as when it is difficult to maintain a dry field during the procedure, amalgam (silver) filling may still be used.

Dental Fillings are Not a Permanent Solution

White Fillings | Strathcona Dental Clinic | General & Family Dentist | South Edmonton

While dental fillings are highly durable, they are not a permanent solution and eventually will need replacement. During your regular dental check-up/exam, your Strathcona Dental Clinic team will check your digital x-rays and examine your existing dental fillings to determine the integrity of your fillings. Your dentist may recommend replacing fillings if any of the following are discovered:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Loose fillings
  • Recurring decay
