White fillings used to restore the function of teeth that have dental decay, have been damaged from trauma and may be used as a cosmetic dentistry option for cosmetic bonding treatments. At South Family Dental Care, we are pleased to offer only white dental fillings, here in our South Calgary Dental Practice.
Traditional dental filling materials, which are best known as silver fillings, may not be the most aesthetically pleasing option to you for restoring the function of your teeth. White filling materials have been used for over 20 years, and many patients prefer white fillings over silver fillings for many reasons. After your South Family dentist prepares your tooth, they will place the white filling material in thin layers, to rebuild the structure of your tooth. A special light is used to completely set the white filling material making it very hard and durable against normal biting forces. Your dentist will shape and polish the white filling for a smooth finish and so it bites together correctly against the opposing teeth.
The most obvious benefit of white fillings is the aesthetic results that your dentist is able to achieve because he can blend different shades of white filling material to match the natural remaining tooth structure.
White filling material bonds directly to the tooth remaining tooth structure, reducing the instance of breakage and to insulate the tooth from temperature changes.
We know that your smile is important to you and restoring damaged and decayed teeth with our South Calgary White Fillings is one of the many dental health services that we offer at South Family Dental Care.
Dental Crowns are a reliable dental restoration that is used to restore the function of teeth that have large restorations or have had root canal treatment. At South Family Dental Care, we are pleased to offer all-ceramic dental crowns to restore function while maintaining the natural aesthetics of your teeth.
Dental Crowns are the preferred treatment option for teeth that have fillings that become larger than the natural tooth structure. In addition to large fillings, teeth that have undergone root canal therapy and teeth that suffer from reoccurring tooth decay benefit from Dental Crowns.
Dental Crowns are custom made using a variety of materials. Dr. Angela Sharma uses ceramic porcelain; Zirconia based porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, full cast metal and traditional gold dental crowns and suggests the best type of dental crowns for your needs based on various factors such as aesthetics, where the crown is used in your mouth, your dental habits, conditions such as teeth grinding, and your personal preference. A complete assessment will is used to determine the best dental crown for your situation.
Your teeth have undergone Root Canal Therapy. After root canal therapy, teeth become brittle and are more susceptible to fracture. Root canaled teeth need to be protected with dental crowns.
Your appointment for dental crowns involves shaping the tooth to fit your new crown. We obtain a detailed impression that is sent to our dental laboratory, where your custom crown is created by a professional lab technician.
