For many years, amalgam “silver” fillings were the only option when it came to restoring teeth affected by tooth decay and cavities. Not only do these dental fillings look unappealing, but they are also known to contain mercury, a toxic, liquid metal. At Thornhill Square Dentistry, we are dedicated to our patients’ smiles and overall health and are proud to offer a safer alternative – tooth-coloured, composite dental fillings. These white dental fillings contain no toxic ingredients and are designed to blend with your child’s smile, making treatment virtually unnoticeable.
Dental fillings are a wonderful option for patients that are suffering from minor tooth decay and cavities and can restore the appearance, function, and health of the tooth while preventing the tooth from experiencing further complications down the road. Left untreated, tooth decay can lead to infected tooth roots, gingivitis, and other oral complications.
When it comes to dental fillings, our patients prefer composite, tooth-colored dental fillings due to their appearance and the fact they don’t contain any toxic materials.
