Tooth FillingAn Overview
Dental fillings are a standard general dental procedure that can be used to address minor tooth damage or tooth decay. Used to restore the stability of an infected tooth, dental fillings help to prevent further deterioration or tooth loss. Villanova Dental Studio uses only cosmetic white dental fillings for their aesthetic results and safety.
White Fillings V. Metal Fillings: What to Consider
Dr. Barakat’s Stittsville dentist office has been metal free for over 7 years. We use metal-free fillings for the health and aesthetic benefits.
Villanova Dental Studio is a metal free dentist office in Ottawa, ON. Our dental fillings are made from high-quality composite resin and are colour matched to the natural tooth. White fillings are more aesthetically pleasing, durable and can prevent further damage to the tooth.
Cosmetic white fillings are:
- Mercury free
- Will not leach metal into surrounding areas
- Do not expand and contract weakening teeth
- Blend seamlessly with the smile for beautiful results
Dr. Barakat may recommend replacing old metal fillings with white resin fillings for a more aesthetically pleasing smile and improved dental health. Metal fillings, especially when in the “smile-zone” may cause a patient to feel self-conscious of their smile. Replacing metal fillings with white fillings can improve oral health and self-confidence.

Tooth Filling What to Expect
The tooth filling procedure is completed with minimal discomfort and in one visit to our Stittsville, ON dentist office. You may receive a local anesthetic for your optimal comfort during the filling.
The decay will be removed from the infected tooth. Then the tooth is cleaned and filled with a special composite filling that will be color matched to your tooth. Using a blue light, the material will be cured for a natural looking and durable result.
Depending on how advanced the decay is, your Villanova dentist may recommend laser therapy for the treatment of tooth decay.
For patients with dental anxiety, we offer sedation dentistry options. Treating tooth decay can help patients avoid root canals or tooth extraction and early diagnosis is essential. Using oral sedation or nitrous oxide, your dentist can help you completely relax so you may receive the dental care you need, anxiety free. Your dentist will discuss the benefits of sedation dentistry and your medical history, working with you to choose the option that is best for your safety and personal needs.
