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. Barkat’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.
