Dr. Snehal Shah – your Langley dentist – offers white fillings for a
natural-looking, metal-free, beautiful smile.
White Fillings are ideal for patients who are sensitive to metal and are concerned about the mercury content of an amalgam filling, or who simply want to preserve a natural-looking, metal-free, beautiful smile. Composite or white fillings are made from a tooth-colored material that restores the natural appearance of a decayed or previously metal-filled tooth cavity. These fillings blend perfectly with your tooth enamel. A white dental filling typically requires only one dental visit, during which the tooth or teeth are prepared and restored with white tooth fillings. An advantage of white tooth fillings, compared to other dental restorations, is that they need less of the healthy part of a tooth to be removed to hold the filling in position. This is due to the filling’s composite material being capable of bonding to the teeth more tightly.
At Jericho Dental Centre in Langley, BC, Dr. Shah educates her patients about the problem, the different treatment options, and their benefits. She uses evidence-based dentistry to help them make informed decisions. After a detailed and informed discussion, she’s happy to treat patients according to their preferences. Both types of fillings are available at her dental office.
