Restore the health of your smile without sacrificing its appearance with white fillings!
Old, conventional amalgam (silver) fillings have been used in dental care for over 100 years – they are effective, however, have a conspicuous silver appearance that is unappealing to many. This is why we have remained up-to-date on the newest technology and are able to use more aesthetically pleasing white fillings instead!
What are white fillings?
White fillings are made from a composite resin material that can be colour-matched to the exact shade of your tooth enamel, rendering them virtually invisible. At Extreme Dentistry, we are happy to offer this treatment as it allows us to restore your smile with a solution that does not compromise quality, care or your appearance.

Tooth-coloured fillings, also known as composite fillings, offer numerous advantages over traditional amalgam fillings. They provide superior aesthetics by blending seamlessly with natural teeth, require less removal of healthy tooth structure, bond directly to the tooth for added strength, and are versatile for use in both front and back teeth. Additionally, they reduce sensitivity, eliminate the concern of mercury exposure associated with amalgam fillings, and can be easily repaired if damaged. Tooth-coloured fillings are considered a more biocompatible option, do not expand with temperature changes, and maintain their appearance over time, making them a popular choice for many dental restorations.
Tooth-coloured fillings are designed to blend in with the natural colour of your teeth, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The composite resin material used in these fillings can be matched to the shade of your surrounding teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable. When properly placed by a skilled dentist, tooth-coloured fillings can seamlessly blend in with your smile, giving the appearance of a natural tooth.
Tooth-coloured fillings, also known as composite fillings, should feel comfortable in your mouth. The composite resin material used in these fillings is carefully applied and shaped to match the natural contours of your tooth. Dentists take special care to ensure that the filling is properly adjusted and polished to provide a smooth and even surface.
Once the filling is placed, you may experience a temporary sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, but this should subside shortly after the filling settles. It is also normal to feel some mild sensitivity or discomfort in the treated tooth for a few days. However, if you experience persistent pain, sharp discomfort, or any other concerning symptoms, it is important to contact your dentist to have the filling evaluated.
Overall, tooth-coloured fillings are designed to provide a comfortable and functional restoration in your mouth, allowing you to chew, speak, and go about your daily activities without any major discomfort.
