White Tooth Fillings & Composite Resin Filling Services In Downtown Ottawa
Functional Aesthetics For A Beautiful Smile
Historically, cavity fillings were made of either amalgam or gold — two metals that were known as the most durable at the time, but were not very aesthetically attractive. In recent years, composite resins have become comparable to both amalgam and gold in terms of durability and longevity. The main difference, however, is that the composite resins are white and can be tinted to match the natural tooth colouring so no one knows they’re even there.
This recent advancement in dental technology has allowed dentists and dental hygienists to finally offer their patients the best of both worlds when it comes to tooth fillings: durability and aesthetics. At Constitution Dental in Downtown Ottawa, we use composite resins exclusively so that each and every one of our patients leaves our dental clinic with a beautiful smile they can feel confident in. White tooth fillings allow us to truly blend the look and feel of them into the natural anatomy of the surrounding teeth, making them virtually invisible to the untrained eye.
We’ll be the first to say that having a cavity filled certainly isn’t the most fun way to spend your time, but with white tooth fillings, you won’t have a glaring reminder that plaque and tartar once ate away at your teeth. In fact, no one will ever have to know — and they wouldn’t be able to tell for themselves unless you pointed it out first. That being said, it is still critical to prioritize your oral health and establish good oral hygiene habits at home between professional teeth cleanings at your local dental clinic.
If it has been six months or more since your last dental appointment, be sure to contact Constitution Dental in Downtown Ottawa today or request an appointment online. Our dentists and dental hygienists would be happy to provide you with an initial consultation where we will determine the health of your teeth and gums. From there, we will schedule routine oral health exams and teeth cleanings in three-month, six-month, or nine-month intervals based on your unique needs. We look forward to seeing you!
