Timothy G. Mahoney, DDS Patients Have A Choice In Dental Fillings

Wetaskiwin Dental Patients Want A Choice In Dental Fillings

With all the talk in Wetaskiwin of multi-procedure smile makeovers involving veneers, porcelain crowns, bridges, teeth whitening, dental implants, and invisible braces, sometimes the traditional dental filling is overlooked.

If a cavity progresses no further than a filling, cosmetic dental patients can avoid more extensive and invasive treatments. Today, let’s talk about dental fillings.

Most dental patients have a few fillings in their mouth. When a tooth has been damaged through decay, a dental filling is the most common way Alberta family dentists restore the tooth to its previous, intact condition.

Dental fillings have been used for over a hundred years, and they’ve come a long way from the silvery amalgam fillings many of us remember.

Wetaskiwin cosmetic dentists and dental labs have been working to formulate filling materials that are more cosmetically pleasing to their Alberta patients.

Today, the filling material of choice in Wetaskiwin and around the country is a composite of plastic resin with glass or quartz filler. Referred to as composite fillings, dental patients love the fact that they can be matched to their natural tooth color, making them practically invisible. This is particularly important when the filling needs to be in a conspicuous part of the mouth, such as the front teeth.

Despite the popularity of tooth-colored fillings, many dentists still find amalgam fillings appropriate in some cases. Dental amalgam is made from a metal alloy, which gives it the ability to hold strong even when the chewing load is great.

I’m Dr. Tim Mahoney and I work hard to make sure each patient feels comfortable during their dental visit. I’ve practiced dentistry since 1983, and I find it especially rewarding when Leduc, Camrose, and Ponoka residents experience renewed confidence after a smile makeover.

Whether you are interested in replacing metal fillings with composites, or if you want to discuss tooth whitening and veneers, our staff would be happy to answer any questions you have.
