Dental fillings are the most common treatment dentists use to repair damaged or decayed teeth. Here at Trillium Smile Dentistry, we offer our patients beautiful white composite fillings that blend in perfectly with the rest of their smile. However, some patients worry that these fillings may have hidden dangers. Today, we will discuss the safety of composite fillings and discover why dentists consider them completely safe to use.
Sooner or later, nearly every adult will need to visit their dentist for a dental filling. 96% of Canadian adults have some history of cavities, and most develop more than one in their lifetime.
Dentists typically use one of two options to fill in the spots where a cavity has damaged a tooth: silver or white fillings. This guide will help you learn about each type and give you the information you need to choose the right filling for your dental needs.
