At Northgate Dental Centre in North Burnaby, our dentists use bonded composite fillings, also known as white fillings, to make tooth-coloured restorations for cavities.
Bonded composite fillings are made from materials that are similar in colour to teeth.
They can be used as new fillings for cavities, or to replace old fillings that might need to be removed.
The composite material generally used is made from glass-filled particles in a resin matrix and has a putty-like consistency prior to curing.
Composite resin, the material used to make the fillings, comes in a variety of shades.
We will customize your treatment plan and create a filling to suit your smile.
The material is also very strong and durable, yet easily repaired or resurfaced to maintain your tooth structure. We use LED fast-curing lights to harden the material and create a solid form.
The team at Northgate Dental Centre is looking forward to meeting you!
