White Tooth Fillings at Arena Dental

Today’s dental fillings serve a two-fold purpose: repairing areas of active tooth decay while enhancing the appearance of your smile. Since each restoration is made of tooth-coloured composite, there’s no concern about leaving an unsightly metal filling behind.

Do You Need a Filling?

The sooner tooth decay is diagnosed, the smaller your filling will need to be. Regular checkups and periodic X-rays make it possible to pinpoint cavities early, but be sure to let us know if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Sensitivity to temperature changes or sweets
  • Rough edges you can feel with your tongue
  • Floss or food catching around specific teeth
  • Pain when you bite down
  • Visible dark areas
  • Something feeling “off”

Tooth-Coloured Dental Fillings

Each of our composite restorations is hand-selected to match the colour of the tooth that’s being treated. As a result, your new filling blends in with your smile and isn’t noticeable to other people.

During your treatment, we’ll gently numb the tooth that’s being filled so that you won’t have to feel any discomfort. Dr Rocco Arena (Dentist) is known for his gentle techniques, so we can help to put your mind at ease and achieve a comfortable experience.

Minimally Invasive to Your Teeth

Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of white fillings — aside from their colour — is the way they bond to enamel. Conventional metal fillings are held in place by cutting a notch into the tooth and wedging the amalgam into place. With a composite restoration, the material bonds directly to the tooth. White fillings are less invasive and can be placed almost anywhere throughout your mouth.
