White fillings

Port Hope Dental - White Fillings Do you have silver fillings in your smile?
Do they cause you to hide your teeth when you speak?
Are you allergic to metallic filling?


Amalgam or metallic filling were the standard practice until not so long ago in dentistry. The amalgam was needed for its strength, especially on chewing surfaces and for large cavities. The material from which these fillings are composed can corrode and leak, blackening the filling, and often the tooth.

If you're unhappy with the silver in your smile, talk to our Port Hope dental team about white fillings.


White or Composite fillings are made of a porcelain-like material that actually bonds to the tooth for a tight seal. The material is strong enough for chewing surfaces and lacks the sensitivity associated with amalgam fillings. Cosmetically, white fillings are colour-matched to your natural tooth making them almost invisible.
