For many years, dentists have used fillings to restore teeth. Non-metal fillings have come a long way in the past few decades and are now made to be virtually indistinguishable from your existing teeth. Southridge Dental’s three on-staff dentists have years of experience using non-metal fillings to restore the oral health of our patients in Lethbridge and across southern Alberta. Non-metal fillings can be placed to fill spaces in your teeth where a dentist has removed decayed or fractured tooth structures.
Non-metal fillings have many advantages over their metal counterparts. Depending on temperature, silver amalgam fillings can expand or contract and cause pressure and sensitivity in your teeth. Non-metal fillings look great and won’t cause the discomfort associated with silver amalgam fillings.
