Say Goodbye To Silver Metal Fillings
And Say Hello To White Fillings.

At Magis Dental we understand that sometimes cavities can happen and we are always here to help our patients. We pride ourselves in our capacity to provide our patients with the most technologically advanced and cosmetically beneficial treatments available; our white composite fillings will have your smile perfectly put together.

For several decades, dentists have solely utilized the silver-mercury amalgam (metal) filling to repair their client’s teeth and cavities. Today, however, at Magis Dental, our dentist have a much better way to fix cavities; with tooth-colored composite fillings.

When compared to traditional silver fillings, white fillings are a much better option for several reasons:

  1. First of all they are much smaller and therefore require less removal of the existing tooth structure. Heavy silver fillings are notoriously problematic and often break off or fall out completely.
  2. Installing metal fillings into the tooth can actually weaken the existing tooth. White fillings are much less dense, which helps to prevent chips and cracks in the replaced tooth.
  3. The composite resin material is biocompatible and 100% non-toxic. It is by far the healthiest option for our patients.
  4. The white composite filling is color matched to the existing teeth so no one will see your filling the next time you smile.

Sometimes despite even the best efforts, cavities can occur and when they do, our team is here to help.

There are several types of cavities, also known as dental caries, that can affect individuals. Treatment options can vary based on the severity and location of the cavity. Here’s a list of common types of cavities and their treatments:

  1. Coronal Cavities: These are the most common type and occur on the chewing surfaces or between teeth.
    • Treatment: Small cavities can be treated with dental fillings (composite or amalgam). Larger cavities may require a dental crown if significant tooth structure is lost.
  2. Root Cavities: These occur on the roots of teeth, often in older individuals where gum recession exposes the roots.
    • Treatment: Similar to coronal cavities, root cavities can be filled with dental materials. In severe cases, a root canal procedure may be necessary to remove infected tissue and restore the tooth.
  3. Recurrent Cavities: These form around existing dental restorations, such as fillings or crowns.
    • Treatment: Treatment involves removal of the old filling or crown and placement of a new restoration. In some cases, the cavity may be larger, requiring additional intervention like a crown or root canal.
  4. Pit and Fissure Cavities: These form in the deeper grooves and crevices on the chewing surfaces of teeth, especially molars.
    • Treatment: Dental sealants are often used to prevent these types of cavities. If a cavity does develop, it may require a filling or other restoration.
  5. Smooth Surface Cavities: These occur on the flat surfaces of teeth and are often caused by plaque buildup.
    • Treatment: These cavities can usually be treated with dental fillings.
  6. Secondary Cavities: These form around the margins of existing dental work, such as fillings or crowns.
    • Treatment: Treatment involves removal of the old filling or crown and replacement with a new restoration.
  7. Rampant Cavities: These are multiple cavities that develop rapidly across many teeth, often due to poor oral hygiene or diet.
    • Treatment: Treatment may involve a combination of dental fillings, crowns, or even extractions depending on the severity and number of cavities.

It’s important to note that prevention through good oral hygiene practices (such as brushing twice daily, flossing, and regular dental check-ups) is crucial in avoiding cavities. Additionally, early detection and treatment of cavities can help prevent further complications and preserve tooth structure. Always consult with a dentist for proper diagnosis and treatment recommendations tailored to your specific oral health needs.
