Tooth Coloured Fillings, Reshaping & Gum Contouring in Kanata

As a cosmetic dentistry Ottawa and area patients have trusted since 1996, Kanata North Dental Office provides a range of options to meet your unique needs. Included in our available procedures are tooth coloured fillings, teeth reshaping and gum contouring.

Tooth Coloured Fillings

As with any filling, tooth coloured (or white) fillings are used to restore a tooth. A tooth coloured filling is made of white resin that can be matched closely to your natural teeth colour. Tooth coloured fillings can fill a cavity and restore a chipped or cracked tooth.

Why Choose Tooth Coloured Fillings?

  • Can be used for a very small restoration
  • Will match tooth colour and is practically invisible
  • Resistant to hot and cold extremes
  • Bonds to the tooth and does not weaken the tooth as a dental amalgam might do
  • Hardens in minutes
  • Doesn't loosen or fall out
  • Compatible with dental sealants
  • Mercury-free

A tooth coloured filling can be completed in a single appointment. Here is the procedure:

  • The first step is to remove decay, if there is any. A tooth coloured filling will require a smaller hole than a conventional dental amalgam
  • The second step is to prepare the tooth which includes cleaning, applying primer and bonding agent
  • The third step is to layer the resin until it can be shaped to fit surrounding teeth. It is cured with a high-intensity light. Final adjustments complete the procedure

Tooth coloured fillings last for seven to ten years. Talk to Dr. Assad about the pros and cons in your case. Learn more about dental fillings and tooth conditions.

Teeth Reshaping & Gum Contouring

Teeth reshaping and gum contouring are two simple procedures that can considerably improve your smile in a short time and at little cost.

You are a good candidate for these procedures if you feel uncomfortable smiling because:

  • Your teeth are uneven
  • You have overlapping teeth
  • Your teeth are too pointed or chipped
  • Your teeth are out of proportion with surrounding teeth
  • Your gums show too much below the lip line when you smile

Tooth Reshaping

This procedure simply shapes the tooth to the desired appearance by trimming off excess tooth material. Something as simple as changing the way a tooth reflects light can help conceal a crooked tooth. Tooth reshaping can improve both appearance and alignment.

Gum Contouring

This procedure consists of removing the overgrowth of gum tissue and sculpting a scalloped gum line to create the appearance of longer or more symmetrical teeth.

Both procedures are non-invasive and new laser technology helps alleviate discomfort. Procedures can be completed in a single session. You can improve your smile and enhance your confidence with little cost. Ask Dr. Assad if you are a good candidate at your next appointment.
