Our white fillings include ceramic and new resin compounds that mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel.
These new materials allow us to save as much healthy tooth structure as possible and achieve the best aesthetic results for your smile.
After drilling out a cavity, our dentist will use a white filling to restore your tooth.
Benefits of white fillings include:
- Saves more natural tooth enamel
- Matches the color and shade of your teeth
- Strong and long-lasting
- Made from safe nontoxic materials
- Little to no sensitivity after the procedure
- Easily repairable
Unlike silver fillings, composite fillings don’t expand and contract with fluctuating temperatures. This means you’ll be able to enjoy coffee or ice cream without your cavity filling letting in bacteria.
Traditional dental fillings are made from amalgam and older resin composites. Amalgams lack natural aesthetics, while older resin composites lack strength and color stability. Since we’d have to remove more tooth structure for traditional dental fillings, we don’t offer these options to our patients. Our dentist uses white fillings that are mercury-free to meet a higher standard of dental care.
Many of our patients appreciate having white fillings for teeth that show when they smile and talk. Composite fillings match the color and shade of your teeth so you can smile with confidence.
