White Fillings

Book Today!

White dental fillings, also known as composite fillings, are tooth-colored restorations used to treat cavities or repair damage to teeth. They are made of a mixture of plastic and glass that is designed to match the natural color of your teeth, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing restoration compared to traditional silver (amalgam) fillings.

The process of getting a white dental filling typically involves the following steps:

  • Evaluation: Your dentist will evaluate your tooth and determine if a filling is needed. If a filling is needed, they will remove any decay or damage and prepare the tooth for the filling.
  • Filling Placement: Your dentist will then place the white filling material onto the prepared tooth and shape it to match the natural contours of your tooth. A special light is used to harden the filling material, which bonds it securely to the tooth.

White dental fillings offer several benefits compared to traditional silver fillings, including:

  1. Aesthetic Appeal: Composite fillings are designed to match the natural color of your teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable from your surrounding teeth.
  2. Conservative Treatment: Composite fillings require less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to silver fillings, which can help preserve the natural tooth structure.
  3. Durability: Composite fillings are highly durable and can last for many years with proper care.
  4. Improved Bonding: The composite material used in white fillings bonds better with the tooth structure compared to silver fillings, resulting in a more stable and long-lasting restoration.

Overall, white dental fillings are an effective and aesthetically pleasing option for treating cavities or repairing damage to teeth. However, it’s essential to discuss all available options with your dentist to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs.
