For beautiful white fillings that are made to look like your real teeth, a composite resin is used to fill affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied, an LED light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.
Using white composite filling material is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. White fillings can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth.
White fillings are an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. The technically advanced material is strong, long lasting and is less likely to leak than amalgam fillings. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems and is the filling of choice at our office.
