White Fillings

Benefits of Composite White Fillings

  • Created to match your tooth to ensure a natural look and feel
  • Because composite fillings can be created in smaller preparations, less of your tooth structure is lost and less drilling is needed
  • The material is made from acrylic and glass particles, containing no mercury or other metals
  • Provides support to remaining tooth structure and insulates against temperature changes

The Filling Process

  • First, the targeted tooth is prepared to remove decay
  • Next, a bonding agent is applied to the prepared tooth
  • The composite material is placed and molded to your tooth structure
  • The material is hardened by focusing intense light rays on it for about a minute
