Tooth colored fillings are designed to be indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth, so your cavities will never steal the spotlight from your smile again. White fillings, or composite resins, blend in seamlessly with your smile with the added benefit of being bonded to the tooth and helping to prevent it from further damage.
In contrast with traditional silver fillings, white resins are made of a glass and plastic mixture that are aesthetically pleasing and won’t corrode in the same way that metal fillings do. They are great for:
- Front teeth fillings
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Decayed and worn teeth
The fillings are usually done in one appointment after your dentist numbs and cleans the tooth. The composite filling will then be shaped, placed and expertly polished to match the rest of your teeth.
