Maybe your cavities cause discomfort when you eat something with a lot of sugar. You know you need to see the dentist to get them taken care of, but you don’t like the idea of having fillings that can be seen whenever you open your mouth or laugh. Or maybe you even have a cavity on one of your front teeth and have avoided getting a filling because you don’t want to draw attention to your dental work.
White fillings, also known as composite fillings, match your teeth so that it won’t be obvious when you get a cavity treated. At Town Dental Group, we use white fillings to bring your teeth back to good health while still appearing natural.
What Are Composite Fillings?
Dental composite fillings are used to restore teeth that have suffered damage from decay. In addition, they keep further decay from occurring.
You may need a cavity filling even if you take great care of your teeth because decay can form in your mouth simply because of the way your teeth are shaped. Teeth with deep grooves and pits are more susceptible to cavities.
White fillings are created with a resin composite that is the same color and consistency of a natural tooth. These fillings are strong enough to withstand the stresses that will be put on them every day.
The Benefits of White Fillings
Here are some of the reasons white fillings are a great option:
- They are metal-free and safe for your mouth
- They look natural
- They require less of your natural tooth to be removed
- They are good for both small and large cavities
