White Composite Fillings also known as composite fillings or tooth-colored fillings, white fillings are used to repair minor to moderate tooth decay and damage. White fillings are created using composite resin, which is a durable material that is available in a wide variety of shades. Your talented dentists will match the color of the composite resin to your natural tooth color to ensure that your restoration looks natural and aesthetic. With white fillings, no one will even notice that you have a filling! In addition, the composite resin bonds with the natural tooth structure, strengthening the tooth and preventing further damage in the future.
Do I need a white filling?
If your tooth is decayed or has a cavity, Dr. Mettler and Dr. Griego may recommend a white filling. To place the filling, our dentists will remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill the tooth with composite resin. They will carefully shape and polish the white filling to make sure it comfortably fits your bite.
