What are White Fillings?

White fillings, also known as composite fillings, are used to repair and restore teeth that have been damaged or decayed. They are made of a tooth-colored resin material that blends in with the natural color of your teeth, making them a popular choice for those who want a more natural-looking smile.

Why are White Fillings needed?

White fillings are used to treat cavities and decay, but they can also repair cracked, broken, or worn-down teeth. They can also replace old metal fillings that are causing discomfort or are no longer effective. White fillings are a popular choice for those who want a more aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking smile.

Who would be a candidate for White Fillings?

Anyone who has a cavity or decayed tooth, or who wants to replace an old metal filling, may be a candidate for white fillings. Additionally, those who have cracked, broken, or worn-down teeth may also benefit from white fillings. Your dentist can determine if white fillings are the right choice for you based on your individual needs and oral health.

What happens during the White Fillings procedure?

During the white fillings procedure, your dentist will first numb the affected tooth area with a local anesthetic. They will then remove any decay or damaged tooth material, and clean the area to prepare it for the filling. Then, the white filling material will be applied in layers and hardened with a special light. Your dentist will then shape and polish it to ensure a natural-looking finish. The entire process typically takes less than an hour, and you can resume normal activities immediately after.
