White Fillings, For Healthy Teeth and a Pleasing Smile
Cavities are generally treated with dental fillings. Fillings stop decay from spreading and restore your tooth to everyday use. Dental fillings are available in different types of materials. At Peachtree Corners Dental Associates, Peachtree Corners, Georgia, we treat cavities with composite resin white fillings to retain your smile’s aesthetic appeal. White fillings blend in with the color of your teeth, making your cavity treatment completely discreet.
About White Fillings
A natural-looking, pleasing appearance is one of the main reasons our patients choose white fillings. Composite resin fillings are composed of a mixture of pliable resin material and powdered glass. The resin material is available in different shades of white, making it easy for Dr. Kristina Dawson to match your filling to the color of your natural teeth. A white front tooth filling is less likely to stand out when you smile.
Composite fillings are applied in layers to your tooth to cover the hole left by the cavity. After each layer, we’ll cure the filling in place using a special light. Once all the layers are in place, we’ll mold your filling to the shape of your tooth to make it look as natural as possible.
Reasons to Choose Composite Tooth-Colored Fillings
Composite fillings help restore the health and functionality of decayed teeth while still retaining their aesthetic appeal. After your cavity treatment, you won’t feel uncomfortable about smiling. Composite fillings:
- Bond firmly to the surface of your teeth, reinforcing their structure while treating decay. This strong bond makes them less likely to come loose or fall off from use.
- Repair decayed teeth and protect them from infection in the future
- Don’t require much drilling for their application, enabling your tooth to retain more of its strength and structure.
- Can also be used to repair minor tooth damage caused by age, wear and tear, trauma, or teeth grinding, making your teeth less prone to decay or future breakage.
