White fillings have many advantages for our patients. For this reason, we only offer natural looking, tooth-colored fillings to treat destruction caused by dental cavities. Some of the advantages of white fillings include:
- Matched to the color of your natural teeth
- Do not contain any mercury
- Do not expand and contract
- Less tooth structure needs to be removed
The unsightly metal amalgam fillings of decades past not only stand out in your smile, they also expand and contract in response to temperature changes in your mouth. Metal fillings can crack your tooth, which may require a dental crown. White fillings are made of a durable composite resin that does not change because of normal fluctuations in temperature in your mouth. White fillings also do not require much of the natural tooth to be removed, while metal fillings often require invasive removal of tooth structure.
With white fillings, you can laugh and smile without worrying about whether people will notice your fillings. The composite resin is closely matched to your natural enamel and blends in. At Cedar Park Premier Dentistry, we are committed to providing the services and treatments that help you achieve a strong, healthy, and beautiful smile.
