White Fillings/Composite Restorations
Composite fillings are mercury-free and restore the natural appearance of tooth. And, with today’s technology, composite fillings can easily withstand the stress required in the posterior teeth.
Since composite fillings bond to the tooth, they restore most of the original strength of the tooth.
In addition, the preparation for placement of a white filling require less removal of tooth structure.
Are there any disadvantages with white fillings?
Some of the disadvantages are:
- Some post operative sensitivity may occur.
- The shade of the composite can change due to staining by tea, coffee, or other staining foods.
- The proper placement of a white filling requires the site to be kept completely isolated from saliva. However, in the very back of mouth, on some patients, it is difficult to do it during the entire procedure. In those cases, a silver filling may be recommended since silver amalgam filling doesn’t require this strict isolation of the tooth.
FROM OUR PATIENTS
I would absolutely recommend these guys!
I am one of those people that will only visit the dentist if I have a severe tooth ache or a major cosmetic issue, but I just might reconsider and visit them more often.
So far I had 2 dental visits and am very pleased. Very easy going atmosphere, very nice people, doctors paid attention to my concerns, you don't feel like you're just a number waiting to be called.
I would absolutely recommend these guys!"
“I have changed my dental provider to this care.”
I have changed my dental provider to this care. For my first visit doctor went over all details and explained me. Also doctor preference is also not put cap directly on teeth. Resolve it by filling.
Next visit when my filling came out. I was in lot of pain, they were able to give me next day appointment in morning. In morning doctor put filling in my teeth and issue was resolved."
“You will not regret coming here.”
