White Fillings

White fillings are fillings designed to match the color and contour of your teeth for a natural look and feel. White fillings can be placed in the front or back teeth and can be completed in just one visit. This process, although simple for the patient, is a precise sequential process of layering and laser bonding in order to integrate the composite resin into the tooth structure for strength and durability. The final detailing involves polishing the resin to fit the tooth anatomy and give it luster. Many patients choose to replace old unsightly metal fillings that contain mercury with white fillings because white fillings are more aesthetically pleasing and help strengthen the remaining tooth structure.

Bonding on the anterior or front teeth is an excellent method for repairing minor imperfections such as chips and stains. It can also be used to fill gaps between the teeth called diastemas. Although no cosmetic dentistry procedure can take the place of good oral and periodontal hygiene, bonding can brighten your smile quickly and easily.

What are some of the most common benefits of this procedure?
In this procedure, a composite resin material is applied to the tooth and then sculpted and shaped to cover damaged areas or to fill in gaps. This material comes in several shades so it can be matched to the natural color of your tooth. Bonding usually requires only one visit, so it is less time-consuming and less expensive than other tooth restoration methods
