White fillings are widely used to repair the function of your teeth that are damaged due to decay or trauma. Composite resins (a mixture of plastic and small glass particles) are not only helpful in repairing cavities but can also alter the shape or color of a tooth. Our team of professionals will first remove the decayed portion of your tooth and then prepare the filling after matching them with the color of your natural teeth. Once the filling is prepared, a special curing light is used to harden each layer of filling material. Finally, the filling is shaped and polished so that it becomes smooth and resistant to staining.
White fillings are more popular compared to silver fillings as they blend naturally with your teeth and are not easily distinguishable.
The major benefit of a composite filling is an improved smile. A filling can be prepared to look almost identical to the shade of your natural teeth making them blend easily. Composite fillings attach themselves to the tooth lending support to the existing tooth structure and preventing breakage and insulating from excessive fluctuations in temperature.
To ensure optimal life for your fillings, it is recommended to maintain proper oral hygiene. Brushing twice daily with fluoride-based toothpaste is recommended. Flossing once a day with minimizing the intake of sodas and sugary snacks can enhance the life of your fillings.
