What are white fillings?

White fillings are a type of dental restoration used to aesthetically improve your oral health. Also known as tooth-colored fillings or composite fillings, white fillings are created using a tooth-colored material called composite resin. Your experienced dentist, Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt, will ensure that the shade of the composite resin matches your natural tooth color. No one will be able to tell that you have a filling! Composite resin bonds with the natural tooth structure, strengthening the tooth and protecting it from further decay and damage in the future.

Do I need a white dental filling?

Your smile may benefit from a white filling if your tooth is decayed or damaged. To place the filling, Dr. Brandon Schvaneveldt will gently remove the damaged portion of the tooth. He will then fill the tooth with composite resin and carefully shape the resin to fit your bite. The composite resin is then hardened with a special light, ensuring that your white filling is durable and long lasting.
