Thornton’s Best Dentist For White Fillings
If you have some minor tooth decay, you may be a good candidate for white fillings. White fillings, also called “composite fillings” or “tooth-colored fillings”, are used to restore minimally decayed teeth. They can also be used to change the shape, color and size of teeth in a process called “bonding.”
Replace Silver Fillings with Composite White Fillings
White fillings replace the silver fillings of yesteryear and allow us to create a better aesthetic result while eliminating tooth decay, restoring your tooth to health. During our routine teeth cleanings and cosmetic dentistry, we encounter a lot of people with silver fillings who wonder if they’re safe.
Four Reasons to Choose White Fillings Over Silver Fillings
- More conservative. You take away less of the tooth to do this whereas silver requires drilling more deeply.
- More aesthetic. Looks better! You’ll hardly notice them.
- Increases the strength of your teeth. White fillings actually adhere to the tooth and strengthen it.
- No mercury! Stay away from the caustic effects of mercury.
