We offer white fillings made of composite resin to restore teeth after removing cavities. We understand that many of our patients are concerned about the materials we put in their mouths, which is why we often recommend composite resin fillings. Composite resin is not only safe, but made to match the color of your natural tooth enamel. To learn if you’re a candidate for composite fillings, request an appointment with our Kalamazoo, MI dentist.
Advantages of Tooth Fillings
Unlike metal fillings,don’t expand and contract slightly with fluctuating temperatures. This means that you’ll be able to enjoy a cup of hot coffee or a bowl of ice cream without having your filling move. are stable, which means you won’t have to worry about cavity-causing bacteria entering your tooth to cause further decay.
We may recommend composite resin if you need a front tooth filling. Since front teeth are in the “smile zone,” we highly recommend seeing our dentist in Kalamazoo, MI. We’re able to match the color of your composite filling to the rest of your teeth so you can smile with confidence.
Procedure for Tooth Fillings
It only takes one appointment to restore a tooth with a cavity filling. First, we’ll numb your tooth with local anesthetic so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. Next, we’ll remove the decayed tooth structure and fill in the resulting hole with composite resin. Our dentist takes great care to ensure the composite resin is made to match the natural color of your teeth. That way, you won’t be able to tell where your white filling starts and your natural tooth structure begins.
