White fillings are a popular alternative to traditional amalgam metal fillings. Our patients prefer tooth-colored material for its aesthetic appeal and superior function while mimicking tooth’s natural shape. During the first portion of the procedure, decay will be removed and tooth will be cleaned leaving space for white filling material such as dental composite. Composite(white) filling material blends in better with your natural teeth. Hardened composite filling material helps to resist forces of opposing teeth while preserving lot of natural tooth structure in comparison with metal(amalgam) fillings. Once completed, tooth becomes free of decay, returned almost to its natural strength and helps to restore function. Most patients prefer to have white filling compared with amalgam due to its esthetic appearance and natural tooth structure.
Our patients come to us from Cary, Clayton, Garner, Raleigh, Apex, holly Springs and nearby locations for family, cosmetic and sedation dentistry.
