The Benefits of White Fillings
White composite fillings are a great alternative to “silver” amalgam fillings for many reasons.
Some of these being:
1. White fillings match your existing teeth in color, thus looking more natural and brighter.
2. White fillings require less tooth preparation for a more conservative result.
3. White fillings are less likely to affect heat and/or cold sensitivity than amalgam fillings.
4. White fillings allow you to keep more of your natural tooth, which in turn will help overall dental health.
In addition to the above, the white filling composite material is made up of acrylic and glass particles, and it contains no mercury or other metals.
Due to the flexibility of the material, it reduces the development of cracks and fractures commonly associated with metal fillings. This can increase the longevity of the filling, which makes it a better investment.
Dr. Naidu uses the best composite material on the market, containing both strength and cosmetic properties, and he uses the latest bonding protocol to minimize postoperative sensitivity. We want to make sure that you’re as comfortable as possible both during the treatment, and also immediately following it.
We can also replace old amalgam fillings with white fillings should you wish to brighten your overall smile!
