Wollaston dental care is proud to offer white fillings as our primary restorative material.
What are White Fillings?
A dental filling refers to a restorative material that is used to repair teeth. White fillings are typically made out of a composite resin. These fillings blend in very well to match your recently whitened teeth. We strive to give you a beautiful smile. The procedure is simple and virtually pain free.
How is it Done?
With the use of blue lights, the resin of the white filling is cured to your teeth for a tight bond. This bond helps the filling support the structure of your tooth and helps to prevent cracks and fractures. Our cosmetic dentists would then shape and polish the composite to help it fit comfortably and limit deterioration and staining. Ultimately, the filling would be very difficult to notice among your other teeth!
What are the Advantages of White Fillings?
Traditionally, dentists use silver filling as their restorative material. A lot of natural tooth structure is destroyed in the process to build retention for the silver. White fillings allows for much limited loss of tooth structure. With white fillings, no one will be able to tell the difference between your fillings and your natural teeth.
