At Eagle Rock Dental Care we perform what is known as “White Fillings”. This is a composite filling made up of a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture. White Fillings are used to restore the damage done by tooth decay or even to reshape disfigured teeth or whiten teeth.
The composite (white filling) is placed in layers inside the area that has decayed over time. Each layer is added and then hardened using a light specialized for hardening this composite. Your dentist will then shape the composite filling to look and feel natural. This will allow for you to continue brushing and flossing like normal without noticing the filling. Finally, the filling is polished to prevent staining or early wear.
White Fillings are a great way to protect your teeth while keeping their natural shape and color for your comfort.
