Obtain A More Attractive Smile With White Fillings
White fillings are a great way to repair cavities, chips, and cracks in your teeth. At Smiles 4 U in Overland Park, we are happy to offer our patients white fillings to eliminate tooth decay with a natural-looking material.
What are dental fillings, and what makes white fillings different?
Fillings are made of a durable material that bonds directly to the tooth. Traditionally, silver amalgam was used in dentistry to fill a cavity, but white fillings have increased in popularity in recent years.
White fillings, or composite restorations, are made with resin and glass particles. This allows them to blend in with the natural color of your teeth for an aesthetically pleasing result.
How are white fillings placed at Smiles 4 U?
At Smiles 4 U, white fillings are placed simply with minimal discomfort. During the procedure, we will remove all decay from the tooth and clean the area before filling it with the composite resin material. After curing it with a special light, your tooth is polished for a natural-looking finish.
What benefits do white fillings provide?
White fillings provide the same strength and durability as their metal counterparts but with a more natural look. They also contain no metals or mercury, making them a safe and environmentally-friendly option for filling teeth. They don’t cause sensitivity like amalgam fillings, which tend to react to extreme changes in temperature.
How long do white fillings typically last?
White fillings can last for up to ten years if properly cared for. With good oral hygiene and routine checkups, you can extend the lifespan of your white fillings.
Who should consider getting white fillings?
Anyone with small cavities or chips in their teeth should consider getting a white filling at Smiles 4 U. White fillings are a great option for those who want an aesthetically pleasing and durable solution to their dental problems.
