White Fillings

Composite fillings, also known as natural tooth colored fillings, are an alternative to conventional amalgam fillings. When a tooth is prepared for a composite filling, the only thing that must be cleared away is the decay and not the healthy tooth structure. The composite filling is bonded to the exterior of the tooth, restoring its inherent toughness. Many patients have noticed that the sensitivity of their teeth is reduced after composite fillings are placed as opposed to amalgam fillings.
