White Fillings

White Fillings

An increasingly popular alternative to silver amalgam fillings are composite white fillings. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings are virtually invisible and our team at Midtown Dental Associates can shade them according to the color of your teeth to create an excellent match, giving you a beautiful, white smile!

Benefits of Composite White Fillings

  • Created to match your tooth to ensure a natural look and feel
  • The material is made from acrylic and glass particles, containing no mercury or other metals
  • Provides support to remaining tooth structure, and insulates against temperature changes

The Filling Process

  • First, the targeted tooth is prepped to remove all decay
  • Next, a bonding agent is applied to the prepared tooth
  • The composite material is placed and molded to your tooth structure
  • The material is hardened by focusing a curing light on it for about a minute

The filling is now complete and you have a bright, natural-looking new tooth!

Your filling brightness can be maintained by simply practicing good oral hygiene and avoiding staining food and drinks. For more information on composite white fillings or to schedule an appointment, call your Austin dentist at 512-472-2246 and let us rejuvenate your smile!
