Benefits of White Fillings
Get expert dentistry from Above Dental in North Bend, OR.
White fillings provide the following benefits:
- Aesthetic appeal
Compared to amalgam fillings, white fillings are more attractive because they’re colored to match your natural teeth. Composite fillings are easily mixed to achieve your tooth color, making your restoration virtually invisible.
- Strength and durability
White fillings create a direct bond with the natural tooth material, adhering strongly to the tooth. The composite resin is made of resilient components like glass which can withstand chewing, biting, and other occlusal forces.
- Tooth protection
Covering a tooth with a white filling protects it from further damage or decay. If a tooth is sensitive, the filling can close the holes in the dentin (middle of the tooth) and prevent any substance from coming in contact with the pulp (nerve). If the tooth is decayed, the filling prevents the development of new decay since bacteria cannot break down the composite resin.
- Ease of application
White fillings don’t require extensive removal of tooth material. The process is simple, and multiple filings can be placed in an hour in most cases.
