Composite Dental Fillings
If you are in need of a dental filling, Dr. Wilhite and his team are happy to assist. We use natural looking, tooth colored fillings. These fillings are also known as composite fillings because they are made of composite resin. This is the same material used in some dental crowns. Composite dental fillings are safe, effective, affordable, and look completely natural.
Why Should I Get Composite Dental Fillings?
Tooth colored fillings have many advantages over traditional metal fillings.
- They are very natural in appearance. Composite dental fillings are matched to your tooth color to allow for a seamless match. They are incredibly unnoticeable. For this reason, they are also ideal fillings for front teeth or teeth that show when you smile. In comparison, metal fillings are very detracting from a beautiful smile.
- Composite fillings are not affected by temperature changes. This is advantageous because they will not expand and contract, like metal fillings. After much expansion and contraction, metal fillings tend to fall out and need to be replaced.
- They require less tooth structure to be removed before placing them in your mouth. Dr. Wilhite knows how important it is to preserve your natural teeth, so he always uses composite fillings.
- Composite fillings are made of completely safe materials that bond to your teeth and do not fall out. This means your beautiful smile can last for years to come, with proper care.
