Cosmetic Care - White Fillings

Non-Metallic Dental Fillings

Tooth-colored dental filling material, or dental composite, is a more popular material today than silver (amalgam) for repairing small to medium-sized areas of tooth decay. Composite dental resin materials are also mercury-free.

 

Tooth Bonding with Dental Composites

After preparing the tooth, Dr. Minniti will choose a dental composite shade to match your smile, and apply and shape the filling using an adhesive, or bonding procedure. Once in place the composite material is hardened using a special curing light, and polished for a natural-looking result.

While dental composite filling materials are not as durable or stain-resistant as dental porcelain or gold, they are an economical solution for restoring dental cavities in the early stages of decay. Available in a wide range of natural-looking shades, they are also used in cosmetic dental bonding procedures in front teeth to conceal minor chips and defects.
