White Fillings Restore Decay with long lasting results

A dental filling is a restoration used to restore a decayed or damaged tooth. In the past, dental fillings were created from amalgam, a mixture of metals that is silver in color. While amalgam fillings are durable, they disrupt the natural aesthetic of your smile and typically require more extensive tooth removal. Dr.McCall is pleased to offer a more natural-looking, conservative, modern filling option known as white fillings. White fillings are created from a long-lasting, tooth-colored material called composite resin; because of this, they are also referred to as tooth-colored or composite fillings.  Dr.McCall matches the shade of the resin to your natural tooth color so that your dental filling will blend in naturally with your tooth. The composite resin also forms a strong bond with the natural tooth structure, strengthening the tooth and providing a lasting restoration.

To place a white dental filling, we will first remove all decay from the tooth. After carefully cleaning the tooth, we place the composite resin and shape it to fit your tooth and bite. Finally, we harden the filling and polish it. We welcome you to contact our office today to learn more about white fillings and their advantages. We are committed to returning your smile to optimal health.
