White-Colored Fillings

Cavities, if left unchecked, can wreak havoc on your smile and lead to decay and structural damage. To stop bacteria from causing more problems, our dentists at Peerzada Smiles can use white-colored fillings to repair the surface of your teeth and restore their natural beauty.

What are White-Colored Fillings?

White-colored fillings, or composite fillings, are dental restorations designed to repair damaged or decayed teeth while blending with your natural tooth color.

The process of getting white-colored fillings involves these key steps:

  • Our dentist will examine your teeth and determine whether you need a filling. If they find a cavity, they will discuss the treatment plan with you.
  • If necessary, they will administer local anesthesia to numb the area.
  • The dentist will then remove the decayed or damaged portion of your tooth, leaving behind a clean and healthy area.
  • A tooth-colored composite resin material is applied in layers and shaped to match the contours of your tooth.
  • The professional will use a special light to harden and bond the composite material to your tooth.
  • After curing, the dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable bite.

Are White-Colored Fillings as Durable as Amalgam Fillings?

White-colored fillings are durable and can withstand normal biting and chewing forces. However, their longevity depends on the size and location of the cavity, oral hygiene practices, and personal habits.

While silver amalgam fillings have been known to last longer in some cases, white-colored fillings offer the advantage of a more natural appearance and are a popular choice for visible teeth.

Do White-Colored Fillings Require Special Care or Maintenance?

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
  • Floss daily to remove plaque and food particles.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.
  • Avoid chewing hard objects or biting on ice.
  • Minimize consumption of staining substances like coffee, tea, and tobacco.

Do White-Colored Fillings Stain or Discolor Over Time?

White-colored fillings can develop slight stains or discoloration over time, particularly if you consume staining substances.

However, regular dental cleanings and good oral hygiene can help minimize this risk, keeping your fillings looking fresh and natural.
