Tooth-Colored Fillings

White Fillings for a Natural Smile

If you have a cavity, you no longer have to worry about big metal fillings marring your natural smile. Dr. Joseph places tooth-colored, composite resin instead of silver/amalgam fillings. These durable fillings are made from material that we tint to blend with existing tooth structure, so they virtually disappear!

To place a filling, Dr. Joseph will prepare your tooth by removing the decay. He'll use anesthetic to ensure your comfort during this process. Then a small bit of tinted composite resin will be placed into the cavity and hardened with a curing light. Dr. Joseph will shape and polish the filling to make sure it fits well with your bite and looks spectacular. We can replace old metal fillings, as well, so that you can reclaim an all-white smile.
