What are dental fillings?
Dental fillings are a common type of dental restoration used to treat cavities and other forms of decay on your tooth enamel. Applied directly into the empty spaces left once tooth decay has been removed, dental fillings can restore the structural integrity of a tooth while preventing bacteria from spreading. In the past, many materials were used for dental fillings, such as metal or gold; today, we are able to exclusively offer white dental fillings in Metairie, Louisiana, for your benefit and convenience.
What are the advantages of white fillings?
White fillings are made from composite resin, a durable type of plastic. Compared to other types of dental fillings, white fillings have multiple advantages. White fillings can be matched to the exact color of your natural smile and are considered exceptionally strong. Unlike metal or gold, composite resin can bond to your natural tooth structure and last for many years.
