A common procedure that many patients may require some time during a dental visit is a tooth filling. White fillings are made up of a plastic and glass combination called composite resin which is used to fill or re build the teeth that have been damaged due to cavities or tooth decay or cracks and breakage.
Most patients favor white fillings over other filling options because they are designed to match the natural color of your teeth. New and advanced composite resins’ durability and resistance make them a good choice for Dental fillings.
Typically, white fillings can be administered within one dental visit at our Burlington dental office.
Fillings are used to treat cavities. If the cavities are left untreated, more complications can develop such as infections, pain, discomfort, need for a root canal treatment and even tooth loss.
Cavities can be detected and treated at early stages to avoid more complicated problems by your Dentist at your regular check up visits.
