A Dentist Checking White Composite Fillings

Cavities “disappear” with white composite fillings from dentist in Kennesaw & Tucker, GA

An estimated 91 percent of Americans have at least one cavity by age 64. For many years, amalgam fillings were the “go-to” solution for repair of tooth decay, though their dark silver color is noticeable in the smile. Today, patients in the Kennesaw & Tucker, GA area have a beautiful option – white composite fillings.

What are white fillings?

A filling is a dental restoration that replaces a portion of tooth structure eaten-away by decay, or which must be removed due to damage by trauma (breakage).

White dental fillings are made of composite resin. This combination of biocompatible materials creates a strong restoration that resists fracture, even when subjected to the stress of biting and chewing. The color blends so seamlessly with natural dentition, only a dentist can detect it.

Composite fillings are conservative dentistry. Because amalgam is pressed into place, a fair amount of healthy tooth structure must be removed to allow a “silver” filling to be secure. A composite filling is bonded to the prepared tooth, a technique which preserve more of the natural tooth.

This type of filling is also tooth-friendly in the long term. It has a co-efficient of expansion more like tooth structure than metal. That means it responds to hot or cold temperature at a similar rate, reducing risk of tooth fractures. Plus, a white filling is gentle to the opposing tooth, not subjecting it to unusual wear.

Caring for white composite fillings

Kennesaw & Tucker, GA dentist, Dr. Kay Kalantari, emphasizes the easy-care attributes of tooth-colored fillings. Once a cavity has been repaired with a white composite filling, you may forget it is there. Simply care for as you do the rest of your teeth:

  • Be wary of very hard or sticky foods which could damage a tooth or dislodge a filling.
  • Avoid biting into hard objects such as fingernails, pens, or ice.
  • Limit dark beverages and tobacco.
  • Brush teeth, at minimum, in the morning and at night – after all meals is even better.
  • Floss before bedtime.
  • Visit Dentistry at Kennesaw Point twice a year for professional cleaning and examination.
