White Fillings

Previously, our dental clinic 75209 used to have dental amalgam or silver fillings to fill in the cavities formed by the tooth decay. The silver fillings contained liquid mercury in it along with silver, tin and copper metals in powdered form. Due to the presence of mercury, chances of mercury poisoning were sky-high. The silver filling had been in use for quite a long time until scientists came up with a new idea to replace the silver fillings. Composite filling or while filling was introduced causing the drawbacks of dental amalgam to be removed.

White Fillings are mercury free and are made of a plastic, glass mixture. White fillings match the color of teeth and are used to treat decaying teeth. They are also used cosmetic smile enhancement. Along with filling the cavities, white fillings also strengthen the teeth structure. The composite filling can be changed easily as well when damaged or required, while small cavities can be easily filled. After the procedure of white filling, if decay occurs, it is very easy to spot and fix. These fillings are heat and cold resistant.

White fillings are extremely durable and last for 8-10 years if taken proper care of. Regular checkups are necessary for white fillings to remain safe from decay, bacteria or any other harmful source. Regular cleansing, brushing and flossing are also advised. With white fillings, you can easily enhance your natural smile!

Some advantages of white fillings are:

  • • White Fillings done at West Lovers Dental in Dallas Texas strengthen the teeth instead of weakening it like the silver filling does.
  • •Our dentist 75209 can make smaller holes in the teeth for the filling to flow into keeping more of the tooth intact.
  • •If the white filling is damaged, it can easily be changed.
  • •Decay after the white filling is put in is much easier to spot.
  • •These white fillings are heat and cold resistant.
  • •Smaller cavities can be easily fixed.
  • •No need to wait for the cavity to increase in size before having the filling done.
  • •White Fillings lasts for 8 to 10 years.
  • •These fillings insulate the tooth where extreme changes in temperatures occur.
  • •White fillings are a more natural and attractive choice to a beautiful smile.
  • •The composite in these fillings binds itself to the tooth to help prevent breakage.
