Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings

Composite fillings in Arcadia
Silver fillings are a thing of the past, thanks to high quality white (composite) restorations that are safer and gentler on teeth.

Composite fillings are made of glass ionomer and ceramic materials that come in a variety of different shades. So many, in fact, that no one except you and your dentist need to know that you’ve had dental work done.

Aesthetically, white fillings are second to none. Our dentist in Arcadia uses quality composite materials that closely match the natural color of your teeth. The end results allow them to subtly blend in with your smile, so that they aren’t visible when you’re talking, laughing, or posing in photographs.

Less Invasive to Tooth Structure

If you’re treating a small cavity for the first time, choosing a white filling is the least invasive option that our dentist in Arcadia can offer.

Why? Because composite fillings…

  • Are able to bond directly to your tooth
  • Require less alteration to healthy tooth structure
  • Provide a tighter seal, with less risk of leakage around their margin
  • Can be placed on almost any area within the mouth
  • Mimic the structural components of natural tooth enamel

No Mercury

Although amalgam fillings have been used for decades, many people are wary of the idea that they contain mercury. White fillings do not. For individuals that are concerned of the possible exposure risks to mercury toxins, composite restorations provide a safe alternative to consider.

Silver Filling Removal

Part of your smile makeover might involve taking out the old metal fillings and replacing them with white ones. Our dentist in Arcadia can pair composite restorations with other options like porcelain crowns, veneers, and whitening for dramatic results that you’ll feel confident showing off.
