Composite fillings, also called tooth-colored or white fillings, are used to repair teeth with minor decay or fractures. If your tooth has a cavity, it is likely that our dentist will recommend a white dental filling in Shawnee Mission, Kansas. Tooth-colored fillings are a wonderful choice to restore your smile and teeth to a natural look and feel. White fillings are made of a material called composite resin, which we can match to your natural tooth color. This allows us to provide a restoration that blends in seamlessly with the appearance of your smile. The composite resin also bonds with the existing tooth structure, strengthening the tooth and helping the restoration stay strong for years to come. If a filling does become chipped or damaged, we are always here to repair your restoration and take care of your smile.
At Dr. Carole Gleich DDS’s dental office, we only use composite fillings, regardless of insurance fees; the great health benefits and beautiful results of using white fillings are part of our high standard of care. In addition to restoring decayed or cracked teeth, we can use composite fillings to replace old, unhealthy silver or mercury fillings. We welcome you to call or visit our dental office today to learn more about the advantages of composite fillings.
