White Fillings Q & A

What are white fillings?

Fillings effectively fill a hole in your tooth, typically following the removal of tooth decay.

Dental fillings can restore your tooth, support your tooth structure, prevent tooth decay, and fill a space.

Wanuck, Hier & Associates provides white composite dental fillings and non-mercury containing fillings to protect your dental and general health.

Dr. Wanuck helps you match the shade of the filling to your natural tooth color.

White fillings might also be called composite fillings. These tooth-colored white fillings discreetly blend in with your natural teeth and are usually derived from ceramic and plastic compounds.

Why would I need a white filling?

Dr. Wanuck might suggest white fillings if you have tooth decay or cavities.

Fillings effectively repair teeth worn down over time from various factors, such as nail-biting or teeth grinding. Fillings work especially well for fixing broken, cracked, or weak teeth.

Dental fillings are an excellent solution for treating small cavities. For larger restorations like a large cavity area, a crown or other prosthesis might be the right solution.

What is involved with a white filling?

White fillings can typically be placed during one appointment.

When you get a white filling at Wanuck, Hier & Associates, Dr. Wanuck first administers anesthetic. He uses special dental tools to remove any decayed tooth material and carefully applies a mild acid to help the tooth-colored white material properly bond to your tooth.

Dr. Wanuck usually applies the filling material onto your tooth in small layers using a special dental light. The dental light hardens each layer before Dr. Wanuck applies the next layer.

Dr. Wanuck makes minor adjustments throughout the procedure to make sure your filling successfully matches your bite.

What are the benefits of white fillings?

Tooth-colored white fillings offer many benefits. White fillings can successfully blend in with your natural teeth for optimal discretion. Fillings are an effective and lasting preventive care method and cosmetic solution to treat a range of minor dental issues.

In most cases, Dr. Wanuck can quickly bond your white filling to your tooth in a convenient in-office procedure. Wanuck, Hier & Associates uses high-quality materials and takes time to make sure your filling is the perfect match to compliment your smile.
