Cavities and decay on your tooth enamel are among the most common problems our patients experience. Luckily, when cavities are caught early enough, they are fairly easy to treat with dental fillings. In fact, it only takes one visit to our office to place dental fillings. We are pleased to offer white dental fillings in Brockton, Massachusetts. White fillings are an advanced type of dental filling made of plastic and free of mercury. There are many advantages to white fillings. They can be matched to the exact color of your tooth’s surface, allowing you to maintain a beautiful aesthetic. White fillings are also exceptionally strong and bond naturally with your original tooth structure.
To place a white filling, all decay is removed and the tooth is thoroughly sanitized. Then, the composite resin plastic is applied and sculpted in layers. Once the white filling fits your natural smile and bite, we will harden it with a special light and polish it for a natural shine. Dr. Bansal, Dr. Chawla and Dr. Jun, our knowledgeable dentists, offer white fillings at Brockton Dental and Orthodontics to restore the integrity and strength of a damaged tooth and prevent further decay from occurring. If you are experiencing tooth pain, a white filling may be right for you. Contact our dental office today to learn more!
Coating can form when sugars from the food you eat are not removed. When plaque is left on your teeth, acid is created, which eats away at your teeth, creating small holes. Tooth decay is the term for this process. You can see that the deterioration has been noticed early in this example. It penetrates the enamel of the tooth and the dentin layer, but not all the way to the pulp chamber. A filling can be utilized to heal your tooth if there is only a small amount of deterioration. The initial step is to extract the decayed tooth. The hole in your tooth is then filled with material. A number of materials, such as silver amalgam or composite resin, can be used as filling material.
