Leander White Fillings Dentist
White fillings – also known as composite resin fillings – are used to restore both the function and appearance of damaged or decayed teeth. In comparison to silver fillings, white fillings can also be made to match the natural color of your tooth enamel. At Dr. Sid K. Steadman D.D.S., we offer the Leander community with dental services that are catered to fit each individual’s specific needs, all in a comfortable and family-friendly environment.
How Are White Fillings Placed?
Once it has been determined that a patient requires the placement of white fillings, whether for tooth decay restoration or cosmetic reasons, the dentist will prepare the fillings and may then perform the following:
- Place the filling in layers
- Use a special light to harden each layer
- Shape the filling for proper fit
- Polish the filling to prevent wear
Not only are white fillings virtually unnoticeable and aesthetically pleasing, they also have no staining potential. Following the procedure, the fillings permanently bond to the tooth. At Dr. Sid K. Steadman D.D.S., we want every patient to understand the importance of regular brushing and flossing – even after a white fillings procedure – as new cavities always have the potential to form without it.
