White dental fillings are an excellent way to improve aesthetics while also ensuring the integrity of your smile. Unlike traditional metal fillings, our composite restorations blend right in with your smile and are color-matched to blend right in with the teeth that they are bonded to.
Minimally Invasive Fillings that Strengthen Teeth
Composite fillings require less tooth preparation than traditional fillings. Only the damaged area needs to be removed, because the composite bonds directly to porous tooth structure. This prevents the need for a wedged shape being needed inside of the tooth to retain the filling.
Over the course of time, the composite filling also releases fluoride particles into the enamel around it, reducing the risk of recurrent tooth decay.
Once your filling is completed, you won’t even be able to tell where it is. Our dentists choose from dozens of tooth colored materials to create fillings that resemble the shade closest to your healthy enamel.
Symptoms of a Cavity
Do you need a filling? Cavities may be completely unnoticeable except through x-rays or a clinical exam. However, some cavities can cause symptoms like sensitivity to hot and cold, sweet foods, chewing or biting pressure, cool air, etc.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, call Monrovia Family Dentistry right away to schedule an exam. The earlier you seek out care, the simpler it is to repair your smile.
