White, or tooth-coloured, composite fillings repair teeth damaged by cracks, fractures, decay, chipped and worn teeth, or extra space between two teeth.
Steps to White Fillings
Composite filling usually takes one appointment. Decay is removed and filled in and carefully shaped and polished to ensure that the tooth looks and functions properly.
Caring for Composite Fillings
Immediately after the procedure, you may feel sensitivity to hot or cold but this will quickly subside. Composite fillings are incredibly durable, however, they may need to be replaced over time. Proper oral hygiene, a healthy diet and regular visits to your dentist will help ensure that your filling stands the test of time.
