For decades, tooth decay has been repaired and filled up using silver-colored fillings, or what is known as amalgam. If this is the case, why should you go white fillings to restore your smile? Here at Blome Family Dentistry in Lincoln, NE, Dr. Greg Blome and Dr. Sara Wubbels, regularly uses white fillings for restoring damaged teeth. Find out why below.
 

Composite Fillings

White composite fillings are the result of combining ceramic and resin. If you are after restoring your smile, they can prove to be a great choice. The white composite filling can bond to all sides of the tooth that is being restored. This results in having a tighter seal that will structurally strengthen the tooth and make it healthier. The more structurally sound the tooth is, the longer the tooth restoration procedure lasts.
 

The blend of small glass particles mixed with plastics creates an excellent material for repairing tooth cavities. The white color also makes it easier to blend it with your natural teeth and shape the restored tooth if necessary.
 

Aside from easily matching the color of your natural teeth, white composite fillings also hide the fact that you had undergone tooth restoration. The strength achieved by bonding with the tooth enamel also increases its resistance to the usual wear that our teeth go through.
 

Perhaps, one of the biggest benefits that come with choosing white dental fillings is that they can be prepared in smaller portions. Simply put, it translates to the preservation of the structure of your remaining natural tooth. After the white dental filling has successfully bonded to the tooth, it will continue to support the structure and keep it strong so that you can confidently flash your winning smile every time.
