White composite resin fillings are used by our La Grange, KY dentist to fill cavities. While not the only option, this solution is often requested for its cosmetically appealing aesthetic quality. White composite fillings have a natural look and blend in with your natural smile.

What are composite fillings?

Composite resin fillings are tooth-colored solutions for filling cavities. While silver, or amalgam, fillings offer the same solution, there is a noticeable difference. If you’d like your peers and family to notice you for your smile, rather than for your fillings, choose white composite fillings.

Our La Grange, KY dentist at Crestwood Dental group has decades of experience in bringing the patients of Crestwood the best dental care.

How should I care for my composite fillings?

A filling only fills the area of tooth decay which was removed from your tooth.  In order to keep the filling in good working order and to keep future cavities from occurring, you must brush and floss.  A good oral hygiene routine is essential for keeping your teeth and mouth free from trouble. We also encourage you to follow the American Dental Association’s’ advice regarding dental visits.  A dental exam every six months allows our professionals to check your oral cavity and teeth for any health problems.

Should I get composite fillings?

White composite fillings are a great alternative to gold or amalgam fillings. They are made to match your existing enamel and extremely durable. The aesthetic properties of composite resin fillings are the most common reason they are popular among our patients. It takes a single visit to get composite fillings and prevents the cavity from growing larger.
