Treating Decay with White Composite Fillings
In the past, if a patient had a cavity, it would be treated with dark, unattractive amalgam fillings, which are made from a combination of metals, including silver and mercury. Today, though, more discreet care can be provided with alternative option—white composite fillings.
White composite fillings are discreet, durable, and supportive in ways that amalgam fillings aren’t. Made from a combination of plastic and glass, they support the tooth’s nature structure, protecting it from bacteria reinvasion, and they can be shaded to match the color of your enamel.
Composite fillings can easily be placed during a single visit to our Hermosa Beach office, leading to better oral health and functionality afterwards.
