Treat Your Cavities with White or Porcelain Fillings

Posted on 6/17/2016 by Allan Hablutzel

However, technological advances in the field of dentistry have developed new and discreet options that can fill your teeth without being as noticeable.

White composite and porcelain fillings are almost undetectable, as they can be created to match the color of your teeth, so if you have a cavity that needs to be filled, consider your options wisely.

All About Porcelain Filings

Porcelain fillings are best suited for the filing of large cavities, especially in the back teeth where chewing forces will be greater. These fillings will help to eliminate evidence of dental work by matching the rest of your teeth, but they are also created to be one of the strongest and most reliable solutions for dental decay. Unlike traditional, metal fillings, porcelain varieties won't be impacted by fluctuations in heat and also tend to be resistant to wear.

All About White Composite Filings

White fillings are a great solution for small or medium-sized cavities in the area of your mouth that requires limited chewing pressure. These fillings are made out of resin, and since they will look just like your natural teeth, they will provide for a seamless and beautiful smile.

Composite fillings aren't necessarily as durable as silver fillings, but they do require minimal amounts of the natural tooth to be removed. This helps to keep as much of your natural tooth as possible in place, making them the ideal solution for cavities in your front teeth.

White composite and porcelain fillings both provide superior aesthetic results when compared to traditional metal fillings. Whether you need a new tooth filled or are hoping to replace your old metal fillings with a more discreet option, contact our office about whether these might be good options for you.
