Dental Fillings

White fillings are just one of the many popular treatments included is cosmetic dentistry. Resin Dental Fillings (‘white’ fillings) are often chosen by patients looking to have a mini smile makeover. Having a cavity no longer has to mar the appearance of your smile since white fillings blend in naturally to give a seamless finish.

White, or composite fillings, are so popular with our patients that many are choosing to have their old silver fillings replaced with this cosmetic alternative.

Dr. John Robinson can help when it comes to the choices you’ll consider for your dental filling options. Please contact us to set up a consultation today by calling: 770.939.7167.

Need to Consider

Dental Fillings?

Fillings help restore to their normal function teeth damaged by decay and can prevent further decay from happening. Dr. Robinson will consider a number of factors when choosing which type of filling material is best for you. These factors include the extent of the repair, where in your mouth the filling is needed and the cost.

A Few Benefits

of Resin Dental Fillings

  • Appearance – Unlike silver or amalgam fillings, white fillings have a natural appearance since the color is carefully blended to match your other teeth. It’s the perfect solution for front teeth which would look unattractive with a silver or metallic filling.
  • Durable – White fillings are more durable than they once were, and when used in small to medium sized fillings, are resistant to fractures.
  • Support – Composite fillings bond with the teeth to strengthen the natural structure that has been weakened by decay. Also, when Dr. Robinson prepares a tooth for a white filling, less of the natural tooth structure needs to be removed than for silver or amalgam filling.
  • Thermal stresses – A consideration with amalgam fillings is that they tend to expand and contract when exposed to different temperatures in the mouth, and this can cause them to crack. White fillings have insulating qualities which help prevent this from happening.
  • Versatile – White fillings are more versatile than their amalgam counterparts because they can be used to repair teeth which are worn, broken, or chipped.
