What are white fillings?

White fillings are a type of dental filling created using composite resin. Composite resin is a long-lasting, tooth-colored material that can be used to effectively restore a tooth that has become damaged or decayed. Our dentist will match the color of the composite resin to your natural tooth color to ensure that your restoration is natural looking and aesthetic.

Do I need a white filling?

You may need a white filling if your tooth has a cavity. To place the white dental filling, Dr. Anthony Shaia will gently remove the damaged or decayed portion of the tooth. We will then clean the tooth and fill it in with composite resin. Finally, we will carefully shape and polish the white filling to ensure that it fits your bite comfortably. The process for placing a white dental filling in Parma Heights, Ohio, typically requires only one comfortable, pleasant visit to our office. Our caring dental team will ensure that your visit is as enjoyable and painless as possible.
