At Able Dental Group we use composite resin fillings, also called white fillings, they give the tooth a more natural look as compared to conventional silver amalgam fillings. White fillings are used to repair teeth affected by decay or fractures to restore your tooth’s function and look. Your Able dentist will remove the affected portion of the tooth and rebuild the area with a white filling. White fillings are not a permanent solution and may need to be replaced; however, they are durable and will last for many years to come. It is normal to experience sensitivity to hot and cold immediately following placement of a white filling, but such discomfort fades shortly as your tooth adapts to the new filling. Your Able dentist will work with you to ensure your filling looks natural in order to restore your smile and confidence.
