Fillings are used to restore teeth affected by minor damage or decay. We provide white fillings in Las Cruces, New Mexico to effectively and aesthetically restore the health of your smile. White fillings, which are also known as tooth-colored or composite fillings, are created from composite resin. Composite resin is a durable, tooth-colored material that bonds with the natural tooth structure, strengthening the tooth and helping to prevent further tooth decay and damage in the future. Our talented dentists will match the shade of the composite resin to your natural tooth color to ensure that your filling blends in naturally with your smile. In addition to restoring damaged teeth, white fillings can be used to replace outdated silver/amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings are not only more noticeable in your smile because of their silver color, but they are also potentially harmful to your health because they contain mercury. White fillings contain no mercury or other metals and are considered more comfortable and aesthetic.
The process for placing a dental filling typically requires just one visit to Dental Associates, PA. Dr. Born and Dr. Sudimack will remove the decayed portion of the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it in with composite resin.
