COMPOSITE FILLINGS IN Whittier, CA
Old amalgam (silver) fillings are dark and easy for anyone to spot. Thankfully, this is the old way of filling teeth. These days, we have composite (tooth-colored) fillings. We match the filling to the shade of your natural teeth, and no one can tell you’ve ever had a filling. Even better – these fillings are durable, strong, and last for years. Since composite fillings are nearly undetectable, they’re the perfect filling option for a brighter, healthier-looking smile.
What Are Composite Fillings?
Composite fillings are a soft resin material that hardens when it’s cured with a UV curing light. When you get a composite filling, it’s not like getting a one-size-fits-all type of filling. The composite material comes in a variety of shades. We can mix and match until we match your natural tooth shade. And because the material is pliant, we can easily shape the material to form an ideal shape that closely matches the anatomy of your natural teeth. By the time your filling appointment is complete, you’ll never be able to tell you’ve had a filling!
