Cosmetic White Fillings

If you have a cavity, it is imperative to get a filling.  Fortunately, Dr. Nick Mobilia of Elite Dental Arts has plenty of materials for you to choose from.  However for smaller restorations, white fillings are highly suggested. Also known as composite resins and tooth-colored fillings, these types provide solid durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing.  They are typically placed on the front and back teeth and are a good choice for people who prefer a more natural appearance.

Resin composite fillings are made of ceramic and plastic compounds. Because resins mimic the appearance of natural teeth, these fillings have been used for years. The main advantage of composite fillings includes an approved aesthetic appearance, since Dr. Mobilia can blend shades to create a color nearly identical to that of the actual tooth. Composites bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure, which helps prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
