Tooth decay and damage commonly occur to your tooth enamel, the hard, outer portion of your tooth. If left untreated, decay can continue to eat away at your enamel and reach the inner portion of your tooth, eventually causing a painful infection and tooth loss. At Great Lakes Dentistry, we offer dental fillings to restore the strength and integrity of your tooth structure. Dental fillings are dental restorations that are directly molded onto the surface of teeth. We are pleased to offer white fillings in Royal Oak, Michigan, to beautifully restore your smile.
White fillings, also known as tooth-colored or composite fillings, are made from a durable form of plastic. White fillings are ideal for our patients who are looking to maintain an attractive aesthetic as well as a strong restoration. Each layer is sculpted to perfectly fit your tooth’s natural grooves and curves before being allowed to harden. There are many benefits to using white fillings when compared to other types of dental fillings and we would love to share these benefits with your family.
