White fillings made from composite resin match the color of your teeth. If our Cascade and Grand Haven dentists detect a cavity during your routine teeth cleaning or dental exam, they may recommend a cavity filling. Like the name suggests, a filling fills the hole left after our dentist drills out tooth decay.
First, our dentist will administer local anesthesia to numb the tooth. Once your tooth is properly numb, our dentist will remove the decayed tooth matter before filling the hole with composite resin.
It will take a few hours for the numbness to subside. However, you’ll be able to return to work or school after your appointment. Best of all, no one will be able to see your white fillings.
White fillings blend in with natural tooth enamel so you don’t have to feel self-conscious about metal on your teeth. Many of our patients appreciate that composite fillings can go unnoticed by family, friends, and coworkers. Composite fillings are especially useful for those teeth that show when you smile and talk.
Our West Michigan cosmetic dentists can protect both the appearance and the health of your smile with cosmetic fillings. With five convenient West Michigan locations, we have the capability of handling all of your family’s dental needs. Call MI Smiles Dental today at (616) 974-4990, or schedule your appointment online.
