Fillings are used to restore minor tooth damage and decay. We provide white dental fillings in Paso Robles, California, to aesthetically and effectively restore your teeth and improve your oral health. White fillings, which are also known as composite fillings or tooth-colored fillings, are created using composite resin.
Our experienced dentist, Dr. Kaitilin Riley, will match the shade of the composite resin to your natural tooth to ensure that your filling blends in beautifully with your smile. White fillings contain no metal and, unlike amalgam fillings (also known as silver, metal, or mercury fillings), do not contribute towards the weakening or cracking of teeth. In fact, the composite resin can even protect against future decay by bonding with and strengthening the natural tooth structure.
To place a dental filling, Dr. Kaitilin Riley will first remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth before filling in the tooth with composite resin. Our dentist will then shape and polish the filling to comfortably fit your bite. We may also recommend white fillings in order to replace older amalgam fillings. Please call 805-238-3880 or visit our dental office soon to learn more about the benefits of white fillings and to schedule your consultation with our dentist. We are eager to restore your smile!
