Bowtie Dental in Grand Rapids, MI offers Composite Resin, better known as white fillings, to our patients in need of cavity fillings or cosmetic dental work. A composite filling is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture used to restore decayed teeth. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
White fillings will help you achieve a smile you feel better wearing, since dentists 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 to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
Do not hesitate to ask Dr. Langellier for more information if you are curious about white fillings; he is happy to help you evaluate which type of filling is best for your individual needs!
