Made from biocompatible composite resin, white fillings are a durable and attractive alternative to metal amalgams (metal fillings). At Ladera Family Dentists, our Ladera Ranch dentist can fill cavities with white fillings and replace old metal dental work with white fillings as well. White fillings are suitable for adults and children.

Because metal is a temperature conductor, it expands and contracts when it encounters hot and cold. This can cause cracks where bacteria will hide and eat away at a tooth. Non-metal fillings aren’t temperature sensitive, so they do not expand and contract like metal does, thus there is a stronger bond between the filling and the tooth. We blend them to match your tooth shade so composite fillings look completely natural.
The benefits of composite fillings include:
With modern dental technology like DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection, As a Ladera Ranch dentist, Dr. Soheyla Marzvaan can find small cavities and fill them before they turn into larger problems. White fillings will improve your oral health and your smile’s appearance.
This composite material can also be used to cosmetically repair and restore some damaged teeth. This is done by adding the composite resin to a tooth that is chipped or discolored to restore it cosmetically. Once the composite resin is applied to the tooth, the dentist will use a special light to harden it. After it is hardened, the tooth is polished to limit staining and premature wear.
