At Barton Oaks Dental Group, the dental practice of Dr. Neeley, Dr. Nemeth, Dr. Hayashi, Dr. Grimm, and Dr. Bradley in Austin, Texas, we are pleased to offer white dental fillings for our patients’ healthy smiles. White dental fillings, or composite resin fillings are a tooth-colored filling that blends in with your natural smile. Composite fillings are a popular choice for your smile because they look natural. They are best-suited for small to mid-size cavities and can be used on both the front and back teeth, where they withstand the pressures of chewing.
Unlike amalgam fillings, with a composite filling, our dentists don’t need to cut away healthy tooth structure as the composite resin chemically bonds to the tooth. Composite fillings do shrink a little when they harden, making them technique sensitive, so they take a little longer to fill, and our skilled dentists make sure the filling is properly layered. Composite fillings last anywhere from 7-10 years when properly cared for and maintained.
If you need a cavity filled or have a worn down, chipped, or broken tooth that needs repairing, Drs. Neeley, Nemeth, Hayashi, Grimm, and Bradley in Austin, Texas, are happy to help. For more information about our composite dental fillings, or to schedule an appointment, you can reach our Barton Oaks Dental Group team by calling 512-327-6947 today!
