Preserve Your Smile With White Fillings
We practice conservative dentistry with environmentally friendly composite dental fillings.
Treating a cavity involves taking out the decayed portion of the tooth and replacing it with restorative material. Dr. Chavez uses white fillings, which are tooth-colored composite dental fillings that can be used on front or back teeth.
Patients often prefer white fillings to silver fillings (mercury amalgam) because of their natural appearance and the fact that they eliminate the risk of mercury exposure. White fillings are highly durable and provide fracture resistance in small-to mid-size fillings that must withstand pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They also help to seal out bacteria that causes tooth decay.
