White Fillings | Dentist in Beaver, PA
One of the most well-known dental conditions is the cavity. A cavity occurs when tooth decay eats away at the enamel of your teeth, often leading to pain and more serious oral health complications. In order to prevent the cavity from continually harming your smile, we provide high-quality white fillings in Beaver, Pennsylvania. Dental fillings are a type of dental restoration used to fill in the empty spaces on your tooth left after decay has been removed. This is done to restore the strength and integrity of your tooth structure. While there are many types of materials available for dental fillings, we utilize white fillings, also called tooth-colored or composite fillings, because of their strong bond and natural aesthetic.
A white filling is made of composite resin, a durable plastic that we match to the exact color of your natural tooth. To apply a white filling, Dr. Pam Crumrine, our caring dentist, will remove all of the existing tooth decay and place the soft, malleable composite resin onto your tooth. She will then sculpt the material until it fits your natural bite and aesthetic perfectly. The white filling is hardened and polished to complete your beautiful dental restoration. If you are experiencing tooth pain, a white filling may be the right option for you. For more information, we invite you to call or visit our dental office today. You can reach us at 724-775-4860.
