Even with good home oral hygiene and regular dental visits, many people will experience tooth decay in their lifetime. The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research reports that 92 percent of adults (aged 20 to 64) have had at least one cavity, and children’s baby teeth are especially susceptible. Fortunately, with treatment at Diamond Valley Dentist in Hemet, CA, a cavity does not spoil your beautiful smile. Dr. Nathan Jergensen offers tooth colored fillings that blend seamlessly.

What is a white composite filling?

Composite is a BPA-safe plastic blended with finely powdered glass for the gleam of natural enamel. Initially, the material is pliable. Dr. Jergensen applies it to a prepared tooth to fill the cavity and restore shape. Then, the filling is bonded with the tooth and hardened using a special curing light. After a bit of final sculpting, the tooth colored restoration is polished for a natural looking filling.

Why Hemet, CA patients like tooth colored fillings

Here are some of the other reasons patients in Beaumont, Menifee, Murrieta, and Perris prefer white fillings:

  • The procedure is completed in one visit. It typically takes about an hour per tooth treated.
  • Bonded fillings are conservative – maximum healthy tooth structure is preserved.
  • The material is strong and durable, suitable for molars as well as front teeth.
  • Since the restoration is bonded in place, it seals and strengthen the tooth. That helps to prevent decay under the filling or tooth breakage.
  • No special care is needed – just brush and floss filled teeth normally and maintain regular checkup appointments.
  • Mercury-free fillings are preferred by patients who want non-toxic, non-metal dental work.
  • Changing silver fillings to white can transform the smile!
