For a More Natural Looking Tooth!White tooth colored fillings are one of the most common cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry procedure performed at our dental practice here in Tulare. The tooth will have a more natural look and white tooth fillings are considered healthier than the traditional amalgam metal fillings.
The white tooth filling is made of a very durable mixture of plastic and glass, which when being applied, is very pliable giving it the ability to be precisely molded to create the look of a natural tooth.
Once we have drilled the tooth, a bonding agent is applied and the filling is then added and molded to the desired shape. We then cure (harden) it with a special light and the excess material is then removed. We complete the process by giving the filling a final shaping and polishing.
