White Composite Fillings
in Richmond

When decay or injury has caused damage to the outer tooth layer (enamel), intervention is necessary. If left untreated, the tooth is vulnerable to painful symptoms and the detrimental effects to its health. This is because the inner tooth layers and tooth nerves are now more exposed to external temperatures, pressure and bacteria. To restore the health and strength of a tooth, a dental filling can be used. At Short Pump Family Dentistry, we proudly offer white composite fillings, which provide optimal restoration in terms of both function and aesthetics.

Tooth Colored Fillings in Richmond

What is a Composite Resin?

When it comes to treating cavities or repairing minor tooth damage, we use the most preferred methods and materials in modern dentistry. Composite resin is a white plastic and glass mixture that blends with the natural color of your tooth. It is a strong filling material that can be customized to restore a tooth to its unique color, form and shape. Composite resin can be placed on nearly all tooth surfaces. Its versatility means that Dr. Tse may use it for cosmetic reasons, to fill a minor gap or cover up tooth stains, as well as restoratively to repair an area of decay.

During a composite filling procedure, the composite resin will be applied in layers. A focused light will harden each layer, and Dr. Tse will sculpt the composite to fit your unique tooth. Finally, the treated tooth will be polished to prevent staining and early wear. The entire procedure can be performed within minutes.

While amalgam or silver fillings have been used in the past, our composite, tooth-colored fillings are a better alternative for the following reasons:

  • Blended, natural aesthetics
  • Long-term safety, mercury-free
  • Lasting durability and strength
  • Affordable
  • Painless, quick procedure
