Fillings

After decay is removed from a tooth, something must be placed in that space to give strength back to the tooth. Our office uses only Mercury-free restorations.

white dental filling in Charlottesville VAWhite fillings: White (mercury-free) fillings are an alternative to silver (amalgam) fillings. White fillings are made of a strong composite resin that is matched to the surrounding tooth color. In the past, white fillings were placed only on front teeth, but recently a stronger more durable material has been developed that can withstand the chewing pressure of back teeth.

White fillings are most commonly used for:

  • Cosmetic reasons
  • Patients who prefer mercury-free fillings
  • Patients with sensitivity to heat or cold - the composite resin doesn't conduct temperature changes as fast as silver or gold.
