Tooth decay can cause severe damage to your smile unless you visit Nephi Dental Clinic to have it treated with white dental fillings. After Drs. Scott and Doug Petersen remove the decayed tissues of your tooth, we will place the filling to restore this structure. White fillings in particular are beneficial because they can match tooth color and they don’t contain harmful metals. Contact our dentists and team if you need to receive white dental fillings in Nephi, Utah.
A filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, and so forth. In just one appointment, the decayed or otherwise affected portion of the tooth will be removed, and the remaining space will be cleaned and filled.
There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. When choosing what material you would like, consulting with your dentist is strongly recommended. Composite fillings are white-colored and can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth. There are further options that are aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or the more visible areas of the teeth.
As with most dental restorations, white fillings are not permanent and may someday need replacement. However, they often last for many years, and provide you with a fully restored smile.
