At Fischer Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, the dental practice of Dr. Charles Fischer and Dr. Katherine Fischer in Centreville, Virginia, we are pleased to offer white dental fillings for our patients’ healthy, beautiful smiles. Composite resin fillings are a tooth-colored filling that blends in with your natural smile. Composite fillings are a popular choice for your smile because they look natural. They are well-suited for small to mid-size cavities and can be used on both the front and back teeth, where they withstand the pressures of chewing food.
Unlike amalgam fillings, with a composite filling, our dentists don’t need to cut away healthy tooth structure because the composite resin chemically bonds to the tooth when setting. Composite fillings do shrink a little when they harden, so they are technique sensitive which means the take a little longer to fill. Our dentists make sure that the filling is properly layered. Composite fillings generally last anywhere from 7-10 years when properly cared for and maintained.
If you need a cavity filled or have a worn down, chipped, or broken tooth that needs repairing, Dr. Charles Fischer and Dr. Katherine Fischer in Centreville, Virginia, are here to help.
