Instead of metal, Dr. Bass’s first choice for treating decayed teeth is white porcelain fillings. Porcelain is the ideal filling material: it is safe, strong, and reflects light the same way natural enamel does, providing you with a realistic tooth restoration that perfectly blends with the rest of your smile. Dr. Bass also provides white composite fillings, which are directly bonded to your teeth for a similar natural look.
Some of the other benefits of white fillings include:
• Less sensitivity to hot and cold, protecting the structure of your tooth over time
• Requires less of your natural tooth tissue to be removed
• Bonded to your tooth, preventing future decay or loosening of the filling
