White fillings can drastically improve the look of your smile. At Deerfield Family Dentistry we offer white fillings as an alternative to, or to replace old silver amalgam fillings. Replacing old silver fillings with white fillings is a simple process that will instantly brighten your smile. The white fillings will be matched to the natural color of your existing teeth. Both bonding and white fillings are safe, affordable and appealing solutions to brightening your smile.
If your teeth have cracks, gaps or if your teeth are stained or discolored, bonding is a simple and easy method to enhance the overall sparkle of your smile. The bonding process begins with applying an adhesive gel on the affected tooth or teeth. Then a composite resin is molded and sculpted over the adhesive gel. After the resin has been applied, an ultraviolet light will set and harden the resin. Then the resin is polished, giving your smile a new sparkle.
