White Fillings
in Raleigh, North Carolina

In the past, a cavity filling was quite obvious. Fillings could be seen whenever someone would talk or laugh. Today, we have a subtler option for treating cavities. At Falls Pointe Dentistry, we use white fillings that match the shade of your natural tooth. White fillings, also known as composite fillings, aren’t noticeable to others, no matter where they are placed on a tooth.

What Is A Cavity Filling?

Cavities, also known as tooth decay, are literally holes in teeth that grow from bacteria buildup. Decay can occur because of poor dental hygiene or even just because of the shape of your teeth. For example, if you have a tooth that is hard to reach or teeth with deep pits, you may be more likely to develop cavities.

White fillings are made with resin composite that looks and feels like a natural tooth and can restore teeth with decay. A cavity filling can also prevent more serious dental issues, such as tooth loss, tooth infection, and oral pain.

What Are The Advantages Of White Fillings?

Choosing white fillings to treat your cavities is a great option for several reasons:

  • They appear natural. Your dental work won’t bring any attention from others, even if you have a filling on the front of a tooth.
  • Small and large cavities can be treated. Fillings can provide restoration for teeth that only have slight decay or those with more damage. If the damage is too extreme, we may recommend other restorative options.
  • Only a small amount of natural tooth needs to be removed for a filling. We like to keep as much of your original tooth in place as possible, so we only remove the portion of the tooth that has decayed.
  • They are safe for your mouth. There has been a lot of question about the safety of amalgam fillings, which is one reason we use composite fillings. There are no harmful substances used for these fillings.

This was hands down the best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist. The office was beautiful, the entire staff was incredibly kind and helpful. They explained everything they were doing, what all of my options were, and made me feel like I was a part of the decision making process.

Absolutely love this clinic. It's so clean and the front desk was so welcoming. The procedure was very smooth and we left really happy with the outcome. No more pain and I couldn't be happier.

This a great place. I haven’t done a good job taking care of my teeth over the years and have problems with my gums. They never made me feel bad about myself. They worked with my insurance so that my expenses were reasonable. It is a clean, professional environment and I’d feel comfortable bringing kids there.
