If you need a filling but do not like the thought of unsightly metal in your mouth, composite fillings may be the right cosmetic dentistry option for you. Composite fillings are shaped and shaded to blend in with your natural teeth. A compound comprised of a mixture of plastic and glass, composite fillings are a popular cosmetic dentistry service offered by Dr. Kelvin White, DMD.
Due to their adaptability and application method, these fillings are versatile and can be used to fill chips or cavities in front teeth. They may also be used in rather large fillings, as the composite compound bonds directly to the tooth, unlike traditional metal fillings.

- Composite fillings are nearly undetectable, even when talking, laughing, or singing. No one will know that you have had dental work.

How Composite Fillings are performed by a Cosmetic Dentist in Paducah, KY
The cosmetic dentist applies the composite materials in layers. A special dental light is used to cure or harden each layer. This layering process fortifies your tooth structure. Once complete, our cosmetic dentist contours the filling material to look like your natural teeth and fit your bite. The filling is polished to prevent staining.
