WHITE FILLINGS IN SULLIVAN COUNTY, CATSKILL MOUNTAINS UPSTATE NEW YORK
Composite dental materials have been used as white fillings for over 20 years and have a great success at restoring teeth. Fillings are needed when a loss of tooth structure has occurred and a material must be used to replicate the tooth form, anatomy and color. Poor diet, teeth grinding, trauma and lack of proper oral hygiene are some of the factors that cause tooth decay. As the decay erodes the tooth it becomes weakened and can cause pain or sensitivity to the patient.
A white filling is bonded to the tooth to create a chemical adhesion making these restorations very long lasting and aesthetic. Bonding can also be used to change the aesthetics of teeth and can be used in smile design for chair side veneers, closing of a gap or just evening out the color differences between the teeth.
