White Fillings

For a terrific cosmetic result, Skarr Family Dental in Waukesha offers white fillings to our patients.  This esthetic material is used for treating decay primarily in the front teeth, but can also be placed in the back teeth for patients desiring a more natural looking filling.  White fillings are a mixture of glass and resin that produces a tooth colored filling material and are referred to as “composites” or “resins”. Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations and are designed to withstand moderate chewing forces.

If a patient at Skarr Family Dental wishes to have resins placed on their back teeth instead of amalgams, this can easily be provided.  However, most insurance companies will only cover the cost of an amalgam and the additional fee for the resin material will be the responsibility of the patient.  White fillings require a cavity that can be kept clean and dry during filling placement, and they are subject to both stain and discoloration over time. Skarr Family Dental in Waukesha will work with you to figure out the best dental filling treatment for your specific needs. For a more natural, healthy looking smile, call Skarr Family Dental today.
