By choosing white fillings, you can have a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
In the past, a dental filling often used material that caused the tooth to look different from the rest. These fillings are known as amalgam fillings and were made of a mixture of mercury, tin, copper, and silver. Some dentists also used gold fillings. When someone who had received one or multiple fillings opened their mouth, you could spot the metallic color from a mile away. Luckily, advancements in the dental industry have improved the way patients have their cavities filled. Kenneth R. Russell DDS offers white fillings to patients in and around Winston-Salem, North Carolina, helping to improve the appearance of their smiles while providing this important dental treatment.
When you have a cavity in one of your teeth, it’s important to have it filled as soon as possible. The decay that causes damage to your teeth can get worse, potentially leading to complete loss of the tooth and even loss of the bone that supports it.

We’ll talk to you about the options, so you feel more comfortable during the procedure.
