Dental fillings are restorative materials used to reestablish the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure. Cavities are the leading cause for people to need dental fillings, making them an essential dental treatment procedure to restore and protect the teeth. For many years, amalgam fillings have been used to fill cavities. While these fillings did the job they needed to, they left dark spots in the teeth that are noticeable to others. As part of our cosmetic dentistry treatments at Gordon Dental of Leawood, we are proud to provide white composite fillings for those who need to have a cavity filled.
Dr. Philip J. Gordon is highly trained to provide white composite fillings to repair the health of teeth that have cavities present. White composite fillings are made to withstand the normal wear and tear associated with chewing, and they will last for years to come to provide the protection your tooth, or teeth, needs.
