Why would you need a filling?
You can sometimes spot a dental cavity, with the area surrounding the hole generally looking dark brown or gray. When you have a dental cavity, a filling is one of the treatment options, depending on the depth of the carious lesion. At Pelham Hills Dentistry, we use BPA-free, composite white resin fillings which are carefully color-matched to the natural shade of your teeth. Modern dentistry has provided us with materials that combine beauty as well as strength, without the use of metal when filling teeth. Tooth restorations with white composite fillings are close to their original strength and appearance.
