They will explore all of the options with you, informing you of the factors in the decision, which include the extent of the repair, wherein your mouth the filling is needed, and the cost.

White fillings, are dental fillings that restore and imitate the natural appearance of tooth structure. In addition to restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth colored fillings can also change the size, color and shape of teeth.
