Fillings are perhaps one of the most common restorative needs that our patients require. It is our goal to restore cavities in their smallest forms, keeping fillings as small as possible. Not only does this mean that decay is caught earlier, it also means that the maximum amount of tooth enamel is preserved.
Tooth Colored White Fillings
There’s no need to keep using silver amalgam fillings when there’s a better option. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Lance Timmerman implements tooth colored composite restorations in his office. Composite fillings bond with the tooth enamel to help rebuild the tooth, rather than simply patch it up like a silver filling.
Now when you smile, you can feel confident about how your teeth look. Your teeth will match each other and the composite fillings will blend right in – there won’t be any dark grey or silver areas showing when you’re laughing or talking. Tooth colored fillings are the most conservative type of restoration available.
White fillings are perfect for:
- Chipped or broken front teeth
- Cavities near the gumlines
- Exposed root surfaces
- Areas that show when you smile
- Replacing silver fillings

A Cosmetic Approach to Restorative Dentistry
Dr. Timmerman uses composite material for the fillings that he provides to patients. Composite restorations bond directly with tooth enamel, requiring less tooth preparation. The material is also easily matched to the color of the patient’s natural teeth, allowing the filling to blend right in with his or her smile.
Mercury Free, Minimally Invasive
White fillings are metal free and mercury free. Most of them last as long as 10 years when you care for them properly. Since the material is capable of bonding with your tooth, these composite fillings are the most minimally invasive type of restoration dentistry available.
Using this method allows Dr. Timmerman to maximize the amount of healthy tooth structure already in your mouth. His skilled and artistic touch allow him to rebuild your smile one tooth at a time, for a look that will turn heads! Contact Dr. Timmerman to schedule your appointment today.
