White composite fillings can be placed in your tooth, and it will be restored to look practically the same as it did before it ever had a cavity. White composite fillings are fully hard when you leave the office, and they have very little post-operative sensitivity. So there will be no eating restrictions and in most cases no hot and cold sensitivity as you had with the old-fashioned silver-mercury amalgam fillings.
You’ll be able to laugh and talk without being embarrassed about showing ugly dental work in your mouth. Furthermore, since the fillings will be bonded to your tooth, your teeth will be stronger and less likely to break. Hinsdale laser dentistry—it’s the wave of the future.
