White Tooth Fillings Provide a Flawless Tooth Repair
You Don’t Have to Live with Unsightly Silver Fillings Anymore
What are White Fillings?
In general, fillings are used to repair damage caused by decay, fracture, or cracks in the teeth. White fillings are made using a mixture of synthetic composite resin material that can be blended to match one’s natural tooth color. Dr. Mark Phillipe, DDS, and Dr. Derek Hauser, DDS, routinely use this material to help restore tooth structure and prevent further damage.

In the past, dentists were limited to using silver amalgam, a mixture of mercury and other metals, to treat cavities and decay. Thanks to technological advances, patients and their families now have options that eliminate the need for unsightly metals left in the mouth.
Composite resin is made to withstand the rigors of normal tooth functionality. Dentists using this material can precisely blend, sculpt and bond it in a way that leaves aesthetically pleasing results. This blend does not contain any mercury or other metals and results in a natural finish, closely resembling the look and feel of your surrounding teeth.
What are the Advantages of Choosing a Composite Tooth Filling?
Using white composite to repair decayed or cracked teeth has advantages that make it the most widely used restoration product in the United States today. When visiting Lakefront Family Dentistry, we will discuss restorative options to help decide the best action needed to restore and retain a beautiful smile.
Advantages of White Fillings
- White composite can be blended to closely match the color of surrounding teeth.
- The materials used do not contain any mercury or other metals.
- The composite mixture bonds directly on the tooth, reducing the need for drilling.
- Composite resin fillings help to restore tooth structure and can last 10 years or more.
Lakefront Family Dentistry recommends composite restorations for many of our patients. Dr. Phillipe and Dr. Hauser are well-known as the best cosmetic dentist in the Inland Empire and receives a large number of referrals from orthodontists and oral surgeons in our area.
Many patients also visit our office to have silver amalgam replaced with natural looking white tooth fillings for cosmetic reasons. Multiple trips to our office are not necessary because this procedure is completed in one visit. Precious time saved can be better spent at work or with family.
Whether it’s a tooth filling, root canal, or cosmetic work, rest assured all of your needs can be taken care of right from the convenience of our beautiful office.

Are Dental Fillings the Best Treatment For Dental Cavities?
Left untreated, cracks in a tooth or damage caused by decay will worsen over time. Our dentists let all patients know the mouth is the most important part of the human body, as it is the gateway for every breath of air and every bite of food we ingest. Failure to maintain proper oral care can result in a diseased mouth and body!
Resulting damage from tooth decay often requires more invasive procedures to improve tooth structure. White composite helps restore strength to damaged teeth and also helps prevent further decay in most cases.
When visiting our office, Dr. Phillipe and Dr. Hauser personally tend to each patient by ensuring their needs are met and questions are answered completely. Each dentist will conduct a thorough oral examination to assess the extent of any decay or a dental cavity exists.
When White Fillings May Not Be an Option
In cases of advanced decay, root or nerve infection, we may recommend other dental services, such as a root canal and porcelain CEREC crown. With CEREC, you can get one or all your teeth done in just one visit, and our CEREC doctors will match the color of your surrounding teeth perfectly.

with CEREC Crowns and Absolutely Loves The Results!
What is a CEREC Crown?
CEREC is an advanced dental system that allows dentists to create high-quality, restorative porcelain teeth right from our medical office. A small percentage of dentists across the country are qualified to use this technology in their facility.
Lakefront Family Dentistry is one of the few qualified offices offering CEREC services in the Inland Empire. The CEREC system allows the dentists to use a high-resolution camera for creating a three-dimensional digital image of the mouth. Specifications taken from the image are used to create high-grade porcelain crowns or veneers in only minutes…while you wait.
Our skilled staff uses this technology every day for creating and installing permanent dental solutions. Many of our patients enjoy the convenience of same-day services, not typically available with other dentists in our area.
During your appointment, we will discuss CEREC alternatives to help decide which restoration techniques are best to improve or maintain good oral health. You can be confident, whichever option you choose, our staff has the experience to produce flawless results, which can be obtained in a single visit.
