Does Dr. Schoonover do white (tooth-colored) fillings?
• Absolutely! Only your dentist will be able to see these when they are finished. The beauty of these fillings is not only in their appearance. They can be easily repaired and if (heaven forbid) the patient gets new decay around one, the dark appearance of the decay can be detected much earlier against the white filling than against a dark metal filling. X-rays are also more effective diagnosing problems through cosmetic fillings. Just for the record, Dr. Larry also recommends gold fillings in certain situations when their location does not compromise esthetics (great looks).
