Would help if the code above had Mathematica InputForm for Pi, ->, and < 
(or maybe it is meant to be <=, but inside a numerical Boole that 
distinction hardly matters). Anyway, you have discontinuous derivatives 
and possibly even discontinuous functions, I'm not sure. You can get rid 
of the white curves by blurring ever so slightly. One way to do this is 
as below.

eps = 10^(-4);
g[x_, y_] =
   f[x, y]/2 + (f[x + eps, y] + f[x - eps, y] + f[x, y + eps] +
       f[x, y - eps])/8;

ContourPlot[g[x, y], {x, -8, 8}, {y, -8, 8},
  Contours -> {0, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900}]

There might also be approaches using image processing functionality.
