White fillings which are also known as composite fillings are effective in replacing unsightly amalgam or silver fillings. They are used to replace part of a tooth that has been lost because of decay or through accidental damage.
With today’s modern filling materials, tooth coloured fillings are available that blend in naturally with the colour of your teeth. These fillings are mercury free and are as strong in most cases as amalgam fillings and can last considerably long periods of time if they are taken care of properly.
Our experienced dentist will make you feel comfortable, ensuring you don’t feel any pain during treatment. They will then remove any decay, together with old filling material, remove any weak parts of the tooth that may break later then he will wash and dry the tooth area before proceeding to fill in the affected area,
Some of the benefits of white fillings are:
- Unlike silver fillings, white filling materials are very effective in repairing damaged front teeth without leaving any unsightly marks.
- White fillings are less noticeable than silver fillings which turn black in the mouth. White Fillings come in a range of shades so they can be matched to the colour of the teeth.
- A tooth needs less preparation for white fillings than silver fillings.
