White fillings, also known as composite fillings, are made from a versatile tooth-coloured resin. They are a great alternative to silver amalgam fillings, as they can be perfectly matched to the shade and texture of your natural teeth.
Repairs and enhances
We use fillings for a couple of different uses. Fillings not only help to restore and protect decayed teeth, but they can also be used for cosmetic improvements, such as improving the colour of your teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
From the minute you pick up the phone to make an appointment, to the moment you leave the practice, our friendly, experienced team will be here for you.
Why choose white fillings?
- Looks and feels natural
- Safer than mercury fillings
- Prevents further damage to teeth
- Insulates teeth from extreme hot or cold temperatures
We’ll start by removing any decay and shaping the cavity to prepare the tooth for the filling. The bond layer is then applied, which gives the filling better sticking power, and set hard under a light. The composite filling is then added layer-by-layer and set until we’ve created the desired effect. We finish off by polishing the filling to blend it in and make it look shiny and natural.
