We recognise the importance of aesthetics as part of our commitment to generating healthier smiles. To brighten the smile line and offer you a sparkling, healthy smile, we use composite technology to replace silver fillings with a tooth-coloured composite.
White fillings are made using dental composite and resins. Although they are known as white fillings, the material is available in a variety of tooth colours. Your dental team precisely adjusts the colour of the composite to match the colour of your natural teeth.
Fillings are inserted into cavities that have been meticulously prepped and once any damage or decay are removed. This process aims to prevent further bacterial infection or decay. Your dental team will discuss how to care for your teeth and fillings as part of your daily oral hygiene routine.
Most treatments are performed with a rubber dam in place. Besides providing comfort by collecting any water spray, the rubber dam protects the area from moisture (which is necessary for an effective tooth bond).
After preparing the site, we use mild chemicals to clean and improve filing retention for a long-lasting fit. Using our blue light, we’ll cure the filling – in the shade you’ve chosen – in layers. For a lovely brilliant finish, we will check your bite and polish the filling.
For your comfort and peace of mind, white fillings can be done under a local anaesthetic if required.
The majority of us will need fillings at some point in our life. Most people choose white fillings because they are virtually unnoticeable, allowing them to laugh and smile with confidence. They are not only more physically appealing than silver amalgam fillings, but they also need less healthy tooth tissue to be removed when they are applied.
