White Fillings

White fillings offer aesthetic flexibility and a practical solution to filling cavities in your teeth.

This natural-looking solution can be made to match your natural teeth. White fillings are also tooth-friendly and require less drilling as they are bonded to the teeth directly. This secure restorative method is usually preferred over amalgam/mercury fillings.

Getting a white filling

Before the filling is put in, we will carefully remove any plaque and decay from the tooth and cleanse the cavity. The tooth will then be thoroughly dried, and we will apply a special gel to bond the filling with the tooth. After a shade of composite is selected, your dentist will then shape it and use it to fill the prepared tooth.

Once complete, a special light is used on the white filling which hardens it and fixes it to the tooth. The filling and tooth are then polished to make sure they look and feel as natural as possible.

Tooth repair & restoration with white fillings

The resin used to make white tooth fillings is easy to work with, which means it can also be used to reshape your teeth. This has proven to be effective at restoring small chips and breakages. However, it is less suitable for larger gaps.

The Pro’s & Con’s

White fillings offer aesthetic flexibility, offer a practical solution to filling gaps in teeth and a visual solution to reshaping teeth.

Tooth Friendly – As white fillings are bonded to the teeth directly, no drilling is necessary in order to fix them to the tooth properly. This makes them much easier to put in, and makes them much more tooth-friendly.

Natural Looking – They can also be made to match the tooth they are fillings, which means they provide a really natural look.

Safer & Stronger – Amalgam fillings can leak or expand whereas white fillings do not, which makes them a stronger and safer filling option.

It may be the case certain patients require a dental crown or inlay rather than a white filling. This might be because the hole in the tooth is too big, or the tooth requires a more extensive restorative approach.

Our Walderslade dentist will discuss all of your options with you to ensure you are as informed as possible about the different types of fillings. We are proud to announce that our Walderslade practice is an amalgam / mercury-free practice.
