What are White Fillings?

White fillings are composed of dental composite and resins. Although they are called white fillings, the material comes in a wide variety of tooth colours. Your dental team skilfully matches this with the shade of composite with your natural teeth. Fillings are placed inside prepared cavities that have been caused by damage or tooth decay. This preparation removes any weakened tooth tissue and provides a restored surface to prevent bacterial infection further.

What should I expect if I choose white fillings?

As always, your comfort is one of our first concerns. Your dental team will do your filling under a local anaesthetic, and you can combine this with our exclusive Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM for a truly relaxed experience.

Most treatments are done with a rubber dam in place. The rubber dam not only protects the area from moisture (essential for an optimal tooth bond), but increases comfort by catching any water spray. Once the site has been prepared, we used mild chemical agents to increase the retention of your filing for a lasting fit. We will apply the filling – of your chosen shade – in layers which are then cured with a blue light. A polish and check of your bite are all that is needed for a beautiful bright finish.

Why should I consider white fillings?

At some point in our lives, most of us will require fillings of some kind. Most people prefer white fillings as they are nearly invisible, meaning you can enjoy laughing and smiling with confidence. Compared with silver amalgam fillings, these not only look more aesthetically pleasing but typically require less healthy tooth tissue to be removed when placing them.

How long will these fillings last?

These should last up to 10 years or more before replacement is required with the correct care and attention.
