Fillings are an incredibly common dental treatment, used to repair damaged teeth and fill in cavities. White fillings are an aesthetic alternative to traditional metal fillings as they are created using a tooth-coloured material called Composite resin. This aesthetic material can be used to repair and restore both front and back teeth providing a strong, long lasting and life like solution.
As the composite filling is layered directly onto the surface of the tooth, there’s no need to remove any part of the tooth to make space for the filling. The filling supports the structure, helping to prevent further breakage.
Metal amalgam, or mercury, fillings have been used for many years to treat cavities. Although they are long lasting and strong, they are easily visible and can look unattractive. White fillings are a great alternative to traditional silver fillings for restoring teeth
To prevent decay forming around the composite filling, it is important to brush at least twice a day and see your dentist for regular check-ups.
