A discrete and attractive alternative to standard silver-grey fillings. People won’t even know that you have a filling.
Addressing a common problem
Most people will experience tooth decay at some point in their life, and fillings are therefore likely for most of us. Unfortunately, the traditional form of filling is a metal (amalgam) material that looks out of place in the mouth. Thankfully, the latest generation of white fillings provide a much more aesthetically pleasing alternative.
Although called ‘white’, the fillings are available in a wide range of shades. We take care to match your natural tooth colour as closely as we can. In many cases, the result will be virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth. In addition, we can use white filling techniques to mask imperfections on the teeth, in a process much like veneering.
More natural fillings
Now, whenever new fillings are needed, a more natural appearance can be achieved. Whether treating tooth decay or repairing worn or chipped teeth, you can benefit from white fillings. As well as achieving a better look, this material is also less likely to shrink than metal and can contribute to less sensitivity to extreme heat or cold.
Replacing existing fillings
Do you have existing metal fillings that are letting down your smile? They can be replaced with white fillings in a quick and straightforward process. It’s usually done without pain or discomfort and you’ll leave our practice with a more natural look. As with new fillings, replacements can be colour-matched to your teeth.
