White Fillings can also be used to help improve the aesthetics of your smile.
If the decay is not too serious, our cosmetic dentist will remove all the decay and restore the tooth with a white (tooth coloured) filling.
Our dentists can safely replace silver amalgam fillings with white tooth coloured fillings.
Dental decay happens when the enamel and dentine of a tooth become softened by acid attack, producing a cavity (hole).
Benefits of White fillings
- The composite (white) filling can be matched to the shade of your teeth so it looks natural and blend in with the rest of your teeth.
- A composite (white) filling bonds to the tooth and integrated with it which makes the tooth stronger. Due to its bonding capacity, less tooth removal is required for its placement.
- The composite (white) filling does not include mercury.
