Dental Fillings are restorations which are used to fill cavities to support the tooth and avert further dental damage and tooth infection. In the past, mercury amalgam fillings were used, but white composite fillings have become increasingly popular as they provide excellent aesthetics.
Why choose white composite fillings over silver amalgam fillings?
Many patients prefer to have white composite fillings, rather than metal fillings, because they can blend in with the colour of the natural tooth.
We use the best dental composite materials to create durable, hard-wearing fillings, which provide both strength and style. The dental filling, once crafted, may be indistinguishable from the rest of the tooth and it will help to secure the tooth to reduce the risk of further decay or damage. Dental cavities are formed as a result of oral bacteria penetrating the tooth enamel; once a dental cavity forms, the dental infection can spread. A dental filling helps to prevent the spread of infection and keep the tooth strong and healthy.
Having white fillings is fairly straight-forward procedure. Before the composite filling material is applied into the cavity, the tooth is prepared by the cosmetic dentist and decayed tissue is removed from the tooth cavity. Once the dental cavity is completely clean, the cavity is etched prior to the application of bonding material. The correct shade of white filling material is then layered and contoured into the tooth cavity and set firm using an intensive light source. Once the white filling has set, we make any final adjustments to ensure a perfect cosmetic dental finish.
