Tooth fillings are needed when cavities form within the teeth.
If you require a tooth filling, or wish to replace your existing silver fillings, you may be pleased to discover that we only use white coloured, high quality restorative materials.
This ensures your teeth do not have that grey metallic look when you laugh or smile and your restorations enjoy a long life span. White fillings do not contain mercury and are ideal in achieving long term strength.
White fillings are not always appropriate for teeth with large cavities. An alternate would be to place porcelain restorations such as inlays or crowns.
Most dental filling procedures feature the following:
- Topical anesthetic to numb the area of treatment
- Decay removal from the affected teeth
- Tooth restoration using a white coloured filling
- Bite check to make sure your teeth align comfortably
The life expectancy of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.
White or tooth coloured fillings provide a healthier, more natural cosmetic result to the old-style silver or amalgam fillings. They also allow for a minimally invasive restoration, meaning your natural tooth can be preserved.
