About white fillings
White fillings are made from dental composite and resins and they strengthen and protect decayed teeth without any negative impact on the aesthetic of the tooth. Modern materials are strong and durable, so you can enjoy both substance and style.
We are able to use white fillings in most cases and we can replace old fillings, as well as fitting new ones. If you’ve had a filling for several years or you simply want to replace visible metal fillings with tooth-coloured fillings, we can help.
What happens when you have a filling?
If you are having an old filling replaced, the filling will be removed and disposed of before the new filling is placed; the tooth will be cleaned thoroughly and bonding agent will be applied to the surface of the cavity. Once the cavity is completely clear and clean, the composite will be inserted and shaped to fit the hole; it will then be hardened using a curing light. The procedure to place a filling is carried out under local anaesthetic, so you won’t feel a thing! It usually takes just one hour and you’ll be free to go home afterwards.
Fillings don’t last forever but they should last up to 5 years provided that you care for your teeth well.
