Today, we can use high quality white filling materials to re-create your smile’s natural appearance. This means that when you talk, laugh, or smile, nobody will be able to see your filling, so you can have complete confidence when you engage with others.
How good are white fillings?
The white filling materials we use here at 32Whites bond to natural teeth, so they can be used to repair decayed, chipped or broken teeth.
White fillings can be created in a variety of shades that closely match your own teeth, so you no longer need to have silver fillings!
What does having a white filling involve?
We usually carry out white fillings under a local anaesthetic, in order to numb the area around your tooth. Old filling material and any decay is removed if necessary before the new white filling is placed. We’ll lightly brush bonding agents onto the teeth being treated, and carefully place bonding material in small amounts, until the original tooth shape is re-created. Then, we will set the material by shining a small ultra violet light onto it for a few seconds. At the final stage of the treatment, we’ll finely polish your new filling.
What are the benefits of white fillings?
White fillings come in a range of shades, so we can match the colour and characteristics to your natural teeth as closely as possible. White fillings can also be used to reshape and rebuild teeth that are broken or have been worn down, due to the adhesive nature of the materials that are used. In general, a tooth that is going to have a white filling requires less preparation when compared to an silver or amalgam filling.
