White Fillings

  • Due to advances in technology, patients can have cavities restored with tooth coloured materials (composite resin).
  • These modern materials are a much better alternative to traditional amalgam fillings as they do not release mercury, do not expand and cause the teeth to crack, are less invasive (don’t need as much tooth to be drilled), look very cosmetic and natural and can be used on front and back teeth.
  • They are a good option when around 30-50% of the tooth has decay.
  • If there is more damage to the tooth, your dentist may recommend a ceramic inlay or crown.
  • Dental fillings are used to restore worn or damaged teeth and treat tooth decay.
  • Since different types of fillings are better for different conditions, your dentist will help you decide which is right for you.
