What are the benefits of white fillings?

The main benefit of white fillings is that, as your dentist, we have a large choice of tooth-coloured shades to choose from. Selecting the shade that is closest to your own teeth in colour, we can design your white filling to match your own teeth in shape and colour resulting in it being practically invisible to the eye!

White fillings also require a less invasive restoration when filling the hole left by decay in your tooth. This means that less of your healthy tooth tissue would need to be removed with a white filling.

As you local Sidcup Dentist, we believe in providing high quality dental care for your long term benefit. We therefore recommend white fillings as a much more natural-looking and healthier alternative to amalgam fillings.

White fillings v silver (amalgam) fillings?

Traditional amalgam fillings contain a mixture of silver, tin, copper and mercury making them strong, durable and ideal for the back teeth that are less visible.

A white filling, which starts off life as a softer and easier material for our dentists to shape and mould, is far more effective in repairing chipped teeth or restoring decayed teeth in the more visible part of your smile and the front of your mouth. Once moulded to the desired shape, a blue light is then shone on the while filling to harden it and to fix it into it's final shape.

When would I require white fillings?
For teeth that are either cracked or chipped, tooth-coloured fillings may be used to build up the tooth to restore it’s look and feel. Closing gaps, reshaping uneven or short teeth and filling cavities caused by tooth decay may also be treated.
