White fillings are becoming more popular due to the increase in demand of natural looking teeth. At our dental clinic we offer a wide range of treatments to meet your needs, call us today to book a free consultation with one of our dental professionals.
If you have cavities or have suffered from some form of tooth decay, you may need a filling. Cavities and tooth decay is when the tooth or teeth have been rotted away to expose a hole in the tooth. Your dentist will remove the decay and bacteria from the tooth or teeth to prevent it from reaching the nerve of the tooth. If the nerve is reached, there can be a feeling of extreme sensitivity or even pain.
There are many reasons to get white fillings. The main reason people choose to have white fillings over silver amalgam fillings is because it looks natural, and you can still keep that picture perfect smile as they are tooth coloured and won’t stand out or be obvious. In addition they are safer than the silver amalgam fillings because they don’t contain mercury in them.
White fillings are good if you have small cavities or a little amount of decay to the tooth or teeth. However if you have large cavities, then they may not be suitable. Don’t fear though you won’t have to have noticeable silver amalgam fillings for large cavities, because we will always do our best to give you a picture perfect smile. For larger cavities we can explore the option of Ceramic inlays. For more information on white fillings and ceramic inlays please book in for a free consultation to discuss the options available to you, with one of our dental professionals.
