White Fillings

White fillings are also known as composite fillings and are made with tooth coloured material to appear less noticeable when you smile, talk and laugh.

These fillings are also used to repair chipped teeth or minor tooth fractures keeping your teeth aesthetically pleasing.

If old silver fillings have begun to deteriorate, you can have them replaced with white fillings.

What is in a white filling?

The material used in white fillings is called composite resin. This is a mixture of powdered glass and acrylic resin; this is a safe and nontoxic material.

What are the benefits of white fillings?

White fillings preserve more of your natural tooth because your dentist doesn’t need to remove as much of the structure before filling it.

They are metal-free and ideal for patients who may experience metal allergies.

They do not experience sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.

How long will a white filling last?

With proper oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings and dental exams, a white filling can last for 7-10 years on average before it needs to be replaced.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
