Etwall Dental Practice will often treat many people who are suffering with tooth decay or broken teeth. In such instances, our dental experts may recommend white fillings, made of tooth-coloured resin and glass mixture. This procedure not only has the capability to improve your oral health but also restore significant confidence in personal appearance.
The most valued reason people get white fillings is because of their aesthetic appeal. Offering a more natural look, many people are conscious of having silver fillings show when they laugh or smile. Regardless of material, it’s vitally important to ensure you receive fillings when required, as they will form a crucial part maintaining your oral health. Some of the other advantages are as follows:
Following a full clean of the treatment site, removing any plaque and decay, the tooth surface is coated with a gel and bonding solution. Once the bonding solution has been cured using an ultraviolet light, the white filling material is placed into the cavity and then moulded to match the tooth contours. The final steps involve curing the dental fillings to harden them, before they’re trimmed and polished to look like a natural part of your mouth.
Despite their aesthetic and cosmetic advantages, white fillings are actually less long-lasting than silver amalgam fillings. That doesn’t mean white fillings do not have a long life expectancy, however. This will very much depend on where the filling is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth collide when you bite. Our dental experts will be able to provide a more accurate estimation as to how long your fillings will last.
Due to their aesthetic appeal, white fillings are predominantly used for front teeth.
Our dental experts will only recommend changing filling material when an old filling needs replacing. When such an instance arises, patients can request to have a tooth-coloured material filling. Furthermore, white fillings on back teeth aren’t always successful due to their durability, so your dentist may recommend crowns or inlays.
