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.
