White fillings are hugely popular. Designed to match your teeth and merge impeccably with your smile, they provide a more natural, mercury-free alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings.
Also called composite fillings (or tooth-coloured fillings), this option also allows for a minimally invasive restoration, meaning more of your natural tooth can be preserved. Resin composite easily adheres to the surface of your tooth.
Composite fillings are made of resin and glass mixture. Sometimes this is a powdered glass which creates a natural bond with your tooth and may release fluoride to help prevent further decay.
White fillings can be used in the front or the back of the mouth. The Neem Tree offer a fast, affordable way to fix a number of problems, dependant on your individual situation. These include fixing cracks, chips and tooth decay. Discolouration (stains on the enamel and yellow tint in the dentin) is another issue that can be fixed by white fillings. At the Neem Tree we can easily fasten gaps between teeth, reform short or uneven teeth and replace metal or amalgam fillings.
Tooth-coloured fillings usually last around 7-10 years. This is less than silver-coloured fillings, but they’re still a very robust, effective treatment for most cavities. The chief benefit of white fillings is their colour. If your cavity is very visible, you may favour a tooth-coloured filling.
Typically, composite fillings are used for minor dental corrections. If you’re wondering whether this option is right for you and your situation, your Neem Tree dental specialist is on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding which restoration option is most appropriate for you.
