White fillings are an aesthetically-pleasing and healthier option for filling tooth cavities, replacing traditional metal amalgam fillings. At Devonshire Square Dental Studio we recommend white fillings to our patients who need this treatment for these reasons and more.
White fillings look and feel like natural teeth
White fillings may consist of porcelain ceramics or white dental composite, filling teeth cavities or cracks so that the difference between the filling and natural tooth is barely noticeable. Nowadays, white fillings are chosen because they are aesthetically fine and maintain a beautiful natural-looking smile. The surfaces of fillings are made smooth and polished to look and feel good.
White filling material is safer for health and environment
The white porcelain ceramics or dental composite resin is a healthier and more environmentally-friendly option than amalgam fillings that historically contained toxicity-producing mercury. White fillings are made through special processes for effective dental function and durability.
White fillings effectively restore teeth
Teeth that have cavities, are chipped or broken, may be filled with a white filling to strengthen tooth structure, preventing infection and tooth decay. White fillings may be used as tooth restorations for dental inlays, tooth caps and crowns. The type of white filling may differ depending on if the filling is in the front or back teeth.
White filler may be used to mask tooth discolouration
Stained and discoloured teeth may be masked with dental veneers made of dental composite or porcelain for beautiful white-looking teeth. Existing teeth may be whitened with teeth whitening but not dental restorations.
White fillings may be combined with other dental treatments
Some people have partial missing teeth and their own existing teeth. White fillings make teeth look natural and fit in well with other dental devices such as partial dentures and bridges.
