White Fillings: The Discreet Way Of Tackling Decay

Here at Meliora Dental, we can use white fillings to fill cavities at the back of the mouth, and to repair chips and recontour the teeth that are most visible when you smile. Your repair will be invisible once placed, unlike metal fillings which can be noticed easily by others.

The filling material is bonded directly to a given tooth, reducing treatment time, and making the process altogether more straightforward. Once the decay affecting the tooth has been removed, the tooth is sealed with the filling, which will fit as seamlessly as a puzzle piece within the chewing surface.

FAQs

Are White Fillings As Strong As Metal Amalgam Fillings?

Overtime, white fillings have come to be just as robust as metal fillings, provided they are placed with skill and accuracy. Our dentists have completed hundreds of white fillings cases, so you can be sure the process will result in a long-lasting result.

My Silver Filling Used To Crack Easily – Is This The Case With White Fillings?

One of the numerous benefits of white fillings is their resistance to cracking as a result of temperature changes. Enjoying hot and cold food and drink will not result in expansion and contraction of the filling, something which affects metal fillings, and causes them to sustain cracks.
