Take a look through our patient gallery below to see real-life examples of how white fillings can transform your smile and make the fact that you’ve had dental work almost impossible to spot.
What is a composite white filling?
Composite fillings are usually resin-based and applied as a putty-like material that can be moulded perfectly to your teeth. White fillings are popular because they can be carefully colour-matched to blend in, making the fact that you’ve had dental work almost impossible to spot. Teeth normally need less preparation with white fillings than with amalgam fillings.
Are white fillings as good as amalgam fillings?
For a long time, it was the case that although white fillings were better from an aesthetic perspective, they weren’t as strong as amalgam fillings. These days, the materials we use for white composite fillings are much stronger and comparable to silver amalgam. White fillings tend to cause less sensitivity to hot and cold food and drinks. We would always discuss the life expectancy of a white filling with you before you approve your treatment.
Should I replace my amalgam fillings with white fillings straight away?
We may recommend that you wait until your amalgam fillings need replacing before putting white fillings in their place. It will depend on your individual case, so we’d always suggest that you come in to Harwood Dental Care for a consultation.
Are there alternatives to fillings?
In some cases, a dental crown or veneer may be a better way of repairing the appearance and function of a tooth. Again, it would depend on your individual case.
The cost on your treatment will depend on the size, position and number of fillings you require. As a guide, white fillings at Harwood Dental Care typically cost from £85.
