WHITE FILLINGS

Teeth that are decayed or have cavities can be effectively restored with white (or “composite”) fillings, which also help to prevent further damage to teeth.

Made of a resin base, composite fillings are durable, can be coloured in various shades to match your existing teeth, and because they are easily bonded to teeth surfaces, only a small amount of drilling is needed to prepare original teeth.

In special cases, your dentist may use a special composite that releases fluoride over time, giving your teeth the added protection to fight against decay.

Fillings are normally completed in a single visit. Your dentist will first remove any decay and thoroughly clean the affected teeth. They will then apply the composite filling in thin layers, setting each with a purpose-made light, until the filling is complete and can be shaped to your bite. Once the filling is complete, you are able to drink and eat normally.

White filling material is also used for other cosmetic purposes (see ‘related topics’).
