In modern-day dentistry, white tooth-coloured fillings are a favoured cosmetic option and a durable sealant that will last you for many years. The white fillings available at Tewantin Dental Centre are virtually unnoticeable by the naked eye, which means no more silver flashes or closed-mouth smiles. Our team loves to see you smile, that’s why we are passionate about ensuring a balance between cosmetic and restorative benefits.
What is involved?
Before we install a white filling it is necessary that we prepare the tooth. This will involve a dental assessment in order to determine the size of the filling required. We also take into consideration whether a filling is the best option for you, as sometimes a crown or inlay will be more beneficial to the health and integrity of your smile.
White fillings are a widely used alternative to metal fillings and do not inflict any further damage upon the tooth’s structure. White fillings are a mix of composite resin materials, which are applied to the damaged tooth in layers and set by an activated light. Once the cavity is filled, the restoration can be shaped and polished to match your natural tooth’s shade and shape.
