For imperceptible repairs
White fillings are a more natural-looking way to repair decayed or damaged teeth as they are made from a tooth-coloured blend of plastic and glass. They support the remaining structure of a tooth and help to alleviate sensitivity.
Although white fillings are considered to be less durable than amalgam ones, modern materials have made them much more hard-wearing. However, the depth of the cavity and where it is located in the mouth will have a bearing on how long this type of filling lasts.
How they help
- protect and strengthen a damaged tooth
- natural appearance
- less invasive than amalgam fillings
