Essential treatment for cavities and more
In keeping with modern dental preferences, SpaDental prefers to place white fillings.
White fillings are used more than any other filling material these days. As composite technology has improved, white fillings have become more durable.
Shaded to match your natural tooth colour, white fillings don’t show when you smile or talk. In addition, because the composite mixture of resin and glass bonds to the tooth, the dentist does not have to use the drill so much.
The material used for white fillings also repairs chipped or worn teeth.
White fillings are the best choice for patients concerned about the appearance of their teeth, or the component alloys used to make up the amalgam used in metal fillings.

Mending and preventing cavities
When you have a cavity, your dentist will plan the treatment with you. In most cases, a filling can be handled quickly, with minimum discomfort. If you are a nervous patient, or you have an aversion to injections, be sure to let your dentist know.
After the repair, remember that an effective oral hygiene routine helps to avoid more cavities.
Regular visits to your SpaDental practice will also help your dentist to spot any problems before they become worse. Our clinicians always have time to offer tips for healthier teeth.
