Essential treatment for cavities
SpaDental practices offer a choice between white fillings and amalgam (silver metal) fillings. White fillings are a popular alternative to amalgam as they are shaded to match your natural tooth colour and can be used to repair chipped or worn teeth, as well as to fill cavities. White fillings are the first choice for patients concerned about the appearance of their teeth, or the alloys used to make the amalgam.
Amalgam fillings are
- a solution to pain
White fillings are
- a cosmetic solution
- natural in appearance
- less invasive than amalgam fillings
Mending and preventing cavities
When you have a cavity that needs treatment, your dentist will discuss with you your choice between modern white fillings or cost effective amalgam fillings, helping you to reach the best decision.
After the repair, remember that an effective oral hygiene routine helps to avoid more cavities.
Regular visits will also help your dentist to spot any problems before they become worse. Our clinicians always have time to offer tips for healthier teeth.
