If you require a filling for your tooth, the option of choice would be a white filling that matches the colour of your natural tooth. Any existing metal (Amalgam) fillings can be replaced with tooth-coloured “white” fillings, this will allow you to smile without any metallic reflection, giving you a more natural appearance.
Time: 0.5-1 hour
Anaesthetic maybe required
We aim to conserve and preserve your natural tooth
Excellent long-term results
How the White filling procedure works:
- This starts with the safe removal of any decay from your tooth, taking out the metal(or Amalgam) if you have them.
- A new filling is placed, made from a very hard tooth-coloured material and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you chew and bite for a long period of time.
- This process is completed in one visit and will not be visible when you smile.
Please Note: Our Entire Practice is truly Amalgam (mercury-free), although we respect this material and its historic use in Dentistry, we have decided not to use it for the foreseeable future. Removal of Mercury containing fillings is also done with the upmost care, utilising specialised equipment, training, experience, and skills necessary to dramatically minimise exposure to mercury during amalgam removal.
