What are white fillings?
White fillings are like normal fillings, except they’re made of powdered glass and ceramic added to a resin base. This makes them white.
The advantage of white fillings is they blend in with your teeth. This means people won’t notice them in your mouth.
They are not as durable as metallic fillings, but there are new materials on the market that are almost as good as silver amalgam fillings, which essentially making white fillings the best choice.
What’s it like to get a filling?
Fillings can usually be done on the same day in one dental visit, unlike other treatments such as crowns and veneers which could require multiple trips to the dentist. Most fillings are actually done during regular dental checkups, as the dentist would spot a cavity and want to treat it straight away before it gets any worse.
The procedure of getting a filling is simple. To help you avoid pain, your dentist will administer a local anaesthetic to numbs the area of your mouth being treated.
The dentist will then remove the diseased area of the tooth structure and fill the cavity with a filling.
