Dental filling is a technique that has been used in cosmetic dentistry for many years and can transform your smile in just a single visit.
The process involves the skilful/artistic use of the correct amount and colour of “dental composite”, which is a mouldable material with a paste-like consistency made from acrylic resins and a variety of fillers, depending on the type used. Bonding is used for a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, including filling dental cavities including white fillings.
Advantages of white fillings
- Composite filling integrates with the tooth and it doesn’t weaken the tooth as a silver filling does
- Safe – no hazardous materials
- They are natural and more aesthetically pleasing
- They last about 8 years
