  • White Fillings

If your teeth have been damaged by decay, you may require a filling to help protect them. White fillings give you the option of receiving subtle and strengthening treatment.

Unfortunately, we can’t always save your teeth from needing that little bit of extra support from fillings. While we work as hard as possible to protect your teeth from decay and the formation of cavities, sometimes the damage has already been done.

White Fillings

When a hole has formed in your tooth, this needs to be filled to prevent further deterioration or to stop bacteria invading the inside of your tooth causing infection.

When you visit Meadows Dental Care for a routine appointment, we will thoroughly examine your teeth. This will include taking x-rays to check for structural damage to the enamel. If we identify any holes or cavities, you may need a filling.

Fillings can be made from a variety of materials such as:

  • Amalgam
  • Porcelain
  • Composite resin
  • Metal

Prior to receiving your filling, we will prepare the affected tooth by cleaning it and removing the damaged enamel.

White fillings are made from composite resin. This material is bonded directly to the damaged tooth and is not only invisible to others but can be used to save more of your natural tooth, unlike traditional fillings where the damaged section must be entirely removed.

The composite resin allows your dentist to build up the affected area to give it support as well as to fill up the cavity.
