White fillings, commonly referred to as composite fillings, are often used to repair dental cavities caused by tooth decay.
This material is made from composite resins that match your natural teeth in shade and opacity.
White fillings – or composite fillings – bond chemically to the natural enamel and dentine of your tooth. With this bonding technique, less natural tooth is removed during the preparation stage before filling the tooth, as opposed to amalgam fillings (silver fillings), which must be mechanically held in place.
Furthermore, white fillings are more convenient for our patients since they are cured in the surgery using a blue light – this means they can eat and drink immediately after surgery as long as they are not numb.Back to Cosmetic Dentistry
