White Fillings in Benfleet

Say goodbye to dark and unsightly amalgam fillings. We offer fillings matched to your tooth shade, so you can enjoy a discreet restoration following a cavity. Replace existing fillings to instantly eliminate sensitivity.

What are white fillings?

White fillings are a tooth-coloured alternative to silver amalgam fillings. Silver amalgam has long been the choice for cavity fillings because it is cheap, strong and long-lasting. Composite resin is becoming increasingly popular for dental restorations as it looks like natural tooth material, leading to a more discreet restoration.

Colour-matched to your smile

Tooth coloured fillings are made from glass particles, synthetic resin and a setting ingredient. They have the advantage of blending seamlessly with your natural teeth, so you will not need to feel self-conscious when you talk, laugh or smile.

A white filling requires very little of the tooth structure to be removed. The decaying portion is removed and very little of the healthy tooth is removed. The white fillings bond directly to your teeth, providing a strong and long-lasting restoration.

Replacing amalgam fillings

If you have dark amalgam fillings in your teeth, you don't have to live with them. Replacing your amalgam fillings with white fillings is a quick and simple procedure. Dark fillings can cause increased sensitivity to hot and cold, but white fillings do not.

Replacing your amalgam fillings is a simple procedure that takes about the same time as a cavity filling. If your amalgam fillings are causing your discomfort or embarrassment, book a consultation to learn how you can upgrade to tooth coloured fillings.
