White Tooth Fillings
Tooth coloured fillings for a more lifelike appearance
For over 150 years standard fillings have been made out of a silvery-grey material called ‘amalgam’. This is considered one of the strongest and longest-lasting materials for fillings. However, many people find it unattractive and some are concerned about possible health risks.
White fillings are now a popular alternative to amalgam fillings. The new dental materials mean it is much easier to find a perfect match for the shade of a particular tooth. In most cases, it is quite impossible to see that the tooth even has a filling. Sometimes white filling material can be used to cover unsightly marks on teeth, in a similar way to veneers.
Whether it is a front or back tooth the advantages of our white fillings include:
- Tooth coloured
- Mercury Free
- Natural Looking
At Norfolk House Dental Care we use the latest in composite, white filling materials. These new materials available have properties superior to silver amalgam and if placed correctly by an experienced dentist can last for many years.
