White Fillings

Where a tooth has been affected by decay, cavities can be filled with composite fillings which are white in colour for a natural appearance.

White fillings are one of the most popular choices for patients requiring fillings as they not only restore teeth but are a subtle and attractive alternative to more traditional metal fillings.

Benefits of white fillings

Made from a combination of tiny plastic and glass particles, your Horton Dental Practice dentist will advise you whether a white filling is a suitable solution.

There are many benefits to white fillings over traditional silver amalgam fillings:

  • They can be colour-matched to your teeth, making your dental treatment virtually invisible
  • White fillings are mercury free and ideal for patients who are sensitive to metals
  • Unlike metal fillings, white fillings are not affected by temperature changes so can protect your teeth against fracturing
  • Depending on the location of the white filling in the mouth and the bite forces acting upon it, it can last for more than 15 years

If you are thinking about replacing your existing silver amalgam fillings with white fillings, please call Horton Dental Practice on 020 8391 9222 or click here to contact us.
