White fillings

With white fillings it is almost impossible to see that the tooth even had a filling.

Old metal amalgam fillings can be replaced to give your teeth that natural look once again. We will usually numb the tooth and its surrounding area with a local anaesthetic, and will drill the decayed material from the tooth. When the decay has been removed, the tooth will be filled. For tooth coloured fillings, the material is placed into the hole in layers, with a special light being shone on each layer to speed up the setting process. We will then shape, polish and add a layer of glaze to the filling, so that it looks as realistic as possible.
