White Fillings

 

Performed by Dr Riaz Mitha (both back teeth have large white fillings)

At the Dental Design Studio we have the experience and expertise to bring together the various advanced dental disciplines required create white fillings that not only look great but they function correctly, are healthy and will last for many years to come.

Modern white fillings are a combination of a resin and nano-particles of glass. This combination gives white fillings their dental name; composite resins.

White Fillings can be used to replace decay, just like silver fillings or replace old silver fillings for cosmetic reasons.

The enhanced cosmetics are the main benefit of white fillings, they can look just like natural teeth. Many people are also concerned about the potential risks of mercury containing silver fillings.

On average White Fillings should last for 7-10 years. We advise that white fillings are best when the cavity/ filling to be replaced is small to medium in size. When a larger filling is required a porcelain inlay or porcelain onlay is a better option.
