Pros And Cons Of White Fillings In The Heart Of London


How can we help?

We are proud to be an amalgam-free dental clinic and we are delighted to provide our patients with white fillings. These fillings strengthen the teeth without impacting on the aesthetic of the tooth and they are safe and environmentally friendly.

Why would I need a filling?

Fillings are a very common dental treatment and they are usually used to fill cavities. Cavities are holes, which develop in the outer surface of the tooth. It is important to fill thee holes to protect the tooth from injury and to reduce the risk of bacterial infection spreading to others parts of the tooth. Once the enamel is weakened, the risk of further decay is increased and a filling can help to keep the tooth strong and healthy.

What are white fillings?

White fillings are fillings that are made from dental composite. Composite is a material, which is used commonly in dentistry to patch up broken and chipped teeth and improve the aesthetic of an individual tooth and it is available in numerous shades. We choose the closest shade to your natural tooth colour to make sure that you cannot tell the difference between the filling and the rest of the tooth.

White fillings have a number of advantages over mercury amalgam fillings. Mercury amalgam fillings are highly visible and they can make the smile look less attractive and there are also concerns about the impact of mercury fillings on human health and the environment. White fillings are designed to blend in with the natural tooth and they are also made from materials, which are considered to be very safe.

If you need a filling or you wish to replace existing mercury fillings with white fillings, we can help.
