What are White Composite Fillings?

White composite fillings are a modern alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings, offering a natural appearance while restoring tooth strength and functionality. Crafted from a composite resin matched to the shade of your teeth, these fillings blend seamlessly with your smile, providing both aesthetic and functional benefits.

Our treatment process

Thorough Assessment

Our specialists will thoroughly examine the affected tooth to assess the extent of decay and determine the most suitable treatment approach. Only when you're happy, we'll progress with the next steps.

Composite Application

We will carefully rebuild the structure of the tooth, layer by layer, ensuring a precise fit and natural appearance. The resin will be sculpted to match the contours of your tooth, providing both functionality and aesthetics.

Hardened with Curing Light

Once the composite material is applied, it will be hardened using a special curing light. This process ensures that the filling becomes strong and durable, capable of withstanding the rigours of daily use.

Polishing of the filling

The filling will be polished to achieve a smooth and natural finish. This final step not only enhances the appearance of the restoration but also helps to prevent plaque buildup and maintain optimal oral hygiene.

How does it work?

Tooth-coloured fillings use a durable composite resin material that chemically bonds directly to the tooth structure. This allows the filling to restore the tooth from within by integrating into the remaining enamel and dentin. The composite resin is made up of ingredients that mimic the natural translucency of tooth enamel for a seamless cosmetic result.
