At Eledent Smiles, our experienced dentists can repair cavities with composite fillings that match your natural tooth colour. Our affordable, high quality White Fillings cost from only £130. Whether you require a new filling or have existing silver fillings that you would like to replace, we would be delighted to help.
Silver amalgam fillings have long been the most common way to repair teeth affected by decay. They are a very effective way to fill cavities - but they can be very noticeable when the mouth is open while talking or laughing. This can make people feel self-conscious and less inclined to show off their teeth.
White Fillings have now become a very popular alternative to the traditional metal option. They offer all the same benefits in terms of function – but as the material used is the same shade as your natural tooth colour, they are much more discreet and hard to spot. Go for the natural look and smile with confidence!
Unlike traditional silver fillings which are created from an amalgam of metals, White Fillings are made from a durable, composite material that includes acrylic resin and powdered glass particles.
White Fillings are very effective and durable, though they are not as strong and hard-wearing as metal fillings and more care should be taken to protect them. Your dentist may well recommend that metal fillings are used where more durability is needed, such as the the chewing surfaces of teeth at the back of the mouth.
Before treatment begins, the area surrounding the affected tooth will be numbed using a local anaesthetic. The dentist will then clean and prepare the tooth, removing any decay or previous filling material. The cavity is filled using the tooth coloured composite resin material, which is hardened under UV light and polished for the final result.
An appointment for a White Filling will usually take no longer than hour, with the exact time depending on the individual case.
We aim to make our treatments as affordable as possible and ensure our prices are competitive compared to other local dentists. Our prices for White Fillings start from only £130. Please call 01344 297 001 for more details.
