Why should I consider white fillings?

Nowadays fillings can be natural looking. Many people are more conscious about the way they look, so they don't want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile.

 

Benefits Include:

  • No more unsightly fillings
  • They come in a variety of shades to suit everyone
  • The colour can be matched to your normal toot so the filling appears natural so it isn’t noticed when you smile
  • They may be used as a veneer over stained or discoloured teeth
  • While fillings are free from mercury and other metals which amalgam contains
  • They require less preparation and treatment time than silver fillings
  • White fillings bond to the tooth therefore retaining as much as the original

Is it worth replacing my silver fillings with white fillings?

It is usually best to change fillings only when your dental team decide that an old filling needs replacing. If so, you can ask to have it replaced in a tooth-coloured material. White fillings in back teeth are not available on the NHS, but they can be carried out privately.
