White Fillings

 

Many patients have found that changing those dull, ugly unnatural looking metal fillings to flawless, white teeth is a great way to enhance their smile. And the magical filling material that makes it all happen is composite resin.

Composite is a tooth-coloured mixture of specialized polymer resins filled with microscopic ceramic particles. Composites white fillings can be used to fill cavities, and for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the colour of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.

Strength and aesthetics are the main advantages of white fillings. These materials are incredibly strong and have the ability to duplicate the strength of tooth structure. When composites bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure, it helps to prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes. In addition, we can blend shades to create a colour identical to that of the actual tooth.
