White fillings are a composite material of plastic and fine glass particles, which match the natural colour of your tooth.
The material used for white fillings is durable, long-lasting and able to withstand the force of your bite. The procedure is the same as with other fillings. Your dentist will remove any old amalgam material, clean the surface of your tooth and then apply the composite filling to your cavity for an improved natural look.
You may choose a white filling to preserve the natural look of your smile or simply for a stronger, potentially safer solution as a cavity filling.
Often patients will choose to replace their existing amalgam fillings with white fillings, for a more natural looking smile. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with having an amalgam filling. They pose no risk to your health and can be as durable as a white filling. However, if you would like them replacing, we would be able to do this for you.
Although we offer this service, it’s important to know that silver amalgam fillings are not dangerous. Find out more here.
You can have your amalgam fillings replaced from as little as £72.50, which may scale depending on the exact work required.
