Amalgam Replacement Fillings


Help me to

Amalgam Replacement fillings are great for if you have one or more silver fillings that you just don’t like the look of anymore. White fillings are available as a first option or replacement for existing amalgam fillings.

What is a white filling?

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.

Why would I want a white filling?

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.

What are the benefits of a white filling?

  • A highly durable material which bonds to your teeth.
  • The colour blends in more naturally with your teeth, minimising the impact on your smile.
