Also known as composite fillings, white fillings are aesthetic fillings made of tooth-coloured materials. Bonded to your teeth, these fillings help to improve the shape and size of a tooth, restore a broken tooth invisibly, or close spaces between the front teeth. White fillings are a great alternative to grey amalgam, since they’re strong, durable and closely match the colour of the tooth.
Over the years, there has been much advancement in modern dental techniques and materials. Both ceramic and white composite resin materials are now being widely used for white fillings.
Benefits of white fillings:
- Strong adhesive material properties
- Tooth like appearance
- Easy to sculpture and contour to the tooth’s surface
- Resistant to fracture
- Minimal removal of natural solid tooth structure
