Why should I consider white fillings?
Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths. 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.
Are white fillings expensive?
Costs can vary usually depending on the size and type of white filling used and the time it takes to complete the treatment. We will always give you an estimate of the cost before you agree to treatment.
Is it worth replacing my amalgam fillings with white ones?
We usually advise it is best to change fillings only when your old filling needs replacing. If so, you can ask to have it replaced in a tooth-coloured material.
What are tooth-coloured fillings made of?
This can vary, but they are usually made of glass particles, synthetic resin and a setting ingredient. However there are also so more modern ceramic materials that are available, when you come into My Dental Care we will be able to give you more information about the particular material that is most suitable for you.
