White fillings for a seamless smile

Dental fillings are one of the most common dental treatments and we carry out a lot of them at Carisbrook Dental. A popular alternative to amalgam or silver fillings, white fillings can be matched to the shade, translucency and even texture of your natural teeth.

  • Invisible and long-lasting
  • Keep your teeth strong and healthy

White fillings at a glance

White fillings are bonded to the teeth and are recommended for small to medium sized cavities.

They can also be used by your dentist to improve the appearance of teeth, for example fixing chips or grooves in a tooth's enamel, increasing the size of small teeth or closing gaps between teeth.

Old metal fillings are usually replaced by tooth-coloured composite for cosmetic reasons by dentists, or sometimes electively as patients do not like the idea of metal in their bodies.

What does the procedure involve?

The procedure to place a composite white filling requires several steps. The first of those is to anaesthetise the tooth with local anaesthetic. The tooth where the filling is going is thoroughly cleaned. Then the correct shade of filling is selected, the tooth is kept dry.

The filling is then applied and exposed to a special light which enables the material to harden and set.

The filling is then polished to give the desired shape and finish.

How do I know if I need a filling?

While the most obvious signs that you may need a filling can be a hole in the enamel of your tooth, there are other symptoms to look out for. These can include:

  • A throbbing pain
  • Sharp, shooting toothache
  • Sensitivity in your tooth
