White fillings are routinely used not only to replace areas affected by tooth decay but also as a means to rebuild and reshape teeth.
Tooth decay can occur when oral bacteria feed on waste left around teeth and gums. Bacteria then leave waste material behind and this eats away at tooth structure eventuating in a hole or cavity.
In restorative dental treatment, this cavity is cleaned out and the space replaced with a filling material.
Tooth coloured filling materials are designed to bond to remaining healthy tooth structure and provide a durable, strong and aesthetically pleasing replacement for infected tooth structure.
Fillings can also be used to repair tooth structure lost from chipping and wear. For front teeth, we use a white filling material specifically designed for to look natural and blend with your neighbouring teeth. Our dentist have learned special techniques to layer filling material to best have your smile looking radiant and natural.
