White fillings (also known as composite fillings) can be placed in the front or back teeth to improve the appearance of your teeth. White fillings are matched to the colour of your own natural teeth.
They are used to improve the appearance of your teeth by fillings cavities, replacing existing metal fillings and changing the shape of your own teeth.
The use of white filling helps to preserve your own tooth tissue to help you to keep your teeth for longer.
What are white fillings made of?
White fillings are composed of powdered glass, silica or other ceramic particles added to a resin base. They also contain compounds which set when cured with a dental curing light.
Why choose white fillings instead of metal (amalgam) fillings?
Tooth coloured fillings match the colour of your own natural teeth and can be shaped precisely so they will not be noticed when you are talking, laughing or taking a photo, helping you feel more confident

White fillings are more natural looking as they match the colour of your own teeth. Using white filling material helps to preserve as much tooth tissue as possible. White fillings have good longevity when placed by highly skilled clinicans; this is because white filling materials are more technique sensitive.
White fillings (also known as composite fillings) are composed of glass, or ceramic particles added to a synthetic resin base. They also contain a setting ingredient which sets when cured with a dental curing light.
White fillings are more aesthetic and can be shaped precisely so they will not be noticed when you are talking, laughing or taking a photo, helping you feel more confident. Metal fillings are stronger and can withstand more load than white filling. But the latest white filling materials are proven to have good success. White fillings are bonded (adhered) to the tooth. Therefore, less tooth tissue is removed for white fillings, in comparison with metal fillings.
Cost for white filling can vary. It depends on the size and location of the cavity (hole), type of white filling and the time needed to place the filling. Our dentist will be able to give you a quote before you commit to treatment.
