A White filling is a tooth-coloured plastic and glass combination that is placed over the cavity where the tooth has been decaying for restoration.
Another name for white fillings is ‘Composite Resin’ which is known and used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the colour of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
Our expert dentists at Greenlane Dental place the composite in layers and then we use a light which is specialized to reinforce each layer. Once complete, the dentist will outline it to fit your tooth, finishing off with polish to preventing early staining and wear and tear.
White fillings are far more popular in this generation than the conventional silver fillings as they provide a more aesthetically pleasing smile as well as a strong bond to the tooth which can prevent the tooth from breaking and insulates it from excessive temperature change.
