White Fillings

A white filling or tooth-coloured filling acts to protect teeth that have been damaged, e.g. by decay, and to prevent further damage from occurring to the tooth enamel. It has the added benefit of blending into your smile, so it’s barely noticeable.

Fillings are a common dental treatment, so much so that it is thought most adults will have at least one filling in their lifetime. In addition, white fillings maintain your dental appearance and keep your teeth looking as natural as possible.

At Bank Cottage Dental Practice, we offer fillings to strengthen weakened teeth. Although most patients choose tooth-coloured fillings these days, this is on the dentists’ advice as it is not always suitable.

Why are fillings necessary?

A build-up of plaque and bacteria in the mouth can result in tiny holes (or cavities) forming in the outer layer of the tooth. These cavities need to be cleaned to remove the decay and bacteria, before being ‘filled’ or restored to prevent further damage to the tooth and to stop new bacteria from travelling into the soft tissue within a tooth.

To help prevent cavities, we recommend maintaining a regular and thorough daily home care routine to remove plaque and bacteria and to keep your teeth clean.

When you visit us for a check-up, we examine your teeth and take x-rays to help us determine whether you need a filling.

Benefits of tooth-coloured fillings

  • Look natural and are virtually undetectable
  • Preserve and maintain function of your natural teeth
  • Prevent future damage to your teeth
  • Long lasting and strong
  • Can be colour matched to your natural teeth
