White Fillings are the most basic restorative dental treatment
If you have broken, cracked or decayed teeth, a white (composite) filling is the best way to return your teeth to their natural shape and colour. Where previously amalgam fillings were used, white fillings are now used as they provide a much nicer aesthetic finish for you, our patient, and they also require for less of your healthy tooth structure to be removed.
Our white composite fillings are carefully matched to the shade and colour of your natural teeth, meaning that they blend into your smile. The way we apply them also means that no healthy tooth structure needs to be removed, and that there is no space for decay to form underneath the filling.
How do I care for my white (composite) filling?
White (composite) fillings are long-lasting, but still require you to maintain optimal dental hygiene. Along with your regular brushing and flossing routine, we recommend booking regular check-ups with Elite Dental Adelaide every 6 months to ensure we can help you to maintain your healthy, happy smile.
What is the process for a white (composite) filling?
White (composite) fillings are a simple process, and can usually be completed in just one appointment at Elite Dental Adelaide.
Firstly we clean around the tooth (or teeth) that need to be treated, and we clean the decay out of the tooth. The composite material of the filling is then placed onto the area, and an ultra-violet light is used to harden the material.
At the end of the appointment, you will be left smiling with a natural-looking tooth that is decay-free, and long-lasting.
