What are white fillings?
White fillings are a minimally invasive restorative treatment. There are different materials used for fillings, all of which are pliable and fill in a part of a tooth that has lost its structure due to damage caused by tooth decay. Our dentists can offer this treatment, giving you a better-looking smile.
By filling in a tooth to make it whole again, we can restore your bite and reduce the risk of further dental problems. We believe that this treatment will help boost your overall dental hygiene.
Why are white fillings used?
Commonly, white fillings Stevenage are used to restore lost strength and structure to a tooth or set of teeth following cavity treatment. This is done by removing the decayed tooth structure. Whilst this restores dental health, it may leave your teeth vulnerable to future decay. Therefore, if you are experiencing a toothache, we recommend that you see our dental team immediately as this is a sign of tooth decay.
Why are white fillings popular?
White fillings Stevenage have risen in popularity as it is known to blend in well with the surrounding natural teeth. Therefore, a tooth filling will not stick out like a sore thumb, and no one will be able to notice that you have one. At Smilecraft, our professionals are highly skilled at applying white fillings.
What are some advantages of white fillings?
The first benefit to having fillings is the lower risk of sensitivity. Composite resin, which is what white fillings Stevenage are made of, does not transfer heat quickly and it is this quality that can help you avoid unpleasant sensations when consuming anything hot or cold whilst also insulating your teeth from temperature variations. Moreover, the fillings are biocompatible; they do not contain any harmful chemicals and, therefore, are not harmful to the body in any way.
The next benefit is the stability of the fillings as they do not expand or contract as temperature varies. Therefore, they are less prone to falling out.
The final advantage is that these fillings are aesthetically pleasing. They can be shaped to blend in with the surrounding teeth and matched to the lustre of the teeth. We can even polish the fillings to mimic the reflective quality of natural teeth.
We, at Smilecraft, believe that such advantages make white fillings an amazing restorative treatment option.
Is it difficult to maintain these fillings?
Caring for these fillings is quite easy. All you need to do is brush and floss regularly, and as long as you maintain this properly, the fillings will last you a few years.
