White fillings

White fillings
As well as providing an effective repair for tooth decay or damage, white (or composite) fillings offer a natural-looking alternative to more obvious amalgam ones, as they are made from a tooth-coloured resin which blends in with your teeth.

They support the structure of a damaged tooth, helping to prevent further breakage and sensitivity and can be placed on the front or back teeth.

What does the treatment involve?

  • The area to be treated is numbed with a local anaesthetic and the old filling and/or decayed area of tooth are removed.
  • The colour-matched shade of composite is applied in layers.
  • Each layer is hardened with a special bright light and the resin shaped to provide a functional restoration.

Composite fillings have a more aesthetic appeal than metal amalgam fillings. Composite fillings do not contain any of the metals, e.g mercury , that the metal fillings contain.

At Cox and Hitchcock we use the most up to date materials and, as such, modern composite fillings are very hard wearing and offer a great alternative to mercury amalgam fillings.

Please feel free to discuss with us you preferred choice of filling material.
