White dental fillings used by our dentists have the ability to restore the surface of your tooth. At the same time, your tooth’s appearance and function are also restored, enabling you to eat and speak normally and comfortably. You will also able to keep your teeth clean with greater ease once the cavity is filled with composite material. Cracked, broken and worn teeth can also be repaired using white dental fillings.
The White Dental Fillings Process
Our dentist will first numb the region around your cavity using a special anesthetic injection. This will keep you comfortable while the decayed tissue is removed from your tooth and the remaining space is filled. Tooth-coloured composite fillings are used for this purpose.
White dental fillings are created using composite resin that is like putty. Your Ignite Dental dentist applies this resin in thin layers until he has restored your tooth to the right level, whilst making sure your bite and speech are unaffected by the process. White dental fillings are virtually undetectable in your mouth because they are shaped like your natural tooth and perfectly match your teeth’s lustre and colour.
After your white composite fillings are sculpted, they are cured using a specially designed UV light. Before you leave, your fillings are hardened and you are able to return to your normal routine right away.
Benefits of White Dental Fillings at Ignite Dental
Composite resin fillings, also known as white dental fillings, are considered safer than silver amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings contain mercury, but composite fillings do not. There are other benefits of white dental fillings, such as:
- Cosmetically more appealing than metal
- Require no special care
- Can be brushed and flossed like natural teeth
- Keep your teeth healthy
- Match your natural tooth colour and lustre
- Fracture resistant
- Can withstand moderate pressure from chewing
- Can be used on front or back teeth
- Great for filling cavities or other tooth repairs, like cracked teeth
Please bear in mind that white composite fillings may take a bit longer to apply than traditional metal fillings. This is due to the need to keep the tooth clean and dry during the filling process. Composite fillings will eventually need to be replaced. Your dentist can recommend a timeframe for the replacement of your composite fillings to ensure your teeth are well protected from future decay and damage.
