Why Choose White Fillings?

White fillings ( composites) are the main treatment for repairing and preventing further damage to a decayed or broken tooth.

They replicate the natural shape and appearance of a tooth.

They also help restore the function of a tooth. However, dental crowns may have to be used if the damage to the tooth is very bad.

They require far less tooth removal than traditional metal fillings and look far better.

 At 3Dental we dont use metal fillings. We only provide white fillings.

How It's Done

The process of adding a white filling to a tooth is almost identical to any other filling undertaken:

Firstly, the dentist will take an x-ray of your decayed tooth and then decide the best form of treatment based on the results.

You will then be given a local anaesthetic and no treatment will be undertaken until it has taken away all sensitivity from the tooth.

After Anaesthetic

Once the area is numb, the dentist will use a small drill to remove the damaged areas of the tooth, creating a small hole free from decay.

The tooth is then prepared using a mild acid and dental cement to help secure the white filling, which is then added and hardened in stages using a bright light.

When the final layer of white filling composite is added the surface will be sculpted to fit in with the surrounding teeth, ensuring a level and even bite.

More About White Fillings

Our dentists use tooth coloured filling material as standard and will pick the filling material to match the colour of your teeth so fillings cannot be seen.

White fillings are a good way to repair cavities and cracks whilst also being a similar colour which helps them to blend in and improve the cosmetic appearance of your teeth.

How They Are Made

How They Are Made

They are made from a composite of materials that is safe, effective, and hard to break. Previously, many dentists used amalgam filling material to restore teeth.

These fillings were black/silver in colour and proved to be quite unsightly. It is commonplace to replace these old fillings with more aesthetically pleasing white/tooth coloured restorations.

Commonly Asked Questions

Will you be able to see my filling?

No. White fillings are matched to the shade of your teeth and will not be detected when you smile

Will it hurt?

The dentist will give you local anesthetic so you will be completely numb for the treatment.

Can I eat after my filling?

The white filling material is complete set when you leave the clinic, however you may be numb for up to 4 hours. It is best to avoid eating until then as you may bite your tongue/cheeks or burn your mouth with hot food or drinks.

Will I be in pain after?

No, you should not be in pain after a filling. Your dentist will advise you if it has been a deep filling, you may experience some sensitivity while the tooth settles.
