Why should I consider “white” fillings?
Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths. Nowadays fillings can be natural looking. Many people are more conscious about the way they look, so they don’t want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile.
Are white fillings expensive?
Costs usually depend on the size and type of “white” filling used and the time it takes to complete the treatment. Costs may also vary from region to region, but our Dental Team will be able to give you an idea of the cost when you are in the chair.
Are white fillings as good as traditional silver amalgam fillings?
White fillings have always been considered less long-lasting than silver amalgam fillings. But there are now new materials available that are comparable to silver amalgam, and these are proving to be very successful. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.
