White Fillings Glen Waverley

White fillings also called tooth-coloured fillings are used to repair a tooth that has been affected by decay, cracks or fractures.

There are different types of filling materials available nowadays, but the most common of all are composite and silver amalgam.

If you want the dental filling to match the colour of your teeth, composite fillings are the best option.

Composite fillings are the most widely used type of filling material. Because of its colour, they can be closely matched to the colour of natural teeth.

In addition, white fillings are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or in other visible areas. With the finest filling material and proper care at home, your dental fillings can last for many years. 

Composite Fillings

The composite material, which is made of glass particles suspended in a resin matrix, is obtainable in many different shades to perfectly match your tooth. Composite fillings are bonded directly to your tooth, helping to support the remaining structure of the tooth. White fillings are ideal for correcting minor aesthetic flaws and can be completed in one appointment.

Dental Filling Procedure

If your tooth has suffered from decay or cracks, white fillings might be used for this problem. Your dentist will first examine your tooth and determine if white filling is the right treatment for you. In most cases, fillings are used for teeth that have been weakened by decay.

Once a tooth starts to rot, your dentist will need to remove the decayed portion. This will be followed by an application of bonding agent to the affected tooth. The filling is then placed and moulded to your tooth structure. Using a special UV light, the material is hardened for about a minute.

After the treatment, the tooth is reinforced again. The final outcome reveals a tooth with a natural size, shape and colour. The white filling allows the treated tooth to blend in with the rest of the teeth in your mouth. 

Benefits of White Fillings

Here are the other benefits of white tooth fillings:

  • Great for closing gaps and fixing worn teeth

  • Restoration is possible for making a broken tooth new again

  • Long-lasting results helps you maintain a beautiful smile for years

  • Allow you to save on dental expenses as fillings are often covered by dental insurance plans

Had a wisdom tooth extracted by Dr Lydia Tseng a month ago. Was extremely nervous but she was so very kind and gentle, I dare say I was pleasantly surprised with the entire procedure. All thanks to this super patient dentist. Thank you so much. I might actually be nearly happy about my next visit 🤞🏼😆

Our family have already attended the EK dental surgery with Dr. Lydia for a couple of years. Dr. Lydia is our best choice after compared with other dentists, especially on children’s dental care. She is very patient and very professional on children’s noncooperation. She explained the treatment clearly and given us good advice. She is always gentle when checked teeth. She used a lot of strategies to help my son for relaxing and be comfortable while filling a tooth. My son was very resistant to see dentist because he had a bad experience in another clinics before, but Dr. Lydia was very patient and given my son a lot encouragement. I highly recommended Dr. Lydia
