White fillings are the natural choice.

Tooth-coloured fillings that are designed to match the colour of your teeth are called composites. Composite white filling can be matched to the colour of your surrounding tooth.

Some people find they experience less post-treatment discomfort and sensitivity when using white composite fillings. In the past, white fillings were considered to be less durable than amalgam ones, modern materials have made them much more hard-wearing. However, the depth of the cavity and where it is in the mouth will have a bearing on how long this type of filling lasts.

Looking after your white filling

You can help prevent further tooth decay by brushing at least twice a day and cleaning between your teeth with dental floss and interdental brushes. In addition, you should also attend regular check-ups and hygiene appointments, so we can detect early signs of decay and monitor your oral health.
