Cosmetic Dentistry » Amalgam Filling Replacements
Many people will need fillings at some point in their life. Traditional amalgam fillings are a metallic grey/silver colour and can be very noticeable, particularly in teeth near the front of the mouth. This can make you feel embarrassed about showing your teeth when you smile.
At 61 Dental, we can help restore the confidence in your smile by replacing old, worn amalgam fillings with tooth-coloured "white" fillings. They are one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available.
White fillings are far less noticeable than traditional silver fillings, although the name is a bit of a misnomer, as the material for the fillings is matched closely to the natural colour of your teeth, so comes in a variety of white shades.
In the past, white fillings were considered less strong than metal fillings, but modern advances in dental technology mean that white fillings are now as strong as silver amalgam fillings. Our dental team are happy to discuss how suitable white fillings are for you, and how to take care of them.
White fillings are made from a hybrid material of glass or ceramic materials and plastic resin, which is matched to the colour of your own teeth.
The cost of white fillings will vary depending on where they are in your mouth, as well as the size and shape. White fillings are an excellent way to regain confidence in your smile. Speak to one of our dental team today if you think white fillings may be right for you.Back to Treatments
