White fillings

Are you embarrassed of your metal fillings that make your teeth look black when you smile? There is now a simple solution that can improve the appearance of your teeth by having your fillings replaced with white composite material. 

This is a safe procedure that entails a visit to the dentist where any decay from your tooth will be removed, taking out the metal or amalgam filling and placing a tooth coloured filling inside it instead. The new filling is made from a very hard substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time. This will allow you to smile without a metallic shine, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.

Prevention is always better than cure and factors such as a balanced diet and good daily oral health regime should be followed to avoid tooth decay from occurring in the first place. If you do have a tooth that needs a filling, a white filling offers an attractive solution that is also functional and will allow you to bite and chew as before.
