If you have or suspect you may have a cavity and are looking to treat it, you may want to consider composite (white) fillings. Made of composite resin – a tooth-coloured material that can be matched to the shade of your teeth – this material is a popular choice for patients who want to fix small chips or cracks in their teeth without using amalgam (silver) fillings.
What are composite fillings made from and which teeth can they be used on?
Here’s everything you need to know about white fillings:
Composite resins are made of a mixture of plastic and fine glass particles. The material can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth, making it a popular choice for people who want their fillings to be less noticeable. They also bond to your tooth, which helps to support the remaining tooth structure and prevent further damage, and the material is quick and easy to place.
Composite fillings are ideal for small to medium-sized cavities. The material can also be used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, as well as to fill in gaps between teeth. They may not be the best choice for large cavities, as they tend to not last as long as amalgam (silver) fillings.
If you are considering composite fillings, it’s important to talk to your dentist about whether or not they are the right choice for you.
How should white fillings be cared for?
To care for your white fillings, you should:
· -Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
· -Floss once a day.
· -Visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
