White Fillings in Lara

A dental filling is a treatment for teeth that are damaged by decay, known as cavities. They help restore the tooth back to its normal function and shape while preventing further decay. They are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).

At our Lara practice we offer white dental fillings, which are durable and offer natural looking results.

What is a white filling:

There are different types of materials available for dental fillings, including silver and porcelain. White fillings, also known as tooth coloured fillings or composite fillings are made from composite resin and are known as white fillings because of its white colour that is used to match the colour of your teeth.

FAQs

  1. Aesthetically pleasing — the shade/colour of the composite can be closely matched to the colour of your teeth, making it a natural looking solution 
  2. Versatile — in addition to its use as a filling material, composite fillings can also be used to repair chipped, cracked or broken teeth.  
  3. Requires minimal tooth preparation  
  4. Bonds to tooth structure — composite fillings chemically bond to tooth structure, providing further support to the tooth
Getting a dental filling is normally painless. While you may feel some discomfort, we’ll administer a local anaesthetic which will numb the area. You may experience some discomfort and sensitivity after the procedure, this will go away and can be managed with pain relief medication.
