White Fillings – Kilkenny

With significant advances in dental materials many fillings are now completed with white composite restorations. Composite restorations can be used to repair worn or fractured front teeth by matching the tooth tissue colour to various white filling materials.

Why should I consider white fillings?

White fillings are very natural looking, as well as doing the job they’re meant to do. While they have traditionally been considered less long lasting than silver amalgam fillings, advances in materials now mean that white fillings are virtually as durable as silver amalgam.

Is it worth replacing my amalgam fillings with white ones?

It is generally best to change fillings only when your dentist decides that an old filling needs replacing. When this happens you can ask to have it replaced with a tooth-coloured filling.

Amalgam (Silver) Fillings

On occasion it is more clinically beneficial to restore teeth with amalgam (silver) fillings. Amalgam is a very durable filling material and is appropriate in cases where the filling will not be visible or where there is significant restoration to be done.

Our dentists will be happy to discuss all of your options with you and provide a written quote before any treatment is carried out.
