White Fillings

    Procedure time

    30 mins - 1 hour

What is the treatment?

A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.

Now, with the availability of white fillings, fillings blend in with your natural tooth colour, so it’s hard to tell that your teeth have had any work done at all. There is no discolouration and the filling is here to stay. 

White or ‘composite’ fillings are moulded to the exact shape of your tooth and set using a blue light. The filling is lifelike and long-lasting, which makes them a top choice amongst patients.
