White Fillings

White Fillings


White fillings are increasingly popular for patients, especially on back teeth as an alternative to the traditional silver amalgam. Recent advances in the technology of white filling materials, composites and porcelains, have made their performance comparable or superior to that of traditional silver amalgam fillings.


What are tooth-coloured fillings made of?

This can vary, but they are mainly made of glass particles, synthetic resin and a setting ingredient and are commonly known as composites.


Are white fillings as good as silver amalgam fillings?

White fillings have always been considered less long-lasting than silver amalgam fillings. But there are now new materials available that are comparable to silver amalgam, and these are proving to be very successful. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite. Your dentist can advise you on how long your fillings should last.


Are white fillings expensive?

They usually depend on the size and type of white filling used and the time it takes to complete the treatment. At DCO, Private white fillings start at £75.
