Fillings

Fillings at Plymouth Dental

Here at Plymouth Dental Centre of Excellence we provide our patients with white fillings, as we understand the importance of feeling comfortable in your smile and maintaining discreetness with dental fillings. 

What Are White Fillings?

White fillings are made up of tooth-coloured resin and glass mixture to maintain the appearance of natural teeth – they are used to restore decaying or broken teeth.

Why Choose White Fillings?

From an aesthetic perspective, white fillings are less obvious; due to the colour of the composite as it mimics the appearance of your natural tooth. White fillings are also used as opposed to amalgam (silver) fillings, as the amalgam fillings contain mercury and don’t have the same visual benefits as white fillings do.

What Does the Treatment Involve?

In order to place a filling on the relevant area, the existing filling is removed (if necessary), as well as any plaque, tartar and decay. The treatment site is then cleaned and dried; so that the filling can be placed. 

In order for the filling to bond to the area, the tooth surface is etched and coated with gel and bonding solution. The composite is then placed into the cavity and moulded to match the shape of the natural tooth.

Finally, the filling is hardened using a curing light; then trimmed and polished to provide an aesthetically pleasing finish – which is almost unrecognisable.

What's the Cost?

With everyone’s case being unique to the patient, it’s often difficult to provide an accurate cost of a treatment plan without a prior consultation. During this, your dentist will explore all of the options available to you, including finance options to spread the cost of your treatment into manageable monthly instalments.
