White Composite Fillings

There are many types of filling materials. White composite fillings and amalgam fillings are the most widely used. Amalgam is strong but tends to shrink overtime, and unlike white composite filling, it has a dark coloration due to the metallic components.

White composite fillings are the most aesthetically pleasing and safer filling materials. White fillings are a blend of glass and plastic which are biocompatible. A white filling comes in a variety of shades to help reassemble the natural teeth color. Fillings are used to repair cracks, fractures, and decayed teeth. Your dentist will remove the decayed or damaged portion of your teeth and then filled with this material carefully in order to reconstruct the original shape of the tooth. Gleneagle Dental uses only white composite fillings to give you the most natural and long lasting restoration.

White fillings are not permanent but can last up to ten years if they are taken care of properly.
