What Are White Fillings?

White fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are used to restore teeth affected by decay, cracks, fractures, and other issues. Unlike traditional amalgam (silver) fillings, white fillings are made from composite resin, a mixture of plastic and fine glass particles, which can be closely matched to the color of your existing teeth.

Benefits of White Fillings

White fillings offer several advantages over traditional metal fillings:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: White fillings are carefully matched to the color of your teeth, providing a more natural appearance than silver amalgam fillings.
  • Durability: Composite resins bond directly to the tooth, providing support and resisting fractures in small to mid-sized restorations.
  • Tooth Preservation: Less tooth structure needs to be removed compared with amalgam fillings, helping to preserve more of your natural tooth.
  • Safety: White fillings are mercury-free, avoiding concerns associated with mercury used in amalgam fillings.
  • Versatility: Besides being used for cavities, white fillings can also repair chipped, broken, or worn teeth.

The Process of Getting White Fillings

The procedure for placing white fillings is simple, efficient, and completed in a single visit:

  1. Preparation: The tooth is numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure comfort during the procedure.
  2. Decay Removal: Any decay and weakened tooth structure are carefully removed.
  3. Tooth Cleaning: The tooth is thoroughly cleaned to remove bacteria and debris before the filling is placed.
  4. Filling Placement: The composite resin is applied in layers to the tooth. A specialized light is used to harden each layer.
  5. Shaping and Polishing: After the composite has hardened, the filling is shaped to match the contours of your tooth and polished to restore your tooth’s natural appearance and function.
