Metal amalgam fillings have been around since the early 1800s. They are durable and effective, but many people consider them to be unsightly. In the past 40 years, advances in dental technology have allowed clients to choose tooth-coloured fillings as a more cosmetically appealing option.
First, we’ll examine your smile and discuss which treatment options suit you and your teeth.
Next, we’ll place your tooth-coloured filling to create a modern restoration.
Finally, we’ll advise you on how to care for your new filling for the future.
At Stella Dental, we offer all three types of white filling – porcelain, composite, and glass ionomer. Glass ionomer fillers are only used as a temporary measure before a full filling is applied, or beneath one of the other fillings for added structure.
Ceramic fillings are made of stain-resistant porcelain, which retains its colour for longer than composites. Ceramic fillings are lab-made and longer lasting than composite fillings, but also more expensive as a result. Composites are a great choice if you want to conceal the fact you have a filling as they are designed to exactly match the colour of your natural teeth. Ceramic fillings require more than one dental appointment, whereas a composite filling can be placed in a single day.
The most durable of the two options is ceramic fillings, lasting 10 – 15 years. Composite fillings last for around 5 years.
When tooth-coloured fillings were first invented they had a reputation for being fragile. Still, over the past 40 years, significant advancements in dental technology mean that modern white fillings can be just as strong as metal fillings.
