White Tooth Fillings Camden

White or tooth-coloured fillings are made from dental composite to repair chipped and broken teeth. They can be shaded to match original tooth colour and provide a natural and healthier alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings. They enable a minimal invasive restoration, which means your natural tooth can be saved.

These types of fillings can be used either in the front or at the back of mouth. They provide a natural look to restore the function and strength of damaged teeth. Our dentist may build up chipped or cracked teeth with white filings to repair the tooth. It can also be used for reshaping uneven teeth, closing the gaps between teeth and filling mouth cavities that have occurred due to tooth decay.

Benefits of white fillings

  • These fillings look natural when compared to metallic or amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings may blacken overtime and are very visible in the mouth. White fillings match your teeth colour and give you a natural look.
  • White fillings do not contain mercury like the metallic ones. Some people believe that the mercury contained in amalgam fillings can be a risk to health.
  • These fillings strengthen the tooth. Certain layers of silicon dioxide can be filled with glass as well to stabilise your tooth.
  • Silicon dioxide will not conduct hot and cold temperature as metallic fillings do. You will not suffer from tooth sensitivity after treatment.
  • These types of fillings harden quickly and usually require just a matter of hours harden.

Composite fillings are applied using the following process:

  • Preparing the tooth – Fillings can be used on decayed teeth and will usually be placed in a single appointment. Your dentist will begin the procedure by removing decay and the cavity formed will be filled by various dental filling materials. Old metallic fillings or silver fillings can be replaced with composite ones to improve cosmetic appearance.
  • Apply bonding – If you have an irregular shaped tooth, then a composite filling can be bonded onto to the tooth, giving it the desired shape.
  • Place dental composite – If you have a broken or chipped filling, dental composite fillings can be used to repair the tooth, restoring it to its shade making it functional and cosmetically appealing.
  • Proper restoration – If you have gaps in between your teeth, a composite filling may be used to close these gaps. If the decay is near the nerve of the tooth, then proper medication will be given for protection.
  • Final shaping – The filling material can be molded into a veneer shape. Composite filling will be placed, polished and shaped, restoring the tooth to its original shape and function. This is an inexpensive and quick option to using porcelain veneers for smile makeover.

FAQs

If you have minor tooth decay or want to replace your metallic filling, then white fillings will be an ideal treatment for you.

Fillings are used to fill in cavities that develop at the outer surface of the tooth. It is important to fill those holes to protect the tooth from further injury and lessen the risk of bacterial infection that can spread to others parts of the tooth. Once enamel is weakened, the risk of tooth decay is increased and a filling will help to keep your tooth healthy.

Most insurance plans provide coverage for the least expensive fillings. However, it will depend on the insurance provider whether they cover either a part or the entire payment for white fillings. Your dentist will be able to help advise you in this regard.

With proper care, white fillings usually last for 5-10 years before they need to be replaced,

Your tooth will remain sensitive to heat and cold for around 2 days after the treatment. Any pain will be mild and you will be able to resume your normal activities within three days.

I have been registered at this dental practice now, for just over 15 years. Throughout that whole period, I have been lucky enough to have been looked after by the wonderful, and patient, Dr Prasad. He has covered many procedures in my mouth, from extraction, and root canal, right up to the most recent procedure, Composite bonding of my broken two front teeth. Do not hesitate to register at this practise, as you will be looked after with care and consideration.

Thank you Dr Prasao

Very friendly

During the lockdown period I was able to see Dr Irfan for a dental emergency I had. I’m so grateful that they have been available throughout this. Gillian the practice manager contacted me and offered me an appointment the same day. I am a long standing patient at this practice and cannot thank them enough for great service they have provided to me throughout the years. Great dentist, staff and management. Thank you all so much.

Susan L.

The Dental Care Center has been an excellent dentist surgery that I have been attending as a patient for many years. When I was young I didn’t have a pleasant experience with my local dentist on more than one occasion. I found the dentist at Camden dental care center very reassuring and comforting. The management and reception were also very welcoming.

Stewart S.

Really efficient service and friendly helpful staff, clean and fresh environment

Stephanie P.

Great desk staff and Dentists. Excellent with young children.

Spencer M.

Brilliant service from Dr Mansi Patel – she ensured I was well informed regarding my dental issues and spent a whole consultation discussing my dental history and reviewing my previous scans. She provided the means to communicate out of hours, if I had any further queries. She demonstrated empathy and encouraged collaborative decision making throughout. This is a refreshing approach, speaking from someone who’s a healthcare professional. Would recommend!

Sonia M.

I had a wonderful experience at Camden High Street Dental Practice. Dr Mani Nasir is fantastic, he listened to me, had my best interests at heart and delivered excellent and professional care. Dr Mani & his nurse Kawtar are an amazing team! I also felt very safe with the measures the practice has put in place in light of covid-19. Thank you!
