Composite white tooth filling – The durability factor
For a very long time, amalgam silver fillings were the only form of tooth restorations that lasted any length of time. Nowadays, that has all changed. Composite white mercury-free fillings are far more durable than they once were. As a result, our highly skilled team of dentists in Gordon can place a white filling to fully restore teeth and create a flawless healthy smile without compromising on protection, functionality, and aesthetics.
White dental fillings in Gordon – Absolute Versatility
White composite resin tooth fillings are extremely versatile. While silver amalgam fillings have only a single use, to fill a cavity to restore a tooth, composite fillings have a number of uses. They include:
- Filling a cavity
- Providing protection for a tooth
- Replacements for old silver amalgam materials to create a seamless white smile, and…
- A variety of minor cosmetic dental corrections, including altering tooth shape/length or restoring slightly chipped or cracked teeth.
Whatever your reasons for undergoing a white filling procedure you should know that our experienced dentists here at Gordon Family Dental are masters at creating seamless smiles. They are highly skilled in utilising white composite materials in such a way that aids optimal functionality while creating a flawless aesthetic appearance.
Tooth fillings in Gordon –The procedure
In most cases, our Gordon dentist will gently administer local anaesthetic to the area that needs to be filled. This ensures better comfort for patients.
Once the area has been numbed, our dentist will place a rubberised dam around the problem tooth. Initially, composite filling material must be kept away from moisture which the rubber sheet helps to ensure.
Next, any decay contained within the tooth cavity is removed. The cavity is then flushed out, dried, and shaped; this enables it to accommodate the tooth filling material. The cavity is then filled and each layer is hardened before the next layer is applied.
Finally, the filling is shaped to your bite and polished to create a flawless finish. Typically, the procedure takes around 20 minutes. However, the exact length depends on the size of the cavity.
