Teeth fillings restore the function and appearance of affected teeth. Listed below are the main benefits of having white dental fillings.
White fillings match the colour of the natural teeth, making them almost invisible to the naked eye – unlike silver fillings that obviously look dark on the teeth.
No increased sensitivity to temperature changes
Unlike metal fillings that increase a tooth’s sensitivity to changes in temperature, white fillings will not affect the sensitivity of the treated tooth.
No allergic reactions
White fillings do not cause allergic reactions, and is a better option for people who may be allergic to metal (silver fillings).
Better insulating qualities
White fillings do not contract or expand with temperature changes, which can cause cracks in the long run.
Improved tooth strength
The white filling material bonds with the tooth, improving its strength.
