White fillings can restore your smile to its natural appearance, which is why they are the preferred solution at Infinity Dental Care Winston Hills for treating new cavities or replacing existing amalgam fillings.
High quality tooth coloured materials are more biocompatible than amalgam fillings, require less preparation and minimise the amount of natural tooth that needs to be removed.
White fillings can be made from porcelain or a special composite resin. They are colour matched to your tooth enamel, making them indistinguishable from your surrounding teeth so you can speak and laugh with confidence without having to worry about unsightly and grey fillings.
The procedure for a porcelain filling is similar to that of a crown. Your tooth is prepared and a detailed impression mould is made and used as a template to craft your filling in our on-site dental laboratory.
Once it is assessed for fit and comfort your new filling is held securely in place with a specially formulated bonding agent, restoring your tooth’s strength and natural appearance.
Porcelain and composite fillings are extremely strong and unlike amalgam metal fillings do not contract and expand with heat and cold. This minimizes the possibility of tooth sensitivity and fracture of the restoration.
The composite material used at Infinity Dental Care Winston Hills resembles a tooth coloured paste, which is colour-matched to your natural tooth enamel. The composite material is placed on the tooth in layers and hardened by a special plasma light. Your restoration is then carefully sculpted to the shape of the tooth.
A composite restoration is ideal for correcting small blemishes and can be completed in a single appointment.
