White Fillings Northampton at ICE

White filling treatment for brighter smiles in Northampton

White fillings are tooth-coloured restorations which are used at Ice Dental Spa in Northampton to strengthen teeth that have small or medium-sized cavities. Cavities are holes that form in the teeth as a result of decay and, if left untreated, can lead to other dental health problems and even tooth loss. White fillings are made from strong composite material, which is made of resin and tiny particles of glass.

What are the advantages of white fillings?

White filings do the same job as amalgam fillings but are much more aesthetically pleasing. White fillings are designed to blend in with your natural teeth and the filling will be completely invisible when you smile. They work to match the natural colour of your teeth perfectly and are as strong and durable as metal fillings. Some people are also concerned about the effect of amalgam fillings on the environment and composite fillings are a much more environmentally friendly option.

What does the procedure involve?

The procedure to fit a white filling is simple and quick. The cavity is cleaned thoroughly and the decayed tissue removed before the filling material is then poured into the hole. An intensive beam of light is used to harden the material and the filling is then shaped and trimmed to fit the hole perfectly. If you suffer from dental anxiety we can help make you feel more relaxed and comfortable before the procedure, so please do not hesitate to talk to your dentist about any of your concerns.

How long do white fillings last?

White fillings should last between 7 to 10 years, but this is dependent on the patient maintaining a good oral hygiene routine, which should include:

  • Regular trips to the dentist
  • Brushing twice a day (for a minimum of 2 minutes each time)
  • Flossing (to target areas that are hard to reach with a brush)
  • Using mouthwash
