White Fillings at Riverside Dental Practice
Traditionally back teeth were filled by dental amalgam. This is an excellent material to fill teeth, but the main drawback is the unsightly silver or even black appearance. However, nowadays we can restore molars and premolars with white filling material, also known as composite.
The technological advancements in the manufacture of white fillings have reached the point where they are just as strong and durable as amalgam. Also white fillings don’t contain mercury, unlike amalgam which is a toxic substance. Most fillings we now do at Riverside Dental Practice are white.
Please don’t hesitate to ask us about white filling replacements. Please contact us on 01786 464 285 to discuss this further or make an appointment.
