White Fillings

Beautiful white fillings are used to fill cavities and strengthen teeth at our state-of-the-art dental surgery in Lewisham. Not only do white fillings restore damaged and decayed teeth, but they also seal the area off from further infection. We provide high-quality white fillings made of composite resin, porcelain, or ceramic to restore your smile.

What are the benefits of white fillings?

  • You can smile without worrying about your fillings showing
  • Quick and minimally-invasive procedure
  • Preserves tooth structure - only a small amount of healthy tooth is removed
  • They set quickly so can use your teeth right away
  • Your teeth are restored and strengthened

Can I replace my metal fillings with white ones?

In most cases, it’s safer to remove metal fillings only when they need replacing. You may, however, be able to benefit from alternative restorations (such as, crowns or inlays) that are made to match the shade of your teeth. Your private dentist in Lewisham will discuss your options with you at your consultation.

What does the procedure involve?

You will meet with your cosmetic dentist in Lewisham to discuss and plan your treatment. You will be given a full dental examination to ensure your suitability for white fillings.

Your fillings will be placed with a drill under local anaesthetic at our comfortable dental clinic in Lewisham. Alternately, air abrasion may be used which keeps the teeth free from moisture during the procedure.

The teeth will be cleaned, and all the decay will be removed. Next, your dentist will insert the filling material into the cavities. A bright light will be used to set the material. Once the procedure has finished, you can use your teeth as usual right away.

Are white fillings long lasting?

Yes. White fillings last just as long as metal ones. The more pressure they undergo, the quicker they will wear out and need replacing. Your friendly dentist in Lewisham will inform you on how long you can expect your white fillings to last.

How much do they cost?

The price of white fillings can vary depending on the size and material used. We will give you details on the cost of your treatment at your consultation at our dental practice in Lewisham.
