White fillings in London

Why should I consider white fillings?

The majority of people have some kind of fillings or the other in their mouth. These days, fillings are not just practical, but can appear very real also. Several people have no desire for silver fillings because they become visible when they smile or laugh and they are extremely mindful of their appearance.

Are white fillings as good as silver amalgam fillings?

Since long, white fillings have been regarded as being less durable than the silver amalgam fillings. However, today, the latest materials with properties on par with silver amalgam are available, and these are demonstrating to be extremely effective. The white fillings’ life span can hinge a great deal on where exactly is it located in the mouth and when you chew, how strongly your teeth clamp down.

Is it worth replacing my amalgam fillings with white ones?

Well, generally it is a good idea to replace fillings only if your Baker Street dentist determines that your old filling has to be substituted. If that is the case, you can ask for a replacement that is of a tooth-shaded material.


Quite a few dentists choose not to fix white fillings in the back teeth since they are not effective on most occasions. A suitable way out would be to make use of inlays or crowns, but this denotes taking out more of your tooth and besides it can be very costly.
