What are white fillings?

White fillings, more commonly known as composite fillings, are used to restore a decayed tooth and allow it to function as usual. They take on the appearance of your tooth in order to blend well and work by plugging in any holes in the teeth caused by the cavity. Bonding strongly to your teeth, this is a highly compatible material that is minimally invasive and allows us to preserve more of your natural tooth. Composite fillings are usually recommended for dental restorations towards the front of your mouth.

Do you need a white filling?

How do you know if you have a cavity? This is a tricky question. Severe tooth decay might create a hole in the outer layer of your enamel or, at times, a cavity might cause pain and sensitivity but in most cases you won’t be able to figure it out until you go for a checkup. A visit to your dentist every 6 months will help you understand your dental health better and intercept tooth decay early.

The Process

The area of decay is removed and prepped for the filling
An adhesive is applied and several layers of the composite material
Once the filling has been fully applied, it is cured for less than a minute with a special light
Once cured, the tooth will be polished
Enjoy a restored, healthy tooth!

Other types of fillings available

White fillings are not always ideal for larger cavities. There are several other types of fillings available depending on the severity of decay and its location. Here are other fillings we offer at Wyndham Dental:

  • Amalgam Fillings- Also known as silver fillings, this is a strong and durable material that is often used for restorations towards the back of the mouth since they’re darker in color and also highly resistant to wear and tear.
  • Glass Ionomer Fillings- These can be made to match your natural tooth colour and can easily bond with the tooth. They’re not as resistant to wearing out so they aren’t recommended for teeth that take on heavier functioning but they do release fluoride over time to combat decay around the filling.
  • Inlays & Onlays- Inlays and onlays cover a larger area than fillings but aren’t as intrusive as a dental crown. Inlays are molded into the chewing area of your mouth whereas onlays cover the entire cusp of your tooth for damage control.

After-care for a white filling

It takes a very short time to recover from fillings. With the right maintenance, you can spring back in no time. To make sure your fillings last as long possible, you need to:

  • Avoid hot/cold meals right after the procedure
  • Brush and floss daily
  • Minimize sugary foods
  • Use a toothbrush with soft bristles
  • Apply a fluoride gel for multiple fillings
  • Use alcohol-free mouthwash

How long do fillings last?

This depends largely on how well you maintain your fillings. With regular maintenance and checkups, your fillings can last between 5 to 7 years!
