White fillings (Composite)
match your teeth colour, are durable and can be done in just one appointment. They are not only used for repairing cavities and closing gaps between teeth, but also used to improve the colour and shape of a tooth.
For large cavities that have destroyed much of the healthy tooth structure, but not extensive enough to require a crown, inlay and onlays are good conservative options. They can be made out of porcelain or gold, are strong and do not wear out easily.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it necessary to replace old metal fillings?
Routine replacement of old metal fillings is not necessary unless they are fractured, defective or have decay around it. This is so because each time a filling is replaced, there is a risk of sensitivity after the procedure. Please discuss with our dentist if you have any concerns.
How long can a tooth-coloured filling last?
Life span of a filling depends on size of cavity, your dietary habits, presence of grinding habits and your oral hygiene regime.
In general, they can last for more than 5 years. You can extend the life of your fillings by taking good care of your teeth
