Fillings in Drighlington

Most people have fillings of one sort or another but today, because we are much more conscious of our smile, we can choose a natural looking alternative – the composite or tooth-coloured filling.

Our Drighlington dentists at Whitehall Dental Care will be happy to discuss your needs in our comfortable, well-equipped clinic. 

Fillings Whitehall Dental

What are fillings made of?

There are a variety of materials we can use to fit your needs – the composite or tooth-coloured filling. Fillings can help prevent further tooth decay and can restore the function and structure of a tooth

Alongside composite and tooth-coloured fillings, in some children's fillings we use glass Ionomer Cement (GIC) fillings, a newer style of temporary filling that releases fluoride over time to help prevent further tooth decay.

Do fillings hurt?

We want our patients to feel comfortable and relaxed. We use an anaesthetic to numb the gums and the surrounding area of the affected tooth before we begin the filling procedure.

We can stop at any time if you experience any discomfort. However, our patients often find the experience with our dentists painless.

Will my filling feel different?

After your filling, we will shape your tooth so that it fits your natural bite structure. You may notice a slight difference in the area in the surface of the tooth in the first few days after the filling, but you should soon grow used to it.

What are White Fillings?

Composite/white fillings are the most popular choice when it comes to filling colours. They match the colour of your teeth more naturally, and they provide additional support to the tooth with their chemical bonding properties. They can also be used to reshape your teeth.

White fillings are made of a composite of ceramic and plastic, and they are mercury-free.
