About White Fillings

White fillings have become the popular choice for restoring damaged teeth. Silver amalgam used to be the material of choice for dental fillings, but this tooth restoration is not considered to be aesthetically pleasing since if can easily be seen when the mouth is opened. The silver amalgam material also poses health risks because of its mercury content.

At London Dental Studio in London – Victoria, we only use white fillings made with porcelain to ensure that your teeth restoration is completely safe for your health, and aesthetically appealing at the same time.

How Do the White Fillings Work?

White fillings are used to restore the function and normal appearance of a damaged tooth. The filling material, such as porcelain, is used to fill out the cavity left after tooth decay, so that the tooth can still be used normally and protected from further damage and/or infection. The filling is created to perfectly match the colour of the tooth so the smile still looks natural after the tooth is restored.

A dental inlay uses the same porcelain material and is used for restoring the affected biting surface of the affected tooth, when the cavity left is too big for a dental filling. A dental onlay, on the other hand, is used to repair the damaged cusps of the tooth. Both of these indirect restorations are used for minimal tooth restorations, when the damage can still be solved without using a dental crown.

The London Dental Studio uses CEREC technology to complete your white fillings, inlays, and onlays treatments in a faster way. This technology includes a milling machine that creates the restorations chairside, while you wait. There is no more need for the tooth restoration to be created in a separate laboratory, which could take weeks to be finished. You can restore your teeth with white fillings, an inlay, or an onlay in just one dental appointment using CEREC technology.

For a Natural Looking Smile at Close-quarters

  1. The affected tooth will be cleaned, and any remaining decayed or damaged parts will be removed prior to the treatment.
  2. Using an intraoral camera, images of your tooth and mouth area will be taken and sent to a computer to be processed. This eliminates the need for taking uncomfortable mouth impressions.
  3. The white filling will be created chairside using CEREC technology while you wait.
  4. Th white filling, or indirect restorations such as a dental inlay or onlay will be bonded to the tooth, giving you a restored smile in just one dental appointment.

Conditions that Can be Treated with White Fillings, Inlays, and Onlays

Fillings, inlays, and onlays are used to restore decayed or damaged teeth. If a filling is not enough to address the damage, an inlay is used to fill out the cavity and to protect the tooth. An onlay will be used if one or more tooth cusps are affected, but the damage can still be managed without the need for a dental crown to cover the entire tooth.
