Most people with fillings, especially if provided through the NHS, have metal amalgam ones rather than the more natural looking, white coloured ones. However both are available through the NHS and white coloured fillings offer huge aesthetic benefits over the traditional ones.

At Manchester Dental Practice we want to preserve and enhance your smile. We have considerable experience of successfully applying white coloured fillings for a wide variety of, very satisfied, patients. If you need a filling, our white coloured fillings offer you the solution to restoring the natural brilliance of your smile.

What are White Fillings and who are they for?

White fillings are a popular alternative to traditional metallic fillings and equally effective. They are made from a plastic composite resin and can be applied anywhere in the mouth.

If you have been advised to have a filling for tooth decay, you can choose between a white filling over a metal one. This is preferable if you think you will feel uncomfortable having a filling on show when you laugh or smile.

If you have a badly damaged tooth, it may be advisable to have an “inlay” or “onlay” rather than a filling, particularly where the missing part of a tooth is reconstructed because the cavity is too big for a filling. These can be made on-site using cad/cerec technology while you wait.

What is the treatment?

When you visit Manchester Dental Practice, you can have the peace of mind of being in the capable hands of a highly professional and dedicated team. We are passionate about giving you a first-class experience with results to boost your confidence and the vitality of your smile. As with every treatment we offer, our award winning clinicians will carefully talk through your options to ensure you can make the best choices about looking and feeling good about your smile.

You can typically receive a white filling within a single appointment. The quick and easy steps to having a white filling are as follows. Firstly, our experienced dentists will carefully numb the area using local anaesthetic and they are specially trained to deliver this as comfortably as possible. The next step is to prepare the tooth often by removing any decay. Finally, the white filling is applied to bond according to the curve and shape of your teeth.
