More and more people in Glasgow prefer white fillings over traditional gold or silver fillings, this is because there is no way that anyone will notice them once they are in your mouth so they’re suitable for any tooth.
Typically white composite fillings were largely advanced in the 1990’s, with them being changed from a leaking, ineffective filling to something that is now very popular. These fillings are a highly effective way of filling cavities.
With white fillings there is only a small amount of your healthy tooth being removed before the filling is placed, this is beneficial as it means that there is less chance of any fracturing or chipping of the teeth and it also ensures that the structure of the tooth is a lot more naturally stronger.
We provide white fillings as one of our treatments at our dental practice in Glasgow. In the time that we’ve been open we’ve had hundreds of patients come to us for white fillings, with this treatment being one of the most commonly used treatments that we offer.
When you come to us for this treatment you can expect one of our highly experienced dentists to complete a full oral examination and take your dental history. There will be x-rays taken to ensure that having a white composite filling is the right thing for you.
The cost of white fillings will be discussed at this point and if you are happy to go ahead then we will arrange for you to come back for the treatment to be started.
