White fillings provide protection and strength to teeth that have been damaged by decay. They blend into your natural teeth and are invisible to others.
Made from ceramic or porcelain, white fillings give you the treatment you need without affecting your dental appearance or function.
They are applied directly to the affected tooth, sealing the hole or cavity that has formed due to the acid within plaque and restores your teeth back to health.
Why do you need a filling?
Poor oral hygiene and a lack of adequate brushing and flossing can lead to cavities or small holes forming in the dental enamel. This is because plaque sits on the teeth and the acid within it can eat away at dental enamel causing tiny holes to form.
If these holes or cavities deepen, your teeth and gums are made vulnerable to infection, further damage to the teeth and a general deterioration in your oral health. Avoid fillings by practising a daily and through home care routine and by attending Fitzroy Dental Practice for hygiene appointments.
