White Fillings

Why Should I Consider White Fillings?

Most people have fillings of one sort or another in their mouths. Developments in dentistry mean that modern fillings can now be functional and natural looking, as opposed to the traditional silver amalgam fillings which are more visibly noticeable when smiling or laughing. White fillings have always been considered less long lasting than silver fillings; however there are now new materials that are almost as good as silver amalgam, and these are proving to be very successful. At Kincorth Dental we use the highest quality minerals to ensure that our fillings are the very best on the market.


Because white fillings are commonly classed as a ‘cosmetic’ treatment, these will need to be done privately and costs will vary depending on the dentist, size and type of white filling used, and the time it takes to carry out the treatment. At Kincorth Dental Practice our dentists will always ensure they educate you about how long your fillings should last, how much they should cost and answer any questions you may have about our dental procedures before you agree to progress with the treatment.

Amalgam fillings in the lower jaw can often be seen when we talk or laugh. But amalgam fillings can also sometimes be seen in the upper jaw. These can be unsightly and can also discolour the tooth. Composite (White) fillings are available to improve this.
