How White Cosmetic Fillings Can Help You Overcome Dental Problems

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 03:24 PM

The majority of people will have at least one filling during the course of their lives. Fillings are used as a way of treating tooth decay and can also help to restore damaged teeth. While silver amalgam fillings are the most commonly used, white fillings are rapidly increasing in popularity. 

What Is A White Cosmetic Filling?
It is a special filling which is inserted into your tooth and it prevents the spread of decay or else it repairs existing damage. Not only does a white cosmetic filling look good, it has a practical purpose since it stops decay from spreading into the root where it would cause serious damage such as an abscess. A filling can also save the tooth because if the infection is bad enough, the tooth will need to be removed.

Why Choose White Cosmetic Fillings?
Unlike silver amalgam fillings, white cosmetic fillings allow you to retain a natural look which means you can smile with confidence. At one time, silver was still preferred because it lasted longer but new innovations in dentistry mean white cosmetic fillings can last for several years.  

White cosmetic fillings come in composite filling, porcelain inlay and glass ionomer form. Each of these materials have their own unique advantages and disadvantages and you will need to discuss things with your dentist. Once your dentist decides an old filling needs to be replaced, you should consider white cosmetic material rather than its silver amalgam counterpart for a cleaner look. 

If you need a filling but want to maintain your winning smile, get in touch with the dental experts at PMDC in Bangkok. With over 30 years of experience, we will be able to tell you if white cosmetic fillings are your best option or if you should stick with the more durable silver amalgam filling.
