In the past, the most common form of filling was the silver amalgam variety.
This has never exactly been the discreet and natural look patients are looking for, especially if you choose to have teeth whitening treatment in the future! We’re pleased to say that our patients in Manchester now have the option of replacing their silver fillings with white fillings that blend right in with your existing tooth shade. We can also match your white filling to your newly whitened teeth if you’ve chosen teeth whitening treatment to reverse discolouration.
It’s true that in the 21st century, modern-day general dentistry is as much about aesthetics as it is about fixing a dental problem, and understandably that’s important. The good news is that white fillings fit right into this ethos. Aside from aesthetics, however, they also have many other significant benefits too.
Makes for a stronger tooth
A white filling is bonded directly to a tooth, making the finished combination much stronger. What’s more, less of your natural tooth structure needs to be removed, making them a preservative type of restorative dental treatment.
Less receptive to temperature
Amalgam (silver) fillings can weaken when they’re exposed to extremes of temperature as they expand and contract. Conversely, white fillings tend to be less receptive to temperature changes, making them a better option – not just as a filling but for overall teeth whitening in Manchester too.
If you’re considering banishing your unsightly silver fillings to complete your overall teeth-whitening Manchester look, then why not speak to our highly skilled team, who can help? For further information, contact Cheadle Hulme Dental and Cosmetics at 0161 486 0743 today.
