Even the most diligent dental patients can encounter problems with their teeth from time to time and we have the treatments to patch you up and ensure you are free from pain and infection. Fillings are a very common treatment used to treat tooth decay. We offer high quality, aesthetically pleasing white fillings to strengthen your teeth without impacting on the beauty of your smile.
What are white fillings?
White fillings are a popular modern alternative to silver amalgam fillings. White fillings are made from a mixture of dental composite, resins and glass ionmers and they are designed to make your teeth stronger and fill cavities without changing the aesthetic of your tooth. There are various shades of composite available and we do our best to match the filling to your natural tooth shade for a completely invisible finish.
If you have a cavity, this weakens the tooth and there is a risk that bacteria can spread through your tooth; fillings help to prevent this and strengthen your tooth.
Dr Paul Hooi is an experienced dentist and he uses his skill and creativity to create seamless aesthetics. Using dental composite, Dr Hooi restores the teeth, maintaining their natural beauty and ensuring that you don’t feel a thing.
Treatment is short and painless, as we use mild anaesthetic to numb the tooth prior to the procedure. Your dentist will clean the cavity thoroughly and removed decayed tissue, before the composite is poured into the hole and shaped. At this stage, bonding material will have been placed inside the cavity to enable the composite to stick firmly and the composite is in putty form. Dr Hooi will use his expertise to shape the composite before using a curing light to set it firm and making any final adjustments.
Silver amalgam fillings
White fillings have become very popular over the last few years thanks to their cosmetic benefits, but silver amalgam fillings remain a popular choice, especially for patients who have cavities in the molar teeth. We offer different types of filling to cater for patient’s individual needs.
