White fillings can be done with porcelain or resin material. The colour matches your existing teeth so they blend in well with the affected tooth and the surrounding teeth. The CSD Team create aesthetically pleasing fillings that mimic natural teeth.
Resin white fillings (composite)
White fillings are made from a composite or resin material. This is a soft material that is moulded into the cavity and cured with a curing light, which hardens it.
Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracturing in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth and are a good choice for people who prefer a more natural look to their fillings.
Composite fillings have an average lifespan of 5 to 10 years. This is highly dependent on oral hygiene and care taken after the filling was placed.
Composite fillings have several advantages:
They are bonded to the tooth. This process ensures maximum retention and seals off the teeth on the margin where the filling is placed. The bonding techniques and materials have evolved incredibly in the past decade. The correct bonding process will result in a durable, natural looking filling with little to no post-operative sensitivity.
Ceramic or porcelain white fillings
Ceramic fillings are often called inlays or overlays. It is either fabricated by a dental laboratory or with CEREC cadcam. Ceramic fillings are made from a ceramic compound, and are almost as strong as natural teeth.Click Here to Read More about Cerec
