What are WHITE FILLINGS?

Most people have some fillings in their teeth many of which are likely to be black fillings or silver amalgam fillings to give them their proper name.

White fillings have improved significantly over the last few years and they are now more robust and reliable than ever before. Most people don’t want silver fillings that show up when they laugh or smile because it makes them self-conscious about the way they look. Because of this white fillings have become increasingly popular. At Finesse Cosmetic Dentists we carry out numerous treatments for white fillings and the difference they can make to your appearance, especially if you need several fillings, is amazing. With white fillings you can barely tell any work has been done and from an aesthetic viewpoint, they are a major improvement.

WHY WHITE FILLINGS?

When you have a white filling only a small amount of your tooth is actually removed before the white filling is applied to it. This means that there is less chance of the tooth chipping or fracturing.

Unlike silver amalgam fillings, white fillings chemically bond to your tooth structure, giving it additional support. White fillings are also kinder to the soft tissue in your gums than silver or gold amalgams. We don’t generally advise that you should replace your old silver fillings for cosmetic reasons. If they need replacing however, white fillings are a popular choice.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • WHAT IS INVISALIGN®?

    Invisalign is a virtually invisible way to align and straighten the teeth. Using advanced 3D computer aided technology, your complete projected treatment plan can be visualised before starting your treatment, so you can see the end result before beginning. Following this, a complete series of clear aligners can be made bespoke to your teeth and mouth moving them over a short period of time

    Each clear aligner must be worn for between one to two weeks before being replaced by the next aligner in the course of treatment, gradually moving towards the projected final planned position. The length of treatment time depends on the number of aligners and will be discussed specifically with your Invisalign dentist.

  • HOW DOES INVISALIGN WORK?

    Invisalign clear aligners move the teeth through a series of careful and controlled planned movements. Each aligner will move certain teeth in a particular pre-set sequence which will move the teeth accordingly over the course of treatment.

  • WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF INVISALIGN?

    Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and hardly noticeable when worn.

    As the aligners are removable, you can also eat and drink whatever you wish during the course of Invisalign by removing the aligners before a meal, which is not the case with fixed braces which may result in dietary restrictions.

    Oral hygiene can be easier to manage as the aligners needs to be removed when brushing and flossing.

    Brackets and wires are not used with Invisalign and as a result there is less appointments required to change these components compared to Invisalign which can reduce the amount of time taken off work to see the dentist to make these adjustments.

  • IS THIS A NEW WAY TO STRAIGHTEN TEETH?

    Invisalign is a system which has been used for many years. but the technology has advanced and evolved to be able to treat a wider range of more challenging and complex tooth movements. The software enables you to see the treatment plan from the beginning of treatment until the end which gives you the confidence that your expectations will be met.

  • HOW MUCH DOES INVISALIGN COST?

    The cost of invisalign can vary depending on the time taken and the extent of teeth movement required. Typically it can range from £2500 – £4000. However, if only minor movements of teeth are required, it can be less.
