What are White Fillings in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire?
If a tooth develops a cavity because of decay, it needs to be fixed by a filling to help restore it back to its usual function and to prevent further decay from occurring.
Patients from Market Rasen, Gainsborough, Sudbrooke, Fiskerton, Reepham, Cherry Willingham, Nettleham, Welton, Caistor, Keelby and Lincolnshire are choosing to get their teeth treated with white fillings because they are much more discreet than the traditional metal amalgam fillings.
White fillings are made from a composite material which can be colour-matched to the shade of your other teeth so that they are inconspicuous and don’t stand out in your mouth.
What is the process for White Fillings at Market Rasen, Lincolnshire?
At your initial consultation, we will examine your teeth and inspect the tooth that requires a filling. We will talk to you about the process for white fillings.
At your next appointment, we will numb the area containing the tooth which needs the white filling using a local anaesthetic.
Your dentist will then gently drill through the enamel on your tooth and remove any decay. Your tooth will be shaped to prepare for the white filling.
The composite white filling is then applied to your tooth and adhered to the enamel.
