Cosmetic White Fillings At Perfect Smile Spa

Exceptional Cosmetic Dentistry And Tooth Restoration In Essex

Perfect Smile Spa is proud to offer modern and effective tooth restoration solutions in a clean, professional and local environment.
White tooth fillings are one of the treatments we offer that combines tooth restoration and cosmetic dentistry. We use high quality, tooth coloured material to successfully seal cavities to prevent the tooth losing more strength, and to stop the spread of infection and further decay.

Metal fillings have always been the first choice in filling cavities because the amalgam material is durable, long-lasting and cost-effective. Now, a more aesthetically conscious public means that white fillings are just as popular, if not more popular. They offer the same protection as silver fillings, but with the addition of blending the tooth in with the natural teeth, hiding the work that has been done, and maintaining the beauty of the smile.

Signs You Might Require A High Quality Filling

There are lots of reasons that you may need a dental filling at our professional clinic in Essex and understandably we can only determine the correct course of treatment following a free consultation at Perfect Smile Spa. The most common reason for needing a dental filling is dental decay.

Tooth decay occurs when the enamel and other outer parts of the tooth are degraded and softened by the acid made by nasty bacteria in the mouth consuming sugars you eat. Eventually, the acid will rot the tooth and make a hole, which is the cavity. This decay damages the structure of the tooth and has to be removed and filled to protect the rest of the tooth. If the decay is left to continue and spread, the tooth will not survive.

Often the first stage of decay is plaque building up on the tooth. This plaque build-up, if it is not effectively treated, will lead to dental decay. Regular check-ups with your Essex dentist, along with good daily oral hygiene and support from Perfect Smile Spa dental hygienist services, can help to prevent plaque build-up and the formation of tartar.

Our Essex clinic works hard to prevent any dental issues from occurring in the first place, saving you time and money on dental treatment long-term. However, should decay occur, we do have treatments like white fillings to help prevent further issues and to maintain the strength and aesthetics of the remaining tooth.

Common signs and symptoms you might have a cavity are:

  • Sensitivity of the tooth or surrounding gums
  • The tooth may feel rough in parts
  • You may struggle to brush all parts of the tooth
  • The tooth may look grey or black
  • You may get toothache

Early Treatment Is Key!

If the cavity is allowed to progress you may find that you end up needing root canal treatment, or you may even develop a painful dental abscess. Further development of the cavity is likely to cause more pain and a need for more detailed treatment that costs more money and time.

Which Type Of Cavity Treatment Do You Need?

If the decay is relatively mild we can remove it and provide you with a white filling. However, if the middle of the tooth is infected in some way we may need to do root canal treatment. This is where we need to remove the infected tissue from the middle of the tooth, clean the area and then replace it with special clinical cement. It may be that white filling material is used to form part of the reconstruction of the tooth but in some instances a crown is more suitable.

Replacing Amalgam Fillings With White Fillings

You may already have fillings that are made from amalgam (silver filling material) and you want them replaced for cosmetic reasons. They may naturally need replacing and perhaps you are considering a white filling as a more aesthetically pleasing alternative.

We can replace your silver fillings with a white filling material although in most cases, we try to avoid disturbing a successful filling that is in place. We can discuss each option with you when you visit us for your free consultation.

Why Choose A White Filling?

Amalgam fillings are considered perfectly safe and the way they look isn't intrusive enough to cause issues for some people. Amalgam fillings also cost less. However, there are two major advantages to white fillings.

Primarily, we can remove less tooth structure to allow for the white filling material to be placed. That means more natural tooth is conserved. Of course, the filling also blends in much better with the surrounding teeth without drawing attention to the work that has been done. This is a preferable look for many people who want to maintain their beautiful smile.
