A white filling in Liverpool is made from a blend of a tooth-coloured plastic and specialised glass, used to restore and repair damaged teeth. They can be used to fill a cavity like a traditional silver filling would, but their flexibility and ability to blend in with your tooth colour means they can also be used to reshape disfigured teeth, repair damage, and even change the colour of a tooth.
At Saving Faces, our specialist dental team has been working with cosmetic dentistry, white fillings included, for their entire careers, and have performed thousands of successful installations. They are the premier providers of white fillings in Liverpool, which are also known as composite fillings, and they have been keeping the Northwest smiling for years! As experts in their fields, the installation of a white filling with us is a quick, simple way to fix teeth with may have become worn or are broken and the procedure comes with an absolute minimum of discomfort.
The first part of getting a white filling is preparing the tooth by making sure it is ready to receive the filling. This usually involves our dentists carefully cleaning and performing the precision drilling of a cavity area to make sure the filling will sit securely and not break away from the remaining healthy tooth.
The composite mixture is prepared and colour-matched to your teeth to ensure a seamless, invisible fit to your tooth. This is great for keeping a natural healthy appearance to your smile. The composite can then be applied, one layer at a time, by our professional dental team, who hardens each layer quickly using a specially-developed light which toughens the filling without generating any heat or discomfort for the patient.
Once the filling is securely in place, the dentist shapes it to the contours of your teeth to ensure a perfect, smooth look. They then seal and polish the composite to prevent staining or early wear-and-tear. Aesthetically your tooth should then look whole and like a real, natural tooth.
Unlike the traditional application of fillings, which takes two or more appointments, receiving a white filling is only a one appointment procedure. With white fillings at Saving Faces, you only need one visit to walk out smiling.
White fillings are superior to traditional silver fillings in a few ways. The first and foremost of which is that they blend into your teeth flawlessly to make your tooth look unblemished like it was before any damage occurred. Our dentists blend the composite mixture carefully for each patient, making sure that it will match their tooth colour perfectly before application.
Once applied, the composites serve to reinforce the remaining tooth, strengthening it against damage and future wear and tear, therefore keeping it comfortable and healthy. The filling is bonded directly to the healthy tooth, reinforcing it, and responds to heat and cold the same way your tooth does, keeping it strong no matter what you throw at it.
