Enhance the appearance of your smile at Lavant Dental
Unhappy With A Mouth Full Of Metal?
Amalgam tooth fillings have been used by dentists across the globe for many years because they are renowned for their strength and durability. Amalgam fillings are silver in colour as they contain a mix of liquid mercury and alloy. These mercury fillings are generally unsightly as they can be seen easily when a person laughs or smiles.
Composite dental fillings
A composite tooth filling (white filling or tooth coloured filling) is available in many shades which can match the natural colour of your teeth. The material used is a resin mix which is bonded to the fractured tooth just like an amalgam filling. It’s just as strong, affordable and can last for many years. Sometimes it is not practical to place white fillings in back teeth, but there is no need to worry - our dentists can advise you on how to proceed. You may require other treatment options, such as dental crowns.
Do you have a chipped tooth?
The same composite resin material used in tooth coloured fillings can also help to repair and build up a chipped tooth. This will help to strengthen the tooth as well as enhance the shape and appearance of the tooth.
What should I do next?
Our dentists would be more than happy to carry out a dental check-up and assess your old silver fillings. If you would like to enhance your smile or if you are experiencing toothache, please contact a member of our team at Lavant Dental and book an appointment with Murray, Kate or Paul today. Call Jilly or Nikki on 01730 265666 or fill in the form on this page and we will call you back during surgery opening hours
Once your trays have been made, your dentist will invite you back to the dental practice where you will be asked to try on your new whitening trays. They should fit you perfectly and then your dentist will demonstrate to you how the home Lavant Dental Tooth Whitening kit works. You will be given full instructions including how long to wear them and what to do if your teeth and gums feel sensitive.
Your dentist may ask to see you after a period of time to assess whether the desired look has been achieved.
The results of teeth whitening
The effects of tooth whitening can last several years but it is dependent on what you eat, drink and whether you smoke as well. The bleaching solution will not cause damage to your tooth enamel but tooth whitening should only be carried out under the supervision of a fully trained and registered dentist.
