What types of white fillings are available?
A white composite filling is the most commonly used type of filling these days. They look very natural and bond to the remaining tooth tissue very well.
At Bushy Park Dental clinic we warm up our white composite fillings to 55 degrees which makes them much more flowable and results in less voids developing in the white filling which causes much less postoperative tooth sensitivity for the patient.
Porcelain or composite Inlays or Onlays are more appropriate for larger cavities and take two visits to complete, in comparison to white filling taking one visit.
