A white filling is a tooth-coloured material used to restore decayed teeth.
Also known as a composite filling, white fillings are much favoured over the black metal amalgam fillings previously used in the treatment of cavities. As they allow more of the original tooth structure to be saved during tooth preparation for a filling, the original tooth structure remains stronger and the filling itself smaller.
Another great benefit of white fillings is the comparable colour match to your natural teeth, thanks to the translucency of resin material used.
