At Shawlands Dental Care, we offer tooth-coloured composite or white fillings, allowing our patients to maintain a seamless, natural-looking smile after a cavity.

A composite filling can also be used to restore a broken tooth.

What are white fillings made of?

Composite filling material is made of a blend of powdered glass and acrylic resin.

How is a white filling placed?

Following preparation, the composite material is placed in layers, using a special light to harden each layer. Then the filling is shaped to fit the tooth before being polished.

What are the benefits of white fillings?

The benefits of white fillings go beyond cosmetic. They provide significant strength to the restoration. Dentists don’t need to remove as much tooth structure before placing a white filling which means we can preserve more of your natural tooth.

How long will a filling last?

If cared for properly, a white filling can last for 7-10 years before it needs to be replaced.

This practice is honestly hands down the best I've ever been to. The staff are so friendly, warm and welcoming and the practice is very modern and clean. I hadn't been for years and am extremely phobic of the dentist…

Got my implant tooth fitted here by Dr Ahmed and Lauren. Only in my 30’s and felt self conscious about having to take my front tooth out! Once I even lost it and had to walk around with my mouth…
