Enhance Your Smile: White Fillings at The Molesey Dental Practice

Say Goodbye to Metal

Advances in modern dentistry mean that patients no longer need to put up with unsightly ‘black/silver’ amalgam fillings. The latest white filling materials are as strong as traditional materials and look great. In fact, you might struggle to tell the difference! If you want to improve the appearance of you smile and replace any old fillings why not contact us?

What Are White Fillings?

White fillings, also known as composite or tooth-coloured fillings, are dental restorations used to repair teeth affected by decay or damage. Unlike traditional silver amalgam fillings, white fillings are made from a composite resin material that closely matches the natural colour of your teeth. This not only restores the tooth’s strength and function but also provides a more aesthetically pleasing result. White fillings are a popular choice for those seeking a discreet and natural-looking solution for cavities or minor tooth imperfections.

Who Can Benefit from White Fillings?

White fillings are beneficial for individuals of all ages who require dental restorations due to cavities, minor tooth damage, or cosmetic concerns. Here are specific groups who can benefit:

  1. Aesthetically Conscious Individuals: Those who prefer a natural appearance, as white fillings blend seamlessly with the tooth colour.
  2. Children and Teens: A suitable option for young individuals needing fillings, as they won’t have silver fillings affecting their smile.
  3. Anyone with Cavities: White fillings effectively treat cavities, providing a strong and durable restoration.
  4. Those with Minor Tooth Damage: Whether due to injury or wear, white fillings can repair minor tooth damage discreetly.
  5. Patients Allergic to Metals: Ideal for individuals allergic to traditional amalgam fillings.
  6. Cosmetic Dentistry Patients: White fillings contribute to cosmetic dental procedures, enhancing overall smile aesthetics.

The Advantages of White Fillings

White fillings, or composite fillings, offer several advantages:

  1. Aesthetic Appeal: Blend seamlessly with natural tooth colour, providing a more discreet and attractive appearance.
  2. Tooth Preservation: Requires less removal of healthy tooth structure compared to amalgam fillings.
  3. Versatility: Suitable for front and back teeth, addressing a variety of dental restoration needs.
  4. Adhesive Bonding: Bonds directly to the tooth, promoting stability and supporting overall tooth strength.
  5. Reduced Sensitivity: Causes less sensitivity to temperature changes than traditional metal fillings.
  6. Mercury-Free: Unlike amalgam fillings, white fillings do not contain mercury, addressing concerns about potential health risks.
  7. Immediate Use: No waiting for the filling to harden completely; patients can resume normal activities right away.
  8. Repairable: Can be easily repaired or modified if needed.

I cannot praise Dr Crowley and the team at Molesey Dental practise enough. One year ago I was in trouble with my teeth. A mix of age and embarrassment. I finally came to the point where I had no choice but to attend. I booked my appointment and to say I received complete professionalism is a understatement. I could write many lines of praise, but will keep it simple. Please don't hesitate!!! Make an appointment, be honest and you will not be judged whatsoever. The painless processes that are applied is certainly life changing. Huge thankyou to all the team at MDP. Thankyou. I finally smile with complete confidence once again!!!!

Excellent dental practice! My dentist is Dr Crowley who is absolutely brilliant. As an emergency, I booked an appointment with Dr Sharma who went above & beyond to ensure I trusted her and was comfortable with a different dentist. She did a fantastic and efficient job replacing my filling.The reception is also very friendly and professional. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

After years of not seeing a dentist due to criticisms, critiques and bad relationships with all the ones I've had prior I was sceptical going in but knew that my dental health would one day catch up to me. So I went just before I went off to university. my dentist was Dr Puneet Nagpal who was very kind and considerate after learning I haven't been for a checkup for quite some time and he went through everything very thoroughly but was gentle with the tools and his words, he wasn't condescending or patronising or putting any blame on me. He told me that I needed to have half a dozen or so fillings filled and I told him about my deadline as I was off to university by the end of the month and he was able to book me in the following week for 2 rounds of fillings. We also had other talks about personal life and how much sugar and drinks can affect my teeth and he went out of his way to google and search for things that I would like and made some suggestions. During the fillings I had to excuse my self a couple of times due to an excess of water filling my mouth and having difficulty breathing, luckily he understood gave me time to compose myself and settle back in and I was able to wear some headphones to help distract myself from the noise of the drilling and from the pain. All 3 times I went to visit him he went above and beyond any dental experience I've had before and has made me care much more about my dental hygiene even more so and has made me feel comfortable with going back to the dentists as I would dread it before. Dr Nagpal has been one of if not the kindest person who has looked after me in any sort of medical visit I've so often needed in my life, I could not recommend him enough.

After 17years I went to dentist as I had not good previous experience, my heart was beating as little birdie before I went to see Dr Sharda Kaur Sharma for the fist time as I had a strong pain in my tooth. And she was able to healed all my past experience with her kindness, compassion, understanding and professional care, she took time to give me all information and explained every step and to make sure all will be comfortable for me. I am still thankful I met her and since then I am always looking forward to seeing her. I was also recommended to wonderful lady who doing all my dental hygiene and taking special care and patience to be my teeth free from all calculus, the change is visible and my heart is so thankful and happy, thank you for wonderful care.
