White Fillings

Perhaps the first thing to say about white fillings is that they’re not really white.

To be precise, what we actually mean when we say “white fillings” is tooth-coloured fillings. And what that means for you, is a simple, safe, cost-effective treatment that gives you a brilliant smile.

What makes our fillings different?

The natural, tooth-coloured effect is achieved by using four different materials, each with a different opacity and transparency.

We build up layers of these materials in the same way that a painter would. This enables us to achieve the best colour match to the tooth that is being filled.

Your fillings become invisible, leaving you with a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

Questions About Fillings

Thanks to the continuing advances in Dental technology and techniques, the chances of a visit to the Dentist being painful are less than ever before! The team take the greatest amount of care to ensure that your journey through our appointment is as painless and comfortable as possible.
There is very little “recovery” time in the traditional sense, however you may well experience some sensitivity as a result of your treatment and in rare circumstances some discomfort. These should resolve quickly. If they do not then please call Hartley and we will help.
We would advise avoiding very hot or very cold drinks immediately after your filling is completed – mainly due to the anaesthetic! It is possible you might have an increase in temperature sensitivity after the filling so be aware of this. It is a normal side effect and should resolve quickly.
There are some simple, common sense things to follow, which will help lower the risk of sensitivity and minor pain after your filling(s) are completed. We advise that after your filling(s) are placed, you:

  1. Take Care When Eating, – the new filling should be fine but you will have some effects from the anaesthetic and you will be more prone to biting yourself! This can be very painful later on.
  2. Take a Break From The Sweet Stuff – sugary foods and soft drinks are the reason you have had to have a new filling. Just because the decay is gone does not mean you should revert to eating sweeter foods!
  3. Avoid Sticky Food – try and avoid chewy and sticky foods for the first 24 hours after the filling. Your bite may have changed slightly and you will need to get comfortable with the way everything fits together first.
Sometimes this will be the case, especially if you have had a local anaesthetic. Don’t worry though, this is only temporary and your speech will return to normal within a few hours!
This does depend slightly on the complexity of the fillings and how many are being done during each appointment. Generally, we allow 45 minutes to an hour for the appointment, but this may be more. We will keep you fully advised on what treatment we recommend for you and will always listen to any concerns you have to help put your mind at ease.

“I would highly recommend Hartley Dental, in fact, I was so impressed that I made appointments for my husband and our children. Thanks again for a great service.”
