“I found Dr Jandoo to be so professional and informative about the treatment I was going to receive. I mentioned in my first visit that I’m a jazz fan and low and behold, I walked in for the second appointment and there was jazz playing the background.”
How White Dental Fillings Work
Fillings replace parts of your teeth that have been lost because of decay or accidental damage.
White fillings are an attractive solution as they are practically invisible and are completed in a single appointment.
We will normally carry out fillings under local anaesthetic, during which time the affected area is cleared of decay, washed and dried and a bonding agent applied.
A resin filled with glass particles is placed on top of the bond (glue) in thin layers, each layer hardened with a near UV light, and polished to make it feel like a natural tooth.
Frequently asked questions
Why would I need a filling?
Why are white fillings better than mercury amalgam fillings?
White fillings are very discreet and it’s very hard to detect them. In contrast, metal fillings are much more noticeable and they can detract from the beauty of the smile. There are concerns about health and safety issues with mercury fillings and although they are approved for use in Scotland at the moment, amalgam has been banned for use in Children and is being phased out for adults across Europe.
