A white filling is a combination of glass and tooth-coloured materials used to restore decayed teeth in patients.
They provide an array of benefits compared to their almost-redundant black metal amalgam counterparts. Essentially, white fillings require less tooth structure to be removed when an individual tooth is being prepared, thereby being the safer option.
Secondly, white fillings are practical, strong and last longer. They also provide dentists with a better opportunity to meticulously colour match a filling restoration thanks to the natural translucency of porcelain and resins.
