Dental technology has made amazing advances in the past decade. It is now possible to get dental treatment that looks absolutely invisible. People are willing to pay more money to get their teeth repaired with materials that are indistinguishable from their other teeth. Dental fillings are a good example of this.
Many dentists use silver or metal amalgam in order to fill cavities in teeth. These amalgams certainly do a very good job by protecting the cleaned cavity from further decay, but they are very visible as black or silver areas when the person opens their mouth. Having a row of filled teeth can be a constraint for certain people and they might not laugh out loud because they don’t feel comfortable opening their mouth wide.
A Leeds dental practice specializes in offering white dental fillings that make the tooth look almost exactly like the other ones in the mouth. These fillings are made of acrylic and porcelain and they give the filled teeth a very beautiful and lifelike effect. These fillings do cost more money than the ordinary amalgam ones, but people ask for them because they look very attractive. The other advantage is that the dentist has to drill less of the tooth when white dental fillings are being used.
Teeth at the back of the mouth can get amalgam fillings because they tend to be stronger. However, if the tooth that requires a filling is near the front of your mouth, then white fillings are an easy choice.
