At Appleton Park Dental we offer tooth-coloured or composite fillings. The biggest advantage of white fillings is aesthetic. They blend in with the natural colour of your teeth for a seamless and beautiful smile.
What are white fillings made of?
White fillings use a tooth-coloured mixture of acrylic resin and powdered glass.
How is a white filling applied?
Your dentist applies a local anaesthetic to the affected tooth, before removing the decay. Then they will place the white filling material in layers directly into the cavity, curing each layer before adding another.
After shaping it to match the rest of your tooth’s surface, the dentist will cure your filling with a special light and polish it to smooth any rough texture.
How long do white fillings last?
With regular brushing and flossing, white fillings should last at least 5 years.
Can I have my metal fillings replaced with white ones?
If a metal filling is coming to the end of its life, we can replace it with an aesthetically pleasing tooth-coloured filling.
If you are experiencing tooth sensitivity and suspect you may need a filling or another restorative procedure, call us on 01925 266 488.

The government announced that from Monday 8th of June, restrictions on Dental Practices seeing patients for face-to-face appointments will be lifted in England.
We are incredibly pleased to be able to see our patients again, and we are working very hard to ensure that the Practice is a safe and well-equipped environment for us to deliver the dental care needed.
However, we would like to make it clear that we are following a phased return during the following weeks;
This means we do not have an open-door policy, and we are not yet at the point at which routine appointments can be made.
As you can imagine, with every Dental Practice in the country gearing up to return, there is an immense strain on our PPE supply chain, and so we can only provide emergency dental care with a skeleton staff to begin with, whist we implement our new protocols and source the required PPE.
We will keep you updated on our progress and readiness to book Check-ups, Hygienist appointments and other appointments over the coming weeks.
Until then, we would kindly request that only those with a genuine dental emergency or pain ring the practice and leave a message briefly describing the problem.
A dentist will then assess and advice on the best course of action over a telephone call first.
If it is agreed that you need to attend the Practice, our Receptionists will explain in detail what to expect on arrival, and all our new protocols.
These emergency patients along with those who have been cancelled midway through treatment, are the ones who will be contacted as a priority. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
I hope you have been keeping well and I look forward to seeing you soon.
