Do you do silver/amalgam fillings?
At Zen Dental Studio, we use the latest products and materials to restore teeth and do not use amalgam or silver mercury filling materials. Amalgam fillings were very useful in their time, but they cause problems such as weakening teeth causing cracks, potential mercury toxicity and being aesthetically unappealing.
What are the advantages of white filling?
- Different shades can be blended to create a colour that is nearly identical to your own tooth colour, hence making white fillings an ideal choice for front and back teeth.
- Less Drilling is required compared to other types of fillings.
- Composite fillings bond to your existing tooth and can reinforce teeth.
- They harden quickly and you can eat immediately after treatment.
- Composite fillings can fix chipped and cracked teeth.
- Composite fillings are easily repairable.
How are white fillings done?
At Zen Dental Studio, we perform several additional steps in the placement of every white filling. This meticulous approach includes placing fillings under rubber dam isolation to give the best outcome as well as checking for any remaining decay with a special dye, cleansing the cavity with air abrasion as well as a disinfectant, applying a special desensitizer before filling the tooth as well as using the best materials and equipment in addition to normal steps performed by most dentists.
How long do I have to wait to eat after the composite fillings are done?
White fillings set immediately with the help of a special light. Thus, you can eat immediately after the filling is done. You will have to be careful in case you have received local anaesthetic.
