Here at Vevay Dental Centre we specialise in replacing old metal fillings with white fillings. A Filling is one of the most basic methods of restoring teeth. It allows us to fill a hole in a tooth that has been caused by decay, playing an important role in helping us to keep a tooth for many more years.
At The Vevay Dental Clinic, we use the most modern, effective, tooth-coloured materials. Unlike the grey amalgam fillings, as the these are tooth coloured fillings no one will be able to tell you have them in you mouth. We use the most gentle and comfortable anaesthetic techniques, as well as the strongest and most effective anaesthetics. We always make sure that throughout every visit with us you can be completely comfortable from start to finish. Once we have removed the decay, the tooth will be filled. For tooth coloured fillings, the material is then placed into the open hole in layers, with a special blue led light being shone on each layer to speed up the setting process.
We will then file and shape the filling, so that it looks realistic and does not interfere with the way your teeth meet when you bite and chew this is known as correcting or adjusting the bite. Once that is done it will then feel smooth comfortable immediately. White fillings are only suitable where there is enough tooth structure left to support them.
