White Fillings

Composite Fillings

Dr Dev Patel has extensive postgraduate training to ensure that he uses the latest evidence based, clinical techniques required to provide natural looking and long lasting white fillings. Dev has a special interest in white fillings and has published numerous articles in widely publicised dental literature, to share his techniques when placing white fillings.


The material used for white fillings is commonly known as composites, and as the name suggests it is formed of a few different constituents. Essentially, the composites are composed of a combination of glass and nano-particles embedded in a resin. There are a wide variety of different composite systems used by dentists worldwide, all have there advantages and disadvantages, but generally the modern dental composites have excellent aesthetics and are as strong as silver fillings.


White Fillings can be used to replace old silver amalgam fillings or treat decay. White fillings can to restore most cavities; although when more than half the tooth is affected a porcelain inlay/onlay may be better suited to restore the tooth. Have a look at some cases Dr Dev Patel has completed using White Fillings.


Apart from looking like natural teeth, white fillings are very strong and have the unique ability to bond to teeth. This means dentists can prepare teeth more conservatively to place the white fillings, rather than removing more tooth structure to place silver amalgam fillings.
