There are a lot of cosmetic trends going through dentistry in London SE1 right now all designed at giving you the most best, natural looking teeth possible and among all the options within the make-over, you will find white fillings. Sadly, the old, dull looking amalgam fillings, it seems, have had their day and have had to give way to the trendier upstarts. These fillings are generally made from resin, glass particles or composite porcelain but it is because they are white or can be made to fit in with the rest of your teeth colour-wise, they give the whole of the mouth a more natural look and feel. However, they do come with their faults, aside from looking beautiful, white fillings are a lot more fragile that amalgam ones and tend to need replacing more often. They are also pretty useless in areas of the mouth that suffer a lot of chewing forces and they tend to break a lot quicker, they also have the habit of falling out more often because they tend to shrink. But then that is not the essential ethics behind having them done; if you are going to have a make-over, then you go the whole way to look beautiful and that involves the fillings as well. If you have any questions about such fillings, you should consult your dentist beforehand.
