White Tooth Fillings by Oakley Dental In Prestwich, Manchester
Most people in Manchester will need a filling at some point in their life- there are very few people lucky enough to avoid the need completely. Until recently, amalgam (or silver coloured) fillings have traditionally been used but today in the pursuit of a more natural look, composite white fillings are becoming more and more popular.

Once considered less durable and hard-wearing than their amalgam alternative, white fillings are now available in a number of alternative materials which are comparable to amalgam. The life expectancy of your white filling will depend on its location, the depth of the cavity and the strength and location of your bite. Your Dentist will be able to give you more advice regarding this.
