Frequently asked questions
Can I whiten front fillings?
Bleaching only affects natural tissues. Fillings, crowns, veneers do not change color rendering, shade or tone during the process and so the only way to whiten fillings on front teeth is to replace them with new whiter ones.
How do I remove black fillings?
The protocol for changing black fillings consists of removal with strong suction, isolation and the use of high speeds and suction.
What can I do about black filling that I am not satisfied with?
Today, a variety of color options are available for teeth and fillings can be replaced with white resin composites with equally good properties and excellent aesthetics.
Do white fillings wear out easily or are they replaced more often?
This is not true. Modern white composites are wear-resistant and highly stable in color in the long run. As with any other filling, success factors are accurate placement and construction. So composite fillings are now considered the best choice for teeth except in very specific cases.
