Your smile can be improved with a simple restoration using White coat.
White coat is a temporary whitening treatment, applying a white composite plastic bonding, which is hardened by a special light, on the tooth’s surface to conceal discoloration. It is more suitable for a small area than a large area.
What are the advantages of White coat?
Simple and painless
The White coat procedure usually requires only one visit. It is painless and causes no damage to the tooth surface.
White coat uses a safe composite resin material found in tooth fillings.
It suits those who need an immediate result for wedding and other important occasions.
The procedure is relatively inexpensive (3,000 yen per tooth). You can readily try to see how white fillings would look like.
What are the disadvantages of White coat?
Short life span
Because White coat is used to apply on only the surface, it wears quicker than other fillings. Its life span varies depending on the case, but it usually lasts about a month.
Not for all teeth
White coat cannot be used for a tooth touching another tooth in order to avoid an occlusion change.

The metal filling became invisible. A few weeks after the treatment the bonding started to come out. The metal was later replaced with a ceramic filling.
