Tooth coloured fillings restore and strengthen teeth that have become damaged or decayed
Tooth coloured fillings will be indistinguishable from your natural teeth, ensuring no-one will even know they are there. Tooth coloured fillings used to be considered less long lasting than traditional amalgam fillings. However, due to recent advances in materials, tooth coloured fillings can now be used to repair most teeth.
Tooth coloured fillings are made from glass particles, synthetic resin and a setting ingredient and have the advantage of blending seamlessly with your natural teeth so you will not need to feel self-conscious when you talk, laugh or smile.
White fillings are not visible when you laugh and smile – White fillings can be colour matched to your natural teeth colour.
White fillings are not damaging to teeth – a white filling requires very little of the tooth structure to be removed, preserving as much as possible of your healthy tooth. The fillings also bond directly with the tooth, strengthen and protecting.
White fillings are not affected by hot and cold – white fillings are not affected by temperature change and can therefore help to protect your tooth from fracture.
