Tooth Coloured Restoration – “White Fillings”
Most people will require a filling at some point in their lives even with a good oral hygiene routine.Thanks to advances in modern dental materials and techniques, dentists have more ways to create pleasing, natural-looking smiles. Dentists and patients today have several choices when it comes to selecting materials to repair missing, worn, damaged or decayed teeth.
White fillings, also known as composite restorations, have revolutionised restorative dentistry by providing a treatment option that can be colour-matched to your teeth. This provides a natural looking, more aesthetically pleasing restoration. Another key benefit of white fillings is that they are easy to mould. This allow us to customise your fillings to match your tooth colour, anatomy, and adjust it to feel comfortable in your bite.
Over time silver amalgam fillings can contract and expand with changes in temperature, causing your teeth to fracture. We can now easily replace your defective silver amalgam fillings with white fillings or a custom inlay. Also, unlike silver amalgam fillings, white fillings contain no mercury.
