Tooth coloured (white) Fillings
In the past, decayed or broken teeth have always been filled with amalgam, a dental material that appears grey and unsightly. Nowadays, white resin composite fillings have become the most popular restorative materials. The most obvious advantage of a tooth coloured filling is that when done well, it blends in with your tooth enamel and does not stand out at all. We will choose a shade of white to match your teeth so no one can even notice them.
There are a number of different cosmetic choices to restore your teeth:
- Composite resin: this is our recommended material for small-medium sized cavities
- Porcelain inlay/onlay: These materials are best for large cavities due to their durability and strength
- Porcelain veneers: these are fantastic at rejuvenating discoloured and unsightly front teeth
- Porcelain crowns: a crown is needed when there is extreme tooth loss or damage.
