Natural looking tooth-coloured fillings, or ‘white’ fillings, are also known as ‘composite’ fillings and are made from very strong material that can be shaped to the exact requirements of the tooth. This material is set using a special light source that cures the filling material. Tooth coloured fillings are now the most common cosmetic dental procedure.
They are an ideal cosmetic replacement for old black or silver amalgam fillings. At Beach Road we are happy to replace failing silver fillings for tooth coloured restorations,. We do have concerns about removing healthy sound fillings from any tooth as the more times a filling is removed and replaced the more chance of damaging the tooth and creating other problems. Tooth coloured filling materials have undergone years of research and development in both composition and technique. We use the latest techniques and materials to offer you the best result in comfort, care and quality with great natural looking results.
Dental composite fillings can be used for filling new cavities, replacing metal or amalgam fillings, repairing chipped teeth and also can help to block gaps between teeth.
