Tooth Coloured Fillings
Many years ago, when you had a filling, everyone would know about it as they would be able to see it.
Traditional fillings were silver and highly noticeable set against the white of the tooth. As a result, many people were dissatisfied with the results and have been looking for an acceptable alternative to these traditional fillings. Furthermore, many patients are not comfortable with the thought of having metal fillings in their mouth. Modern composite resin restorations can provide long-lasting results with an excellent cosmetic result.
What Are Tooth Coloured Fillings?
Tooth coloured fillings – also known as composite resin fillings – are made from a mixture of plastic and glass. They are white in colour although the colour can be altered to match the colour of your teeth.
Tooth coloured fillings work in exactly the same way as traditional fillings; they are used to restore teeth that have developed decay or have fractured. They can also used by cosmetic dentists to hide stains, chips or other small imperfections on teeth.
Tooth coloured fillings can cost more than other traditional fillings but many of our clients believe it is worth it not to have unsightly black or dark-coloured fillings spoiling their teeth.
They are strong, durable and robust and help to support to weakened teeth, as well as helping with sensitivity.
