What are tooth coloured fillings?
These are cosmetic fillings made from a synthetic resin, and offer an excellent alternative to silver amalgam fillings. Since these materials are bonded to teeth, they are strong, durable and require minimal removal of tooth structure. The fillings are tooth coloured and are carefully matched to the shade of your tooth. When in place, they are virtually invisible. They restore your teeth to their natural beauty and help you look your best.
Why choose tooth coloured fillings?
- Amalgam fillings in the lower jaw can often be seen when we talk or laugh
- But amalgam fillings can also sometimes be seen in the upper jaw
- These can be unsightly and can also discolour the tooth
- Composite (White) fillings are available to improve this
