Fillings are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or have been cracked or broken.
Composite fillings or white dental fillings can be matched to the natural colour of your teeth, meaning that the fillings are less noticeable. This is especially important if fillings are needed in front teeth that are visible when you smile. Composite fillings are strong and hard wearing depending on the material used. Our experienced dentists will explain this procedure thoroughly before commencing with treatment.
Benefits of Dental Fillings
- Prevention – By having teeth filled and treated quickly after decay has been found or a break is noticed the tooth will be prevented from deteriorating further and avoids the need for more extensive dental treatment.
- Long lasting – Tooth coloured fillings can last many years depending on how well you look after your teeth.
- Appearance – Composite or white dental fillings usually look like your natural teeth and are great for replacing silver or amalgam fillings.
- Support – White dental fillings bond to your teeth offering support to the tooth structure.
