cosmetic dentistry » fillings

The most common and simplest way to restore a decayed or broken tooth is with a filling. This might be with a traditional silver amalgam filling or more commonly nowadays with a tooth-coloured or “white” filling material.

Dental amalgam is a very strong and effective material but not aesthetically pleasing. If a filling is visible or in a front tooth then a tooth-coloured filling can be used.

Your dentist will discuss with you which material is appropriate for you in each situation.

White Fillings

Over the last 20 years or so, technological developments such as bonding and dental adhesives have made white and tooth coloured fillings much more reliable than they once were.

Nowadays the majority of small and medium fillings can be done with these more aesthetically pleasing materials.
