Natural-Coloured Fillings

As well as providing an effective repair for tooth decay or damage, composite (or white) fillings offer a natural looking alternative to more obvious amalgam fillings. This is because they are made from tooth coloured resin, a mixture of plastic and glass, which blends in with your teeth.

They support the structure of a damaged tooth, helping to prevent further breakage and sensitivity and can be placed in the front or back teeth.

Treatment steps

  • The area to be treated is numbed with a local anaesthetic and the decayed area of tooth removed.
  • The colour matched shade of composite is applied in layers.
  • Each layer is hardened with a special bright light and the resin shaped to provide a functional restoration.

Your dentist will advise on suitability of tooth coloured fillings for you.
