White Fillings » Composite Fillings
White fillings or Composite fillings can be matched to the natural colour of your teeth; this means fillings are less noticeable. This is especially important if fillings are needed in front teeth that are visible when you smile. Dark old and failing amalgam can be safely replaced with white tooth coloured filling by our cosmetic dentist.
The benefits of composite restorations are:
- Only the disease part of the tooth is removed to place the fillin this preserve the existing tooth structure for years to come
- Does not corrode like silver fillings (Amalgam).
- They bond to the tooth giving it greater strength, which helps prevent breaks
- They can be repaired if damaged
- Composite hardens immediately after placement so tooth can be used to eat immediately after treatment unlike Silver filling (Amalgam takes several hours to harden)
- 100% Mercury Free
- Can be used to reshape teeth to improve Smile
