Natural Looking Fillings
Restore Your Teeth with Discreet,
Natural-Looking Tooth Coloured Fillings
When decay forms it is necessary to receive a filling to stop the spread and to regain the strength of your original tooth. If left untreated decay can cause further structural problems, such as decay to the surrounding teeth.
White fillings can be blended to match the natural shade of your teeth. The composite resin used to make them, can be used to elegantly restore cracked or chipped teeth – improving their strength and appearance. Composite white fillings are a crucial part of dentistry, and our skilled practitioners make an art form of shaping and modelling the resin to fit in perfectly with the damaged tooth.
We use the latest technology when restoring your teeth, and all our fillings are more natural in appearance and safer than the original amalgam fillings that contain mercury. White fillings actually impart strength to the teeth because they bond directly to the enamel and dentine, unlike amalgams that fill the space and can exert enough pressure to break the surrounding teeth over time.
The life expectancy of a tooth coloured filling depends on where it sits in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite. At Dental Domain we will discuss how these factors affecting your case and look at your options before you decide.
If you wanted to know whether it is a good idea to replace your amalgam fillings with tooth coloured fillings, it is usually best to change fillings only when your dentist judges that an old filling needs replacing. If so, we would be happy to replace it with a tooth coloured filling.
