Due to significant advances in materials, we can now offer much more aesthetically pleasing solutions to fill in tooth cavities.

Traditionally Amalgam fillings (silver coloured fillings) were used however we now offer Composite Fillings (also called tooth coloured fillings) to fill in cavities. Composite Fillings are designed to match the colour of natural teeth, making them more discreet and difficult to detect.

White fillings have always been considered less long lasting than silver amalgam fillings however there are now new materials available with properties comparable to silver amalgam and these are proving to be very successful.

The life expectancy of a white filling can depend greatly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.

Your dentist can advise you on the life expectancy of your fillings.

Composite fillings are bonded to the tooth supporting the remaining structure and creating a strong and durable solution. Composite fillings can be placed anywhere in the mouth, including on the front teeth and on biting surfaces in the back of the mouth.
