Fillings are a form of restoration used to strengthen teeth and prevent further decay.
In the past, patients were restricted to metal fillings, but these were highly visible and the issue of safety has been raised in recent years. White tooth-coloured fillings are a great alternative designed to blend in with natural tooth colour.
White fillings are preferable to mercury amalgam fillings not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for the long-term health of your teeth. They are made from specially formulated composite material, which is moulded to the shape of the cavity and matches the natural shade of the teeth.
White fillings can also be used to improve the aesthetics of the smile as part of a smile makeover.
