Also known as composite resins, tooth coloured fillings are sculpted onto your teeth for a flawless look.
A mixture of acrylic resin, fine glass and silicon particles white fillings are sculpted and polished to match your surrounding natural teeth for a beautiful, complete smile. The strength and natural appearance of tooth coloured restorations makes them a popular option, which can be completed in a single visit.
Unlike amalgam (metal) fillings, white fillings are better for your teeth.
Amalgam fillings can expand and contract with extreme temperatures, which can result in a cracked tooth. There is also the chance with amalgam fillings for decay to form underneath the amalgam filling which may mean you will need root canal treatment. With white fillings, the tooth is completely sealed so decay cannot form under the filling.
