Tooth Coloured Fillings

Traditional amalgam fillings are dark in colour and although they work effectively, they do stand out against your naturally white teeth.

An attractive alternative is tooth coloured composite resin fillings. They are made of a plastic material mixed with small glass particles, and are suitable for restoring the front and back teeth. Composite resin fillings are hard wearing and durable, and they are bonded directly to what remains of the tooth. Composite resin fillings are completed in a single appointment, and are set in your tooth with a special light so you can bite on your new restoration as soon as you leave the surgery.
