Tooth Coloured Fillings
With modern technology, there has been a shift away from silver fillings (amalgam) to tooth coloured fillings. It is important to note that silver fillings are not harmful and very durable and long-lasting. However, they do not look natural, that why our dentist use tooth coloured fillings in almost all scenarios.
Tooth coloured fillings are made up of composite resins.
The benefits of tooth coloured fillings :
- aesthetically pleasing
- can be matched to natural tooth
- can strength weak tooth
- require less tooth structure to be removed
- chemically bond to the tooth
