Tooth Coloured Fillings
There has been a shift away from silver fillings (amalgam) to tooth coloured fillings with modern technology. It is important to note that silver fillings are not harmful and very durable and long-lasting. However, they do not look natural; that’s why our dentists 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
