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
