Cosmetic Dentistry » Tooth Coloured Fillings
If the cavity is not too extensive, the decay can be removed and the cavity restored with tooth coloured fillings. These white fillings are an option to improve the cosmetic look of your smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.
As well as the safe replacement of your metal (amalgam) fillings we can also replace any old white fillings to produce a more aesthetic result. Adit and Sheetal have travelled to Leuven, Belgium to the European Headquarters of GC (the company that create our white filling materials) and undertaken further training using the Layering Technique for white fillings. Rather than a single coloured filling material placed using a metal instrument, they will use various shades of material painted on with brushes to produce a tooth coloured filling with a high aesthetic result.
But remember, prevention is always better than cure and we will always encourage and help you to look after your teeth so you don't develop tooth decay in the first place. If you do have decay and need a filling then we can consider white fillings as a solution that is both aesthetic and functional.
