Tooth Coloured Fillings
Do you want to reinvigorate your smile without resorting to costly cosmetic procedures? One of the fastest and easiest ways to get a brand new smile is to opt for white fillings, which can be used to cover unsightly marks, repair a chipped or broken front tooth and enhance the shape of your front teeth, as well as being used for standard fillings.
You may well already have fillings made from the grey-silver ‘amalgam’ that has been used in dentistry for over 150 years, and you may even remember your dentist telling you that these fillings were preferable because they were so much stronger and longer lasting than white ones. However, white fillings have become much stronger as manufacturers discover new materials that rival the strength of amalgam fillings. In addition to this, as new materials have developed over recent years, it has become much easier to find a perfect colour match to your teeth, making repairs virtually invisible.
The idea that you have to choose between strength and appearance is now a thing of the past because with modern white fillings you can have function and aesthetics in one.
