Tooth Coloured Fillings

What are Tooth Coloured Fillings?

Similar to how Veneers are created, we can use Tooth Coloured Fillings to reconstruct the shape of a chipped tooth or to close gaps in teeth.

Tooth coloured fillings are primarily a resin which has been "filled" with other inorganic materials. This compound makes a composite filling more resistant to wear, color adjustable, and easier to polish. The advantages of choosing a composite filling include a more natural appearance, frequently a strengthening of the filled tooth, and a bonding of the filling to the tooth creating a better seal. This bonding also means that the filling can often be made smaller than a comparable silver filling since silver requires certain size criteria be met to resist breaking or falling out.

Tooth coloured fillings are more aesthetically pleasing than using other materials, as they are unnoticeable once completed and this is why we recommend these to close gaps in teeth or to reconstruct a chipped or broken tooth.
