Fillings are a very effective way to repair teeth that have been damaged either by injury or decay.
We use a number of different filling materials such as composite(white fillings), amalgam(silver) and porcelain fillings. During your visit we will discuss the different types with you and help you choose the one that suits you best.
Composite (white) fillings are made from natural tooth coloured resins that are more aesthetically pleasing and can be matched to a similar colour as your teeth.
Amalgam (silver) fillings are made from different metals and are silver in appearance. Amalgam fillings are resistant to wear; however, due to their colour they are more noticeable than composite fillings and are not usually used in very visible areas, such as front teeth.
Porcelain fillings are called inlays or onlays and are made by a dental technician in a dental laboratory and then bonded to the tooth. They can be matched to the colour of the tooth, resist staining, and are extremely durable.
