Tooth Coloured Fillings
At Geoff Ross Dental, we offer white tooth coloured fillings for patients who would like an aesthetically pleasing alternative to metal amalgam fillings
Traditionally, amalgam fillings have been used for hundreds of years. They are essentially safe and long lasting, but are known to look dark, and stain and can weaken teeth.
Composite resin fillings “tooth coloured fillings” are often requested and provided. In many cases, they are long lasting, require less tooth trimming, and are difficult to see once they are polished.
This modern filling material is very strong, and can be colour matched to the shade and translucency of your natural tooth enamel. It is 100% mercury free.
It is important to note that composite resin fillings are not always the most appropriate choice for certain cases and often a decision is required between a variety of modern alternative filling materials, crowns, or porcelain inlays.
