What are composite fillings?
A composite or white filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay and cracks. Because composite fillings are tooth-coloured, they can be closely matched to the colour of existing teeth for an aesthetically pleasing finish. They are also very durable and will last many years, giving you a long-lasting, beautiful smile.
Why consider composite fillings?
Chipped teeth when the chip is small
When an old silver filling looks unaesthetic or the silver filling has failed
When a tooth with an old filling looks stained or becomes sensitive
How are composite fillings placed?
Composite fillings are placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, it will be thoroughly cleaned and carefully prepared. The filling is then placed and polished, restoring the tooth to its original shape and function. Good oral hygiene practices, good eating habits and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new fillings.
Why are our fillings mercury-free?
We are a strictly mercury-free practice. We use only safe, bio-compatible tooth-coloured filling material for your overall health. The decision to have your old silver fillings replaced is an important one and you want a practice that shares the same concerns as you do.
