Forget the days of silver amalgam fillings, our cosmetic tooth-coloured composite fillings, are a modern, aesthetic and hard-wearing solution that is amalgam/mercury-free and unnoticeable from your natural teeth. The composite filling resin material is gently layered onto the affected tooth after a deep cleaning of the cavity and then hardened by an intense light that activates the setting process.
Your dentist will then check your bite for any high spots and polish the material until it is as smooth as your natural tooth. This pain-free procedure should last approximately 20-40 minutes depending on the severity of your cavity.
Rest assured, white fillings are not just for new treatments. We can switch your amalgam* (metal-based) fillings to our discreet, natural-looking fillings, so that you can smile with confidence.
