Tooth Coloured Fillings

Tooth coloured fillings can be used to re-create the natural appearance of teeth. Therefore when you talk laugh or smile you don’t have to show off unsightly black lumps in the back of your mouth. The white filling materials used at Total Dental bond to natural teeth so they can be used to repair decayed or broken teeth.

Tooth coloured fillings can be created to blend in very closely with your own teeth.

What does having a tooth coloured filling involve?

tooth coloured fillings are usually applied under a local anaesthetic in order to numb the area around the tooth. Old fillings and any decay are removed as necessary. The filling material is placed carefully in small amounts until the original tooth shape is re-created. The filling material is set by shining a small ultra violet or bright light onto it for a few seconds. Finally, the new filling is finely polished.

What are the benefits of tooth coloured fillings?

Tooth coloured fillings are available to closely match the colour and characteristics of your natural teeth. White fillings can also be used to reshape and rebuild teeth that are broken or have been worn down. In general a tooth that is going to have a white filling requires less preparation when compared to an silver or amalgam filling.
