Tooth Coloured Fillings

A composite or white (tooth coloured) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
Due to their natural appearance and strength, white composite fillings are becoming an increasingly popular choice with patients, as they are able to be colour matched, making them indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Composite fillings are the most common form of a tooth restoration. They create a strong bond with the tooth, nearly restoring its original strength and structure.
Tooth coloured composites are used not only for the aesthetics and shade matching, but also for the excellent mechanical properties. Teeth restored with tooth coloured fillings are less sensitive to hot and cold than the ones restored with an amalgam. Moreover, less removal of the tooth is required for the resin composite placement.
