What are fillings for?
Fillings are used to restore a tooth following cavity treatment and to repair broken, cracked or worn teeth.
Porcelain and white fillings offer a safer alternative to mercury fillings and are virtually undetectable as they can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth. They will not become loose, fall out or impact the structure of your tooth.
White composite fillings are ideal for treating small to medium-sized cavities. This type of filling is made using a composite resin, which is colour matched with your natural teeth to provide a seamless smile.
White fillings require only a very small amount of your natural tooth to be removed, which helps preserve the natural integrity of your tooth. White composite fillings are safe, sturdy, and ideal for a wide range of conditions and ages.
Porcelain fillings are used to treat teeth with large cavities or areas where maximum chewing pressure is required. Porcelain fillings are precisely matched to your natural tooth colour to eliminate any evidence of dental work.
Porcelain fillings offer the strongest, most reliable solution for dental restoration. Both porcelain fillings and white composite fillings provide ultimate functionality and superior aesthetic results.
Many patients choose to have their old metal fillings replaced with porcelain or white fillings to strengthen their teeth and reduce the unappealing appearance of a metallic smile.
