At Bloxdent we understand that our patients want fillings to be both functional but natural looking also. Tooth coloured fillings can be used as an alternative to silver amalgam fillings.
Tooth coloured fillings are made from a composite resin material that is adhesively or directly bonded to the tooth. This is a more conservative approach, which means that less of the natural tooth needs to be removed as is the case with a traditional filling, thereby preserving more natural tooth. Composite fillings can be placed in almost all cavities where a ‘silver’ filling may be used or is already present. Our dentists can discuss with you options for new or replacement tooth coloured fillings
