White Fillings (Composite Restorations)
White fillings, made from dental composite, can dramatically improve the appearance of teeth. Done well, with modern materials and techniques, they offer the levels achieved by amalgam in terms of efficiency and durability, whilst far outstripping its aesthetic appeal and not containing mercury. They also have the benefit of being less likely to fracture teeth than amalgam.
Dental composite can also be used as a veneering material to change the shape of teeth, mask discolouration, and improve the appearance of your smile.
In our practice white fillings are more routinely used than amalgam.
