For aesthetic reasons, a natural white coloured ‘composite’ material is used, rather than an amalgam filling, which is silver. A natural-coloured filling material can be used for minor repairs to front teeth, like chipped or broken tooth corners. White fillings can also be used on the teeth at the back of your mouth, which means they won’t be seen when you talk or smile, like amalgam fillings can.
We can also provide metal fillings (amalgams) as your dentist may find this a more appropriate filling choice for your mouth.
Together we can find the best sort of filling that will suit your needs and preference.
