Tooth-Coloured Fillings – Orpington
At SmileMaker Dental Care, we believe that the overall health & peace of mind of our patients always comes first. Accordingly, at our office we have elected only to use new & advanced tooth fillings made of tooth-coloured materials. We are able to offer you subtle, flattering options for fillings. Our tooth-coloured or white tooth fillings are essentially indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Tooth-coloured material is made of durable composite, resin or porcelain & can be used both as fillings & to repair defects in the teeth. Tooth-coloured fillings are often used on the front teeth where a natural appearance is important. They can be used on the back teeth as well, depending on the location & extent of the tooth decay.
While our biggest concern is the health & function of your teeth, we are proud to offer tooth filling options that do not affect the aesthetics of your smile.
If you require a filling in your tooth, a cosmetic option would be to choose a white filling material that matches the shade of your surrounding natural teeth. You can also have any existing metallic fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or 'white' fillings. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.
Here is how white fillings work:
This is a safe procedure that entails the removal of any decay from your tooth, and taking out the metal or amalgam fillings if you are having them replaced.
The new filling is made from a very hard tooth-coloured substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time.
The restoration is completed in one visit and your fillings will not be visible when you smile.
