Effective restoration with improved white fillings

White fillings

A composite posterior restoration is the procedure used to fill in spaces or holes in teeth created by a cavity or other tooth damage. The process is designed to restore the tooth as closely as possible back to its original strength and durability.

Tooth decay (cavities) is a serious issue and the most common disease that affects humans. If left untreated, it can become a serious threat to your oral hygiene and be very painful. Dental fillings can be used to stop the decay and restore your teeth for normal every day functioning.

The latest composite fillings (white fillings) have improved enormously over the years and have now replaced silver mercury fillings.

We use materials that are coloured to match your tooth. Fillings are completed in one visit and once your tooth is completely free of decay, the dentist will restore the tooth to normal.

For those patients who have teeth with little or no sound supporting structure or who have a heavy bite or are grinders etc., then an alternative would be to place a ceramic restoration on this tooth to give it the best possible protection.
