Silver and gold fillings used to be our only choices for restoring your damaged or decayed teeth but advances in dental material technology have created strong new synthetic tooth-coloured restorative materials that help you look your best.
If you decide you would like your tooth restored with a white material, we can use either porcelain or composite resin, which is a plastic-like substance (follow this link for more about composite fillings). We will carefully match the chosen material to your natural teeth, so the restoration will blend in well.
Both porcelain and composite resin bond securely to your tooth, so the restorations are extremely strong and durable. Also, because they are bonded, we can be more conservative when we prepare your tooth for the filling, so you retain more of your natural, healthy tooth structure.
