Slade

 

At The Slade Dental Practice & Implant Centre, we can offer our patients, where appropriate, tooth coloured fillings so that no one will ever know that you have a filling.

Another great advantage of tooth coloured fillings is that they have similar physical characteristics to a natural tooth. Tooth coloured (composite) fillings actually “bond” to your tooth, and thus restore the strength of the decayed tooth.

Most people have fillings of one sort or another but today, because we are much more conscious of our smile, we can choose a natural looking alternative - the composite or tooth-coloured filling.

A composite resin is a tooth-coloured plastic mixture filled with glass (silicon dioxide) first introduced in the 1960s. Originally only used for front teeth because of their softer nature, modern improvements to their composition make them generically suitable today.

Composite fillings are more difficult to place than silver fillings so may take your dentist a little longer to complete.

white fillings

 

The main advantage of composite fillings is their aesthetic appeal.

White fillings have always been considered less long lasting than silver amalgam fillings but there are now new materials available with properties comparable to silver amalgam, and these are proving to be very successful.

The life expectancy of your composite filling can depend on the depth of cavity and its position in the mouth; your dentist is best positioned to advise you.
