Fillings are typically made of dental amalgam, a metallic compound containing mercury that has been used for fillings for decades.
These can, however, be replaced with white fillings, and help to achieve a smile you’re proud of.
Fillings are used to repair damaged teeth following decay, tooth wear or trauma. Cosmetic dental fillings are bonded to the tooth structure, and are coloured to accurately match your individual tooth.
Not only do they provide you with a natural appearance, they also require less tooth preparation than metal fillings, and therefore are a less destructive form of restoration.
