If you have a small or moderate sized cavity in your tooth, we will usually recommend a composite filling, or sometimes a silver filling.
What is a composite filling?
Composite fillings are sometimes referred to as ‘white’ fillings, however in actual fact they are tooth coloured and we will select a composite colour shade that is very similar to the colour of your own tooth shade, so that the filling is invisible or nearly invisible to look like a real tooth.
Benefits of composite fillings
- they are bonded to the natural tooth structure, helping to resist bacterial leakage and helping to hold the natural tooth together so that it resists fracture
- they can be shaped like a natural tooth. Nature made the shape of our teeth both functional and beautiful, we will aim to emulate nature.
At Triangle Dental we only use the highest quality composite material from reputable manufacturers. Take a look at some of our work below.
