If you require a filling in your tooth, a cosmetic option would be to choose a white filling material that matches the shade of your surrounding natural teeth. You can also have any existing metallic fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or 'white' fillings.
WHY CHOOSE WHITE FILLINGS?
White fillings are considered more natural looking as they are matched to the colour of the surrounding teeth. This often makes then a preferred option over other types of fillings, such as amalgam.
You can also have any existing metallic fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or 'white' fillings. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.
This is a safe procedure that entails the removal of any decay from your tooth, and taking out the metal or amalgam fillings if you are having them replaced.
The new filling is made from a very hard tooth-coloured substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time.
The restoration is completed in one visit and your fillings will not be visible when you smile.
HOW WHITE FILLINGS WORK?
Improved cosmetic appearance of filled teeth while still being able to bite and chew as usual.
Hard-wearing restorative solution.

"Most patients I see are nervous, self-conscious of their teeth and think that nothing can be done. They're always surprised at the options available and how we can help them. Sometimes very little treatment can make such a dramatic change.
The most satisfying part of the job is not only seeing the difference in a person’s teeth, but the difference in the person; more confident, smiling and not worrying about coming to the dentist."
