Tooth Coloured Fillings
For small to medium sized cavities, we recommend the use of composite resin (white filling material). Modern white fillings are strong, long lasting and have a very natural appearance making them the superior alternative to amalgam metal fillings.
For larger cavities or replacement fillings, we strongly recommend bonded porcelain restorations. The advantages of porcelain are:
- Increased strength - longer lasting
- Bonding to tooth substance - the porcelain will actually bond and support the tooth much better
- Superior aesthetics - porcelain that is artistically shaped and polished has the most life like appearance compared to any dental material
- Precision Fitting – the porcelain inlay or overlay is computer designed in the dental laboratory and hand finished by a master ceramist technician working with magnification loops to ensure the best fit possible
