Tooth-coloured fillings can provide equally effective repairs as amalgam ones, but they offer a much better-looking alternative. Made from a durable composite resin, they can restore the shape and functionality of a tooth in a pleasingly unnoticeable way.
Tooth-coloured fillings are becoming increasingly popular, and at Smile Crieff, we are passionate about avoiding the use of amalgam fillings wherever possible. In the majority of cases, we try to place tooth-coloured fillings in both front and back tooth. We can also use these more discreet fillings to replace existing amalgam ones, so your mouth is free from unsightly patches.
If necessary, we use a local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort and then remove the decayed part of the tooth, as well as any discoloured filling or tooth surface. We shape and clean the cavity and carefully apply the composite resin in layers.
Finally, the filling is sculpted to look like a natural tooth and then hardened with a special light, before being polished. At Smile Crieff, we are so confident we can achieve the very best matching tooth-coloured results, we challenge you to point out which tooth has been filled!
To prevent decay from developing around your filling, we recommend you keep your teeth clean by regularly brushing with a fluoride toothpaste and see us for check-ups so we can spot any problems at an early stage.
