Fillings are used to repair small or medium holes in teeth that have been caused by tooth decay or injury.
White fillings (also know as tooth-coloured fillings) consist of a composite material combining glass particles with resin.
Did you know?..
The tooth-filling resins come in a variety of different colours so the natural colour of the tooth can be replicated. These fillings are bonded to the tooth, therefore reinforcing the tooth and may help to prevent fracture.
Whether for health or purely aesthetic reasons, many people choose to have their mercury amalgam fillings replaced with modern white composite (tooth-coloured) fillings.
PVB Dental is an amalgam free practice.
