Composite (White) Fillings


Composite fillings, also called white or tooth-coloured fillings can be used to replace traditional amalgam fillings (which are silver grey in colour).

New dental materials mean that it is much easier to find a perfect match for the shade of a particular tooth.

In most cases, with white fillings, it is impossible to tell that the tooth has a filling.

Composite filling material can sometimes be used to cover unsightly marks on teeth, in a similar way to veneers.
