Invisibly repair and protect damaged teeth or replace unattractive metallic fillings with fillings that mimic the look, feel and function of natural teeth.
The composite are dental fillings that restore and mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure. In addition to restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth colored fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the size, colour and shape of the teeth. This quality is particularly useful in closing gaps between teeth, repairing chipped teeth and making teeth appear to be more straight or even.
The other type of 'white filling' is called a Composite or Porcelain Inlay. These fillings are usually placed in back teeth when aesthetics is of utmost concern. In order to increase their strength and longevity, they are fabricated in the laboratory and then bonded into position in the office. This is a two visit procedure rather than the one visit required to place a composite filling.
However, when it comes to strength and cosmetics, the extra time and expense is well worth it!
