One option to improve the appearance of your smile is to have your old, metal fillings replaced with tooth-coloured composite or 'white' fillings. This is a safe procedure in which the metal filling in the tooth is removed, including any decay detected and a tooth-coloured filling is placed instead. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural overall appearance.
We believe prevention is better than cure and will always encourage and guide you in looking after your teeth to prevent decay in the first place. If however, you do require a filling then we like to recommend tooth-coloured fillings as a solution that is both aesthetic and functional.
Tooth fillings under some circumstances may not be the best solution for your health. The size of the cavity, the position of the cavity, the position of the decayed tooth may need a different restorative treatment such as dental crowns, dental bridges or dental veneers.
