White Fillings in Shrewsbury
Fillings are one of the most basic methods of restoring teeth. They do exactly what their name suggests – they fill a hole in the tooth that has been caused by decay, playing an important role in helping us to keepa tooth for many more years.
In the past fillings were always made out of either gold ora silver-coloured alloy called amalgam. Both of these materials are extremelydurable and in some circumstances they are still the best choice available. Butthey both have one disadvantage – they do not match the natural white teeth in appearance.
The most effective, modern, tooth-coloured materials enable you to have white fillings. Unlike the more traditional grey amalgam fillings, the tooth-coloured ones look very natural, so no-one will be able to tell you have them. We can use either a special type of reinforced plastic called composite, or a variety of different ceramic materials related to glass or porcelain. This means that we can create beautiful, natural looking fillings that wont spoil you smile.
