White or tooth coloured fillings provide a healthier, more natural alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings. They also allow for a minimally invasive restoration meaning more of your natural tooth can be preserved.
White filings can be used in the front or the back of the mouth. They are the ideal, natural-looking way, to restore strength and function to damaged teeth. Your dentist can build up cracked or chipped teeth with a white filing to restore each tooth to its original look and feel or, it can be used to close gaps, reshape uneven or short teeth and filling cavities caused by tooth decay.
Our white fillings are available in a wide range of shades and opacities. Our team of highly trained dental professionals are able to build up white fillings through a complex ‘layering technique’ to create perfect, yet invisible, restorations that blend into the rest of your smile.

What are the advantages of composite fillings?
Perhaps the most advantageous thing about composite fillings is their cosmetic benefit. Your dentist can create a filling that perfectly matches the shade of your teeth, which in turn makes them look like a natural part of your smile. Like all fillings, composite fillings protect your teeth and help prevent sensitivity after the decayed portion of the tooth is removed.
What is the process of getting composite fillings?
After your teeth have been prepared, the composite filling is placed in layers. A specialised light will then be used to harden each layer. When the process is done, the dentist will shape the composite to fit the tooth. It is then polished to prevent staining and early wear.
