Composite Or White Filing

A filling replaces part of a tooth that has been lost because of decay or through accidental damage.

Unlike silver fillings, white filling material sticks to teeth, it may be effectively used to repair teeth that are chipped, broken, decayed or worn.

White fillings are less noticeable than silver, which may turn black in the mouth. White fillings come in a range of shades so they can be matched to the colour of your own teeth.

A tooth needs less preparation for a white filling than for a silver filling.
