Dental fillings are used to restore worn or damaged teeth and treat tooth decay. There are many different fillings material available on the market.
Cosmetic Filling Materials
Tooth-coloured (white) fillings have been used in front teeth for cosmetic reasons for many years. Recent improvements in filling materials for back teeth mean these are now more affordable and widely used as an alternative to dental amalgam as well.
However, while the white fillings may look better when they are first placed, these materials have many limitations when placed in back teeth. Therefore, they are sometimes not the first material of choice for a large filling in a back tooth.
At Faith Dental, we will advise you of the different filling material available that best suit your dental situation to restore your teeth for better function and aesthetics.
