Tooth-coloured fillings can be used both to restore decayed areas, and to make cosmetic improvements to your smile by changing the colour and/or shape of the teeth. There are both direct and indirect fillings, and your dentist will help you decide the right option for you.Book An Appointment
If your dentist finds a cavity or damage like a crack or fracture, they may recommend using a composite filling to repair it.
Composite fillings can withstand pressure from the stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth. Because they are white, they also blend in with your natural teeth.
To begin, your dentist will remove the decayed or damaged tooth material, clean the affected area, and then fill the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.
When only one tooth is affected by decay, the filling treatment can be completed in as little as one hour.
Dental inlays and onlays are fillings that are made outside of the mouth and then placed to restore a tooth when a direct filling would be insufficient.
Typically dental inlays and onlays are more durable, and last longer, than a regular dental filling.
