White Fillings


Composite is a “white filling”. Composite works best in small fillings, especially in the front teeth. Whilst it is not very strong, in favourable circumstances, it can be used further back in the mouth.

It is a tooth coloured mix of glass particles suspended in a resin mix and is available in several shades to perfectly match your teeth. It is bonded directly to your teeth which provides a little extra support to the remaining tooth structure.

Composites can be used for a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, including –
• Repair for decay.
• Repairing chipped or broken teeth.
• Closing gaps between your teeth (diastemas).
• Reshaping your teeth.

As the bite forces increase markedly in the rear of the mouth, composite struggles badly and there are better materials for the “white look” with ceramic inlays/onlays and crowns. We will advise you what will work best for you as risky treatment is expensive to fix and at the start, a good choice is imperative!
