As the name suggests, fillings are used to fill up the hole that is left behind after the decayed part of a tooth is removed. Tooth coloured fillings are very popular because they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth and are not obvious like silver or amalgam fillings usually are.
Tooth coloured fillings are an aesthetic alternative to amalgam (silver) fillings. They are also called composite fillings. They are made of resin and glass particles that are long lasting and durable.
In the past amalgam was the strongest material available to fill cavities. With major advancements in technology, tooth coloured fillings (aka resin fillings) are now available.
This advancement allows the Brunswick Dental Group team to place restorations that are strong, durable and virtually invisible to the eye. These tooth coloured fillings are suitable for small to medium restorations in the front and back teeth and importantly they can be completed in one appointment.
