White Fillings
Tooth Whitening


White fillings (composites) are an excellent choice of material for a number of occasions.

This can range from restoring a tooth that has been decayed, to changing the shape of your front teeth to provide a more aesthetic smile. They are different to silver fillings (amalgam) in that they 'stick' to teeth with a type of glue (not like you have at home!), and come in a variety of shades to match your natural teeth. But remember that silver fillings are still a completely safe and good choice of material for filling teeth, and your dentist may advise you against white fillings in some instances.

They can be an excellent alternative to crowns or veneers for changing your smile, as they require little or no drilling away of tooth. The choice of shades available also mean that we can match the filling to look like your natural tooth, so you may not even be able to see where it is!
