Tooth Coloured Fillings

Let your smile shine, not your fillings

The days are gone where your teeth need to be filled with a mixture of metals, including unsightly silver and gold fillings. At Cardonald Smiles, we offer a type of dental filling which will let you smile wide and with confidence.

The traditional silver amalgam fillings are excellent in terms of durability, but we understand they have a cosmetic drawback of looking unsightly and can turn black over time. White fillings, also known as tooth coloured or composite fillings, are a fantastic alternative for those who wish to opt for an invisible means preserving your teeth and correcting cracks, chips, breaks and cavities.

  • No more unsightly silver coloured fillings
  • They look great and provide lasting benefits for your dental health
  • We can match your fillings to your natural tooth colour
  • Composite resin fillings can restore a tooth's natural appearance
  • Excellent treatment for repairing front teeth
  • Can be used for chips, cracks, broken and tooth decay
  • Mercury-free, unlike some traditional forms of metal fillings
  • Less preparation is needed for a tooth coloured filling

How are tooth coloured fillings fitted?

The procedure to fit a composite filling can be completed in a single visit to us. After an initial consultation, the dentist will:

  • Numb the area if necessary - not every fitting will require an anaesthetic.
  • Remove any decay, previous filling material or weak sections of the tooth.
  • Prepare the area, which includes shaping the hole for the filling to be placed.
  • Place the filling and cure until hardened.
  • Check for comfort, a smooth biting surface and adjust if needed.

It's as simple as that. If you need any dental work completing and would prefer an invisible type of filling, get in touch. Tooth coloured fillings on side and back teeth are available to all of our patients and are not something the NHS offer.

If you're looking to change your fillings from the traditional metal to a composite, we recommend you book a consultation with us first to see if the treatment is the right option for you.
