At Astek Dental Centre our highly skilled dental professionals will be pleased to discuss fillings with you as part of your personally tailored treatment plan, giving you the opportunity to choose the dental fillings you desire.
Dental fillings are a common and widely used treatment in modern dentistry.
Dental fillings are typically made of dental amalgam, a metallic compound containing mercury that has been used for fillings for many decades. Fillings made of this amalgam are of a metallic hue and can give a grey tinge to the tooth.
The development of coloured dental fillings
One of the most exciting developments in dentistry is the introduction of tooth coloured fillings that can closely match the appearance of an unfilled tooth to give unrivalled aesthetics.
You do not have to accept having amalgam placed in your teeth anymore. With the advent of dental composites, we can now use a palette of subtle tooth shades to recreate the natural colour variations of your tooth so that it blends in perfectly with its neighbours and you can smile and laugh with confidence.
