Cosmetic Fillings

There are alternative, natural-looking materials to conventional silver-coloured or gold fillings. These materials are made from porcelain and composite resins, which are coloured to match natural tooth enamel. Common tooth coloured alternatives include:

Composite fillings — composite fillings are just what the name implies: and mixture of resins and fine particles designed to mimic the colour of natural teeth. Composite fillings provide a pleasing, esthetic alternative to amalgam fillings

Porcelain (ceramic) — this material is usually a combination of porcelain, glass powder and ceramic. Candidates for porcelain fillings are typically crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays. Porcelain fillings are very durable and maintain their form, function and beauty longterm.
