Tooth-coloured fillings

We always use tooth-coloured fillings on front teeth, however for back teeth the patient has a choice of silver amalgam fillings and tooth-coloured fillings. Amalgam is a very strong and durable material but lacks the aesthetic advantage of tooth coloured fillings.

Tooth-coloured fillings are a one appointment procedure, where the filling is placed and shaped to look like a 'normal' tooth.
However for larger restorations inlays, onlays or crowns might be the better choice of treatment.
