Tooth Coloured Fillings

Tooth Coloured Fillings are long lasting and offer brilliant cosmetic and restorative results. They are completed using either of two materials, dental ceramic or composite resin. The most durable and aesthetic material for Tooth Coloured Fillings is dental ceramic, also known as porcelain.

Your ceramic Tooth Coloured Filling procedure can be completed using our CEREC computerised technology system. Your tooth will be prepared, and then scanned by the CEREC Camera. This camera will take a three dimensional image of the prepared area using infrared waves. The scan will measure the tooth structure and your filling is then designed and milled from a solid ceramic block. This provides you with a perfect, quality long-lasting restoration all in one appointment.

Composite resin Tooth Coloured Fillings are also available and are sculpted directly onto your tooth and hardened with the use of a specially developed curing light. Whilst this type of restoration is effective in smaller applications, ceramic restorations typically offer double the life span of resin Tooth Coloured Fillings.
