Fillings are often required due to cracked, chipped or damaged teeth.
Here at Subi Smilemakers we provide modern white/ ceramic fillings which blend in with the colour of your teeth. These are a great choice for patients who are concerned about the aesthetics of traditional metal (gold or Amalgam) fillings.
Composite (White) fillings can be an alternative to amalgam fillings. They are made of a plastic material mixed with small glass particles and are tooth coloured, rather than silver. They are suitable for repairing both the front and back teeth. After preparing the tooth, your dentist will place layers of the composite filling into the area to be repaired. Each layer of the composite material is hardened by exposure to a special light. Once the cavity or defect is filled, your dentist can trim the composite to fit the tooth and then polish it to reduce discolouration or staining.
Composite fillings can be fitted into very small holes, so less drilling is needed in preparation for the fillings.
