How can we help you?
Unlike metal fillings, tooth-coloured fillings are a custom-mixed resin composite. The composite mixture is matched to your tooth colour and bonded directly to the tooth. This usually results in a filling that is nearly indistinguishable from your natural tooth.
Composite fillings bond directly to your tooth, which results in less healthy tooth removal. Amalgam(metal) fillings require additional preparation to provide anchors for the solid amalgam.
Composite fillings are not as hard and inflexible as amalgam fillings, which means stresses caused by biting and chewing can be distributed more naturally and reduce the risk of your tooth cracking.
