As part of our expertise in restorative cosmetic dentistry, we offer tooth-coloured and white fillings. White fillings have certain advantages over silver (amalgam) fillings.

Tooth coloured fillings – sometimes referred to as white fillings – are used to fill in cavities and protect your tooth from getting infected. Tooth coloured fillings are made from either a composite or glass ionomer and are secured onto the tooth with either a chemical reaction or resin. We provide our tooth-coloured/white filling services to patients across Essex.

Composite Tooth-Coloured Fillings

Composite tooth-coloured fillings contain powdered glass and ceramic which is added to a resin base. This type of filling is not as hard wearing as an amalgam filling.

Glass Ionomer Fillings

Glass ionomer fillings are made from powdered glass which chemically bonds with the tooth. This type of tooth coloured filling is normally applied to milk teeth or around the sides of your tooth.

Are tooth-coloured fillings suitable for you?

Whether you can have a tooth-coloured filling or not is determined by the extent of the damage to your teeth. You will be informed if a tooth-coloured filling is suitable for you during your consultation.

Benefits of White Fillings

  • No mercury
  • Bonds better to teeth
  • Less drilling due to better bonding
  • More aesthetically pleasing
  • Fewer long-term fractures than silver fillings (amalgams)
  • Fewer long-term sensitivity issues compared to silver fillings, as they have no metallic particles
