Tooth-coloured fillings are made from durable plastics called composite resins. Similar in colour and texture to natural teeth, the fillings are less noticeable, and much more attractive, than other types of fillings.

A composite filling is both durable and cosmetically pleasing. When glued to a tooth, it provides an effective barrier against bacteria and also holds the tooth together.

By swapping an existing amalgam filling for a composite filling, you can help to prevent already cracked teeth from breaking; unlike glass ionomer fillings, composite filling are as tough and durable as amalgam fillings.

Because composite resins are tooth-coloured, they look more natural than other filling materials. You can smile, talk, and eat with confidence.
