Tooth Coloured Fillings in Ashfield, Sydney

Tooth coloured fillings are widely used these days instead of the traditional silver coloured amalgam fillings. Almost all patients prefer to have a white filling placed in their mouth primarily for aesthetic reasons and as part of their cosmetic dentistry plans.

Dental fillings are essential to arrest caries or external trauma from damaging more tooth structure. The procedure involves removing the existing decay, etching and bonding the tooth for the filling to adhere to the tooth and then the filling is placed in layers using an UV light to cure it. At the end, the filling is shaped to fit the tooth and is smoothed to prevent any sharp edges. Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance but are not as strong as ceramics, which are more resistant to staining and abrasion.

Our team of dentists at Ashfield Dental Centre will restore the tooth function, as well as your confidence.
