  Mr MD has suffered with discoloured Anterior teeth for years. He consented to Cosmetic correction using the latest generation of nano-filled tooth-coloured Composite fillings and Bonding technology. The latest minimum intervention design is painless and did not require anaesthetics. The case was completed in one visit.

Guide price for both teeth: £350.00

Q: What are tooth-coloured fillings?
A: Tooth-coloured fillings are made from durable plastics mixed with microscopic glass particles, 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.

Q: What are the advantages of tooth-coloured fillings?
A: Because composite resins are tooth-coloured, they look more natural than other filling materials. You can smile and talk with confidence.

  Miss V K presented with chipped and non aligned anterior tooth.

This was corrected with minimal tooth shaping and modern micro-filled composite white filling.

Price guide: £180

Time: A single visit was required.

Q: What are disadvantages?
A:
First, tooth-coloured fillings are not for every tooth. They work best in small restorations and low-stress areas. For example, your dentist may not recommend a tooth-coloured filling for a large cavity or for the chewing surface of a back tooth. Second, tooth-coloured fillings may cost twice as much as silver fillings because they take longer to place. Research has shown that they do not last as long as other restorations.

Q: How do I decide if tooth-coloured fillings are right for me?
A:
Together we will decide what type of filling is best for you. As a rule of thumb, the front teeth are suitable as are small fillings . Large fillings at the back are not suitable. It would be better to place Porcelain Inlays (see CEREC) for strength and durability.

Q: How do I care for tooth-coloured fillings?
A:
Take care of a tooth-coloured filling the same way you take care of any filling: Brush, floss, and visit your dentist. Any filling will last longer with good oral hygiene. Your dentist will regularly check the fillings for colour change, leakage, or unusual wear and inform you of the need for repair or replacement.
