Unlike silver fillings, white filling materials stick to the tooth surface. This means that less tooth is drilled away.
Once the cavity has been cleared out and conditioned, a filling material is matched to the colour of your tooth and then placed. It is set (hardened) with a specially designed bright light.
At the final stage, the filling is trimmed and polished so it fits in more naturally with the contours of the rest of your tooth.

Yes, though we generally recommend that fillings of any kind be replaced only when this is clinically necessary: for example, where decay occurs beneath or around an existing filling or a filling breaks. Sometimes, when the existing fillings are very large, a composite filling may not be an option – a porcelain inlay may be required.
Composite fills as with all dental work will have normal wear and tear but should give you years of good service ,good oral hygiene and maintenance will give them an even longer lifespan.
Many patients prefer tooth coloured fillings because they look natural and other people can’t see them when you laugh or smile. Composite fillings are often called “white fillings” but we actually use a wide range of different shades to exactly match the natural colour of your teeth.
