White fillings

White fillings or composites are used to build up existing teeth and restore them to their original form and function, using the latest bonding technology. Recently, the materials available for this sort of dental work have improved in strength and aesthetics and they are consequently a very popular treatment, particularly for visible front teeth. It is also a non-invasive treatment which builds on your existing tooth structure and involves the removal of only the decayed part of your tooth.

Porcelain inlays and onlays

Inlays and onlays are similar to composites (link to white fillings page) and are used to fill in areas of the teeth that have been lost, or when a filling needs to be replaced. Like composites, they are a healthier alternative to traditional amalgam fillings, as they contain no metal, and they fit perfectly into the spaces that need to be filled so are less susceptible to decay once the restoration is completed.

Inlays and onlays are extremely versatile and can cover a wide range of minor imperfections. Highly customisable, they blend seamlessly with your natural tooth colour for an invisible cosmetic and functional solution.
