We use tooth coloured fillings for minor decayed teeth and small cavities. We firstly remove any dental decay from the tooth and then apply the white filling.
We can also use white fillings to replace metal or amalgam fillings for greater aesthetics and a more natural looking smile.
Cavities occur when the tooth’s enamel becomes softened due to acid attacks, which then produce holes in the tooth.
For more information about tooth decay please see our preventative dentistry section.
