At TRUST Dental we can replace old, unsightly amalgam with natural-looking, tooth-coloured filling material. White fillings are usually made of composite resin. Nowadays the material comes in a wide range of shades that can be matched to your tooth’s dentine and enamel layers. Unlike amalgam, the material is bonded to the tooth and can even help to strengthen it.
For larger cavities, we can restore the tooth with an inlay. Inlays are made of porcelain and are fabricated in a dental laboratory specifically to fit your cavity. Inlays blend in with the tooth they are to restore. Because they are bonded, they strengthen the tooth and are very durable, lasting for many years.
White fillings can also be used to repair the sides of your teeth. The material is often applied in thin sections to restore chipped, worn or broken teeth, or to close gaps in between teeth.
