A dental filling is a treatment for teeth that are damaged by decay, known as cavities. They help restore the tooth back to its normal function and shape while preventing further decay. They are also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).
At our Lara practice we offer white dental fillings, which are durable and offer natural looking results.
What is a white filling:
There are different types of materials available for dental fillings, including silver and porcelain. White fillings, also known as tooth coloured fillings or composite fillings are made from composite resin and are known as white fillings because of its white colour that is used to match the colour of your teeth.
