Tooth Coloured Fillings

Tooth Coloured Fillings

1. Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are also called plastic or white fillings. Getting this kind of filling depends on where the tooth is in your mouth. We bite down hard on our back teeth (molars), so a plastic filling may not be a good choice.

2. Glass Ionomer Materials

Glass ionomer materials are only used in teeth where you do not bite down hard.

3. Porcelain Materials

Porcelain materials are the most common type of dental ceramic used by dentists. They are hard and brittle. Porcelain and metal can be combined to make a strong, tooth-coloured crown.
