What are Aesthetic Fillings?

When we refer to aesthetic “fillings” we are talking about one of two types of natural-looking tooth-colored restorations that are substitutes for “yesterday’s” amalgam and gold fillings.

A dental filling is an easy way to restore a tooth damaged by decay, back to its normal function, integrity and shape. The process of dental fillings involves removing of the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area, and finally filling the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.

Materials we use for fillings include porcelain, a composite resin (for tooth-coloured fillings) and gold. Generally composite resins (for tooth-coloured fillings) are the most popular and are more reliable choice for fillings as they are strong, durable, and make for a very natural looking smile.
