We provide composite fillings to restore decayed tooth or mask discolouration and deformities. They can be used for anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth, and are effective in building up broken front teeth in children, where veneers are not yet a suitable treatment. Dental fillings are the better option for patients who prefer a more natural look.
White fillings can be used for various sizes of cavities and can last between five to ten years. Lifespan depends on a variety of factors, which include oral hygiene, diet, type of filing material, and pressure exerted when chewing. These tooth-coloured fillings are now more preferred than amalgam (silver fillings) or gold fillings because of their cosmetic advantage.
The HFO/HRO Composite System
We use a high-quality composite system called HFO/HRI composite, the first system to have ever addressed the five dimensions of tooth colour. This makes the aesthetic quality of our fillings comparable to modern ceramic materials used in veneers and crowns.
Prevention Is Still Better Than Cure
Although we have one of the most composite systems available today, we still believe that the best dental filling is no filling. Prevention is the best medicine. To reduce your risk of decays and other dental problems, we recommend the following practises:
- Brushing twice daily and flossing once daily
- Eating a balanced diet
- Visiting your dentist regularly
- Minimising or giving up use of tobacco
