Tooth Coloured Restoration

Posted by Default Admin on 24 August 2015

You've probably heard of white fillings but here at Brilliant we have a different name for them. Why? Because we have a range of shades available so that our fillings can match the exact shade of your teeth and be completely inconspicuous.

How do you know if you need a filling? They will be used to treat cavities: a hole in the teeth. Cavities are a consequence of tooth decay. Plaque is created when bacteria in the mouth combine with saliva and food debris. When the bacteria turn carbohydrates into energy, they release acid and when there is a build-up of plaque, there will be an increase in acid which breaks down the surface of the teeth to form several smaller holes until a large one appears. This is a cavity and where you will probably need a filling.

At Brilliant, we will numb the area around the tooth and insert the filling into the cavity. The filling is shaped to look and feel natural and thanks to our tooth coloured material, will blend in with the rest of your teeth.

It's also worth noting that we also have a range of tooth whitening options available, including tooth whitening treatments and a cosmetic tooth polish. So if you do opt for a gleaming white option we can ensure that the rest of your teeth match them!

If you think you may need a filling, please call us on 01443 887564 to discuss your options or book an appointment.
