Restoration with Tooth Coloured Restorative Material!

Direct tooth coloured restorations consist of a material called composite resin. Composite resin fillings are matched and blended to the same natural colour as your own teeth and since they are bonded can also help strengthen the tooth.

Composites are preferable for obvious cosmetic reasons but if the decayed area is large or subject to heavy chewing forces, an alternative type of material or restoration may be recommended as being more appropriate.

Tooth Colour Restoration is an option that can be considered:

  • To repair cavities
  • To repair chipped or broken teeth
  • To change the colour of discolored teeth.
  • To close gaps between front teeth.
  • To make teeth look longer
  • As an alternative to silver fillings.
  • To protect the roots of teeth when gums recede
