Teeth Fillings Tauranga
Natural tooth-coloured fillings are referred to as resin, composite or white fillings. These fillings are bonded to the tooth. Aesthetically, they are an attractive alternative to silver-mercury fillings. These natural fillings look like your teeth and are an easy way to improve your smile.
When teeth are decayed chipped, cracked, uneven, or discoloured, bonded composite can be used to change the colour, shape or the size of your teeth.
For some individuals, bonding is a long-lasting and cost-effective procedure for closing small gaps between the teeth or changing the outside surface of the tooth. Bonding can last from five to eight years. However, for those individuals looking for greater aesthetic results or durability porcelain laminate veneers are a natural and long lasting alternative; but require removal of some tooth structure.
Composite fillings are used in many situations and with the continuing improvements in both materials and techniques they are performing well in small through to large restorations.
Silver amalgam may be used for certain situations where appropriate.
