For a more subtle solution
Modern white fillings are made from composite resin, providing a durable, yet unnoticeable, solution for decayed or damaged teeth. They can also be used to replace existing amalgam (silver) fillings as they have a more attractive appearance.
White fillings – the Sutton Aesthetic way
At Sutton Aesthetic Dentistry, Dr Afzal has the necessary experience and expertise to be able to create fillings that not only look attractive but also last for years.
Dr Afzal generally only recommends white fillings for small to medium-sized cavities. When a larger filling is required, a porcelain inlay or onlay will be more effective and longer lasting.
