Composite Fillings

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Mercury fillings or amalgam fillings can easily be removed and replaced with far more attractive coloured fillings that actually look like part of your tooth rather than a black hole
  • If done properly in the right situation will last as well as anything else available for repairing teeth
  • You can’t seem them, no one knows you have any fillings
  • In most instances, you can eat on the filling straight away
  • Composite fillings are much more technique sensitive than metal filling so it is very important to find a dentist who has a careful and exacting technique to maximise the life of the filling you are receiving
  • Not recommended to be used in situations where the strength of a tooth is already compromised
