Tooth-coloured fillings

At Shine Dental Care in Mansfield, we use tooth-coloured fillings to help restore a naturally beautiful smile. By carefully colour matching the fillings to your surrounding teeth we provide a discreet solution that’s virtually indistinguishable. Although the aesthetic benefits are considerable, tooth-coloured fillings can also be better for your dental health than metal fillings with less risk of decay and tooth sensitivity.*

Our high-quality tooth-coloured fillings can be used to safely replace old amalgam (metal) fillings to fill dental cavities. We are also able to restore worn or chipped teeth with tooth-coloured fillings. Made from predictable and evidence-based materials, tooth-coloured fillings are less likely to shrink over time. They also appear to create less tooth sensitivity when drinking hot or cold drinks.

For you, this means a more stable and aesthetically-pleasing filling with potentially fewer risks than metal fillings. Surrounding teeth are less prone to decay and the tooth-coloured filling material forms a micro mechanical bond with the tooth’s surface meaning that the tooth requires little preparation. This helps to shorten treatment time.*

Frequently asked questions

About tooth-coloured fillings at Shine Dental Care, Mansfield

  1. What are tooth-coloured fillings made of?

    Tooth-coloured fillings are made of tooth-coloured composite to fill cavities and restore chipped or worn teeth. They are made with resin and mixed with clear glass particles into a filling that doesn’t react with body tissues.

  2. How can you make tooth-coloured filling treatment pain free?

    We believe that with the right dental skills and experience, there is no need for any patient to feel pain during their visit. We perform all filling treatments under local anaesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout. Our dentists will continually check that you are feeling fine throughout the procedure.

  1. Will the filling always be tooth coloured?

    Over time, it’s possible for a tooth-coloured filling to be discoloured by food, coffee, wine and smoking.

  2. How long do tooth-coloured fillings last?

    Tooth-coloured fillings are generally long lasting as they don’t tend to shrink in the same way as metal fillings. However, their longevity will depend on their position within your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.
