Composite is the white filling material. This allows an aesthetic tooth coloured result which is strong and durable. Latest advances in dental materials means that white fillings can be placed anywhere in the mouth. They follow the principles of minimally invasive dentistry.
Only the diseased tooth tissues have to be removed as the composite bonds to the tooth. We can fabricate white fillings so that they are completely unnoticeable in the mouth.
Traditional amalgam fillings have been around for over 100 years! They are tried and tested offering functional results. However, amalgam contains mercury which is toxic to the environment. With advances in dentistry and the development of superior materials, we don’t need to use amalgam anymore; white fillings can perform just as well. That is why at D4Dentist we are amalgam free. We care about the environment
Don’t worry if you already have amalgam fillings, they are perfectly safe in the mouth.
