In the past, a cavity meant having a highly visible gold or silver filling. Nowadays, fillings made of natural colours are perfectly matched to the colour of your natural teeth.
Routine fillings are now quick and painless thanks to advances in dentistry. Usually, only a local anaesthetic is needed to make the area immediately surrounding the injured tooth painless.

Why Choose Tooth Coloured Fillings?
Aesthetics: Although tooth-colored fillings offer various advantages over metal fillings, patients primarily pick these fillings for their visual attractiveness. Tooth-colored fillings can readily restore your smile without showing any differences because they can be made to match your teeth.
Longevity: With proper maintenance, fillings can last 10 years or even longer. Your fillings will last longer if you maintain good dental hygiene practises daily and schedule routine exams. Your fillings might even survive 20 years or longer with these precautions.
Rapid Intervention: In most situations, one or even two minor cavities can be filled in within an hour.
No Mercury: The fact that silver fillings contain minute levels of mercury is one of the reasons why so many patients choose tooth-colored fillings. Despite the fact that studies have demonstrated that there is little to no risk to patients from having silver fillings, many people find comfort in knowing that their fillings are mercury-free.
Better tooth structure: Less of your natural tooth will need to be removed when you use composite fillings. Unlike a silver amalgam filling, this will maintain the overall structure of your tooth stronger.
