Despite exercising excellent oral habits, your teeth may still be subject to decay, fracture, and deterioration. Whether by natural causes or neglect, having imperfect teeth can greatly affect your day-to-day transactions.
A persistent pain from your decayed tooth or even a gap in your front teeth can do a lot of damage to your confidence. You might not want to smile at all!
But at Lightwood Dental, all of these problems can be solved! Your state of the art Lightwood Dental clinic can return your smile to its former glory.
At Lightwood Dental, we restore teeth fractures and decay with the latest in modern dentistry – tooth-coloured fillings.
What Are Tooth-Coloured Fillings?
Tooth-coloured fillings are regular fillings with a few twists and improvements.
They are made from materials similar to the natural shade of your teeth, relieving you of the inconvenient and unnatural colour of once-used amalgam.
Tooth-coloured fillings have the strength and durability of amalgam fillings, less the danger posed by mercury content, and the aesthetic benefits of looking like your natural teeth. You can hardly tell which are which!
Lightwood Dental’s tooth-coloured fillings restore a decayed tooth by filling in the hole left by the decay, hence restoring its function as well.
Benefits Of Tooth- Coloured Fillings
Tooth-coloured fillings are practical alternatives because they not only offer aesthetic improvement but are also loved for their stability.
The following are the benefits of choosing tooth-coloured fillings over other types of fillings:
- Restores/improves functions of the teeth by strengthening a decayed tooth.
- No mercury content. Definite long-term safety.
- No expansion or contraction when exposed to temperature changes unlike amalgam fillings, which can cause teeth to crack and eventually break.
- Procedure removes less of your existing tooth therefore more of your natural tooth can be saved.
- Blends well with the natural shade of your teeth.
- Doesn’t discolour the surrounding teeth unlike silver amalgam fillings.
- With proper care, tooth-coloured fillings can last for years.
- Improves smile impression.

- Decayed teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Worn teeth
- Gaps between teeth
