As well as providing an effective repair for tooth decay or damage, composite (or white) fillings are also a natural-looking alternative to more obvious amalgam fillings. This is because they are made from tooth-coloured resin; a mixture of plastic and glass that blends in beautifully with your teeth.

They support the structure of a damaged tooth, helping to prevent further breakage or sensitivity, and can be placed in the front or back teeth.

To prevent decay forming around the composite filling, it is important to brush at least twice a day and see your dentist for regular check-ups.
