Tooth Coloured Fillings
Composite resin fillings consist of an acrylic “resin” that is combined with “fillers” made of small glass particles. The resin helps provide flexibility while the fillers provide resistance to wear while also mimicking the translucency of natural teeth. Composite resin can be closely matched to the colour of your teeth and bonds well with tooth enamel. It is used for filling decayed teeth as well as for restoring chipped, broken or worn teeth.Glass ionomer fillings are made from an acrylic resin and often include a component of glass called fluoroaluminoscilate that slowly releases a small amount of fluoride to help strengthen the remaining portion of the tooth. As glass ionomer fillings aren’t as strong as composite resin, they are most often used for small restorations and fillings below the gum line. They are also often used for filling children’s primary teeth.
