For this reason, we only use tooth-coloured, mercury-free white fillings on all teeth, created from contemporary materials and designed to blend in with your natural tooth colour. For minor cosmetic changes to the shape of front teeth we can also use the same technique which is often called bonding or instant veneers.
These are filings that are used instead of silver fillings. These are placed directly into your mouth, more than one filling can be placed at a time. They look like your natural tooth and do not contain any mercury.
Veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are stuck to the front of your teeth to create a fantastic smile. Veneers are used to improve the shape of teeth.
A crown covers the whole tooth to improve its appearance and function. The type of crown used depends on why and where it’s being placed. An inlay is made outside of the mouth either by a dental technician or using our Cerec system. An inlay is advised then the hole in the tooth is too big for a direct filling but a crown is not advised. It is like a piece of a puzzle that is made to fit perfectly for your tooth.
