White (tooth coloured) fillings

  • A procedure for minor dental corrections, ‘white fillings’, also known as composite bonding – offer a quick and affordable way to correct a variety of dental flaws such as:

    • Cracks
    • Chips
    • Gaps
    • Short or uneven teeth
    • Tooth decay
    • Discoloration

    What would a tooth coloured filling treatment involve?

    After inspecting the tooth in question, your dentist will select a colour for your filling that matches the teeth that surround it. Your dentist will then shape the white filling to fill in any cracks or gaps. A tooth-coloured filling can replicate the natural structure and colour of the tooth and is often difficult to detect once it has been placed. Another advantage of tooth-coloured fillings is that they contain no toxic materials, for example mercury.

    How long would a tooth coloured filling treatment take?

    A tooth-coloured filling can be completed in a single visit, unless you are having several teeth treated. Depending on the size and number of fillings, the procedure can take from half an hour to a couple of hours.

    How much do tooth coloured fillings cost?

    Our tooth-coloured fillings range in cost from £180 to £220, depending on the size and extent of treatment required. This will be determined by the clinician.
