Types of Tooth Fillings

Find UK Dentists »

There are many different types of fillings available, although not all dentists provide all of them.  It is important to think about where the filling is and what the advantages of the different filling types are.  They all have advantages and disadvantages, for example white composite fillings are of high aesthetic value whereas amalgam fillings are very durable. Composite and glass ionomer are soft and can be molded to mimic the shape of your tooth before hardening. They also have great aesthetics and many patients who have had traditional fillings often return to their dentist to have them switched for better looking composite fillings.  You will be able to discuss your options with your dentist.
