Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are designed to match the colour of your teeth, so that when you smile people don’t see a mouth of silver. At Chris Mercier Dental Practice we use a number of different composite (tooth coloured) fillings to allow us to place a filling that matches the colour of your tooth. We do not use dental amalgam (silver fillings) at the practice. The placement of a composite filling normally takes about 40 minutes and can be completed in one appointment.

compositeSometimes a cavity is too large to allow us to place a composite filling directly. In this case a dental inlay or onlay may be more suitable.

A dental inlay typically looks like natural teeth and fixes an existing tooth that is too damaged to support a tooth filling, but not so damaged that it needs a dental crown. It covers the chewing surface between the cusps, while onlays restore one or more fractured cusps. Both dental inlays and dental onlays are intended to repair the tooth's chewing surface.

Gold, tooth-coloured composite resin and porcelain are commonly used to create an inlay or onlay, and we will discuss which materials will be right for you, depending on aesthetic appeal, durability and your budget. Regardless of the material we recommend, inlays and onlays are often more durable than amalgam or composite fillings and less expensive than dental crowns.
