Tooth Coloured Fillings

Dr. Simpson offers different types of tooth coloured fillings. One type is the composite resin filling material which can be used on front or back teeth to create “invisible” fillings. This type of filling is done in one visit and the newer composite resin fillings are very long lasting and associated with less sensitivity than with the previous generation of composites.

Sometimes a porcelain filling will be recommended especially if the filling is larger. Porcelain fillings tend to be stronger than the composite resin fillings and are even more beautiful and natural looking.
