Tooth restorations (fillings) are used to replace natural tooth structure when a small section of a tooth is lost or becomes unhealthy due to caries (decay), tooth wear or breakages.
At Tooth Zone tooth coloured filling materials (composite resin) are used which are designed to look more natural as well as being strong and durable.
Unlike amalgam (silver) restorations, tooth coloured filling materials bond to the natural tooth structure and can prevent cracks and splits from increasing.
Tooth coloured filling materials can also be used on your front teeth to match your existing tooth shade and be unnoticeable.
Using Fluorescence only the part of the tooth affected by decay is cleaned and replaced with composite filling material.
A photographic record is made before during and after the procedure and the patient can see how we have progressed with filling the tooth.
