Composite fillings are more commonly know as ‘the white filling’ because of its tooth coloured appearance. There are various shades of composite filling that can be chosen by your dentist to closely match the surrounding teeth. These fillings are high in strength and require minimal healthy tooth removal.
For all Anterior teeth composite fillings can be placed on the NHS. If you wanted composite on a posterior tooth and you are an NHS patient, this can be done on a private basis.
