Wherever possible your dentist at Portwall Dental Surgery will try to avoid the use of silver amalgam fillings preferring instead to offer natural tooth coloured white (composite resin) fillings that use the latest bonding technology to restore and mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure.

White Fillings at Portwall Dental Surgery

In addition to restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth coloured fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the size, colour and shape of teeth. This quality is particularly useful in closing gaps between teeth; repairing chipped teeth and making teeth appear to be more straight or even.

Recent advances in materials now mean that white composite resin fillings not only offer excellent aesthetic appeal but compare in durability and life expectancy to that of silver amalgam fillings. 

The life expectancy of a white composite filling can depend on the depth of tooth decay and position of the tooth in the mouth; your dentist will be able to advise you accordingly.


For very badly damaged teeth we can use white porcelain to construct beautiful and realistic laboratory made crowns and inlays. Porcelain is also used for veneers on front teeth.

Prices for white composite fillings start from £134.50.
