We can now make fillings appear invisible to blend into your natural tooth colour. These are known as white fillings. Silver amalgam fillings can weaken and split your teeth, white fillings make your teeth stronger by using a bonding technique, they will also make your smile look much healthier. Our tooth coloured fillings are long-lasting and with modern techniques, more of your natural tooth can be conserved, extending its biological life.
Dr Erum Khan, BDS, LDS RCS (Edin) GDC No: 80095 has helped many patients to transform their smiles whether it’s simply changing silver fillings to white fillings, or with a variety of other affordable cosmetic dental procedures.

Patients who feel nervous about having a new tooth filling, or having their silver filling changed for white ones, but would like an additional helping hand, we can offer oral or IV sedation.

The best type of tooth coloured white filling for you can only be decided once we have seen you. We generally use two types. One is made by a dental laboratory which is used if a large amount of natural tooth has been lost. This is known as either a dental inlay or onlay. The other option is applied directly onto your tooth using a putty type material which can be moulded into shape and then sets hard once a special light is shone on it.
At Montrose Smile Studio, we’ll discuss your options when you come to see us and then advise which one is best for the condition of your tooth. Many people no longer want their smile marred by traditional grey amalgam fillings, and are instead requesting tooth-coloured alternatives to naturally blend in with their teeth. Our tooth-coloured fillings are strong and long-lasting just like the old mercury fillings.
