Dull metal fillings are a thing of the past, thanks to these tooth-coloured fillings and our aesthetic dentists.

Stop hiding your mouth when you laugh. Our tooth rebuilds look and function just like a proper tooth should, so nobody will know you have them.

Replacing silver fillings with composite fillings that look and feel more natural might seem like a daunting job. The good news is that we make everything from a full tooth rebuild to simply adding a tooth-coloured filling to your smile as easy as it can be. Our years of experience means that we can replace silver fillings while you sit back and relax.

If you need a cosmetic dentist in Bournemouth, Poole or anywhere else in Dorset, Smile Stories is where your search can end. Read on to find out more about our tooth-coloured filling options, why they’re a good idea and how we go about making your smile look and feel better than ever.

Your teeth don't have to be black

A tooth-coloured filling is almost invisible when it’s in your mouth. When we replace silver fillings for you, they blend in immediately with your other teeth. That means you can smile with more confidence, and the results can be life-changing.

From small to medium-sized fillings to a full tooth rebuild, we always preserve as much of your original tooth as possible. The result is a cleaner, more natural smile that you can be proud of. While replacing silver fillings with composite fillings might seem drastic, there are plenty of reasons why you might be considering it.

It’s not 1979, so why are dentists still placing mercury silver fillings in our mouths?

I think you know the answer (without getting too political)! The NHS is stretched way beyond its limits, and both time and money matter. Step up silver fillings, the quickest and cheapest way to fill a tooth after removing the decay, but far from the best way. 

Not only do they look black, but they can also damage your teeth. Let’s check out a few more of the major disadvantages of using traditional mercury fillings:

  • They’re made of hard metal and may cause your teeth to crack. This can lead to root canal treatments, costly crowns, a full tooth rebuild, and you could even lose a tooth.
  • They’re metal (obviously!), and metals conduct. If a metal filling is deep, it will absorb heat from the food and drinks you eat. If the filling is large, this can lead to sensitivity within the tooth. 
  • They leach out grey liquid, which can stain the rest of your tooth. 
  • They contain mercury. Enough said.

Don’t settle for less when it comes to your teeth. Take your first steps towards the smile you have always wanted!

Actually, We Don't Even Do “White Fillings”

There’s a big difference between a standard white filling and what we do here at Smile Stories with a tooth-coloured filling. Let’s take a look at the photos below. 

  • Exhibit A — What you probably associate with a “white filling”. A white-ish material is placed into a tooth to stop decay. 
  • Exhibit B — Smile Stories style. Keep looking; you may spot it! This is a hand-sculpted work of art placed by our aesthetic dentists.

Replacing silver fillings with composite tooth rebuilds can have a transformative effect on your smile confidence. Check out the Smile Stories of our wonderful clients and see how we helped them on their smile journeys.

Forget about fillings

It’s just not what we do. We’re not just filling holes. There’s a difference between bunging in white or silver materials as quickly as possible and replicating what nature intended. A tooth-coloured filling is simply a lot more than that.

If you’d like to know the fancy-pantsy, we’re being ‘biomimetic’, mimicking your biology. Teeth are living things and need to be treated that way, so we also protect the weaker or thinner parts of the tooth while we’re at it. 

Teeth have valleys and points, specific shapes and sizes, different layers. Only by replicating these do we make a tooth rebuild or a replacement tooth-coloured filling not only almost invisible but make it function as a proper tooth does. That means even when you’re biting and chewing, no fragile bits are going to randomly break off a few months later, and there’s no discomfort afterwards.

See how our tooth-coloured rebuilds can make such a difference to your smile!

Commonly Asked Questions about Tooth Rebuilds and Tooth Coloured Fillings

How long do tooth-coloured fillings last?

A tooth-coloured filling is made of a composite of plastic, glass particles and silica. At their core, they are a very close replication of the structure of a real tooth. That makes them very durable and they look and feel like teeth.

You can generally expect tooth-coloured fillings to last way over a decade often significantly longer. We place them to a gold-standard, but a lot will depend on how well you look after them and whether your dentist is helping you to protect them.

Can I eat after a tooth-coloured filling?

Yep, usually straight away! In the vast majority of cases, anybody who has just had either a full tooth rebuild or replacing silver fillings with composite fillings, everything is completely comfortable right away. You’ll likely be able to eat immediately after your visit to the dentist in Bournemouth.

Sometimes it is advisable to wait a couple of hours before you start chewing food, especially something chewy or hot.

Are tooth-coloured fillings toxic?

Absolutely not, tooth-coloured fillings are not toxic. As a bonus, the Smile Stories team place them with a protective rubber sheet over the tooth. This means that you won’t have any bitter tooth shampoo taste in your mouth too. We do look after you!

Do tooth-coloured fillings contain mercury?

Those old-style silver fillings were well-known for the use of mercury, which is one of the last things that you ever want to have in your mouth! Tooth-coloured fillings don’t contain a single trace of mercury, and they’re non-toxic too.

Can a tooth-coloured filling fall out?

Done by our expert team at Smile Stories, tooth-coloured composite rebuilds are placed in super dry conditions with a unique glue on a mini paintbrush.

The adhesive is tried and tested, so it very rarely happens. If the procedure is rushed like at some other clinics, it might not set properly or it gets contaminated. In that case, who knows!

General wear and tear on your filling over many years may result in it chipping or eventually coming loose. Our dentists at Smile Stories plan tooth-coloured rebuilds with you step by step, and if they think there’s a chance it won’t last, they’ll recommend a more suitable treatment.
