Can I have tooth coloured fillings?

Yes at Bovey Dental Practice all direct fillings are done with tooth coloured composites.

Do composites discolour? We use very good materials with very low
shrinkage this means that they look good for much longer and do not pick
up as much stain as in the past. We currently use Voco Amaris highly
aesthetic composite for anterior fillings which achieves natural
aesthetics with chameleon effect for invisible restorations.

Do they last? As long as they are placed carefully using bonding agents.
We currently use Voco GrandioSO toothlike composite for reliable
posterior fillings. In comparison to other restorative materials it has
low abrasion, low creep and high shape stability. These properties are
fundamental requirements for long term intact biting surfaces and
restoration margins.
