Direct composites or white fillings are perhaps the most commonly used cosmetic product in dentistry.
White fillings have become the normal way of treating any cavity at the front of the mouth and are commonly used for even quite large fillings at the back of the mouth. They are based on materials developed in the 1970s and have been improved upon through many generations of materials over the past 30 years.
Fundamentally they are a plastic resin combined with minute silca particles that gives an amazing blend of strength, flexibility and aesthetics.
They are chemically and micromechanically bonded to enamel and dentine to give a tight seal between the filling and the tooth.
When looking to enhance a smile they can be used to build up worn teeth, widen teeth to close gaps and coat teeth to hide stains and fractures. Because they are built up directly in the mouth they can achieve same day results and when being used to build teeth can involve little or no adjustment to the underlying teeth.
