Increasingly we are asked to place natural colour fillings by people who want a more authentic looking smile. Whilst amalgam (metal) can be very practical and is sometimes necessary if you require a deep filling in a molar, it’s not always the most pleasing aesthetically.

Whether you need a new filling or wish (or are clinically required) to change an existing one, speak to us about your options. We will carefully select the correct shade and match your filling to ensure a good result both clinically and aesthetically.

Composite material (which we use in natural coloured fillings) can also be used for composite veneers, where one of us will apply the material to change the shape or colour of a tooth. This can even be used, if clinically suitable, to build up slight gaps in the teeth.

We always wish to deliver the best result that will make you smile with confidence so ask to see a selection of the photographs of treatments we have carried out before. Sean, Donal and Claire all have a wide range of case studies and will advise where natural coloured fillings are the best option.

A very professional team. I feel well looked after from when I enter the practice to when I leave. Quite possibly the best dental practice in Cornwall!!

Best dentist I have ever had.

So pleased with the practice. Donal is amazing, so kind and great with the kids he really put you at ease.

- Alison

I have been very impressed by the service given by the practice. Sean took great care to contact the cardiology team at Treliske for advice when I had to have a tooth removed following heart valve replacement. He goes to great pains to explain the options available and to give one time to make decisions.


I have always been most happy with my treatment and have every confidence in Sean . He makes my smile and makes me smile!
