Tooth Coloured Fillings in Lukcnow
If you’re suffering from tooth decay, chipped teeth, or cracked teeth, dental fillings may be the best solution for you. At Mint Dental in Lucknow, our dentists provide white tooth fillings, inlays, and onlays to restore your teeth to their original natural appearance.

Furthermore, Dr. Atul Singh is a member of Indian Dental Association and has over a decade of experience providing exceptional dentistry.
Why Composite Tooth Fillings?
For most fillings on back teeth, we use a natural looking, cosmetic resin. Composite fillings are made up of a strong, plastic material that is easy to apply and difficult to detect. This white material produces a long-lasting, natural-looking filling. When the size of a cavity is too large for this material, we are then able to use ceramic, tooth-colored partial crowns called onlays. These onlays are made in 2 visits to the office and are also a durable, cosmetic solution.
How Do I Know If I Need Tooth Fillings?
We may recommend composite tooth fillings for a number of reasons, including:
- Severe tooth decay
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
You may need dental fillings if you suddenly experience discomfort in your teeth. Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures or a toothache that doesn’t subside could be a warning sign of decay or possibly even a dental fracture.
If you have discomfort or break a tooth, then you may also benefit from receiving a restoration such as a tooth inlay or onlay.
A composite tooth filling/restoration is a common option for repairing a cavity. In the past, they were made from metal, also known as amalgam. Now, Lucknow dentist Dr. Atul Singh offer a more aesthetically pleasing option. Made from composite resin, this white material can actually be shaded to better blend with your surrounding tooth structure.
There are many benefits to composite tooth fillings over amalgam fillings. The result is a repair practically invisible to other people. We can complete the dental filling in just one visit, fixing your tooth and preventing further discomfort for a lifetime. Composite tooth fillings are also completely safe and non-toxic.
Tooth Inlays and Onlays
In some situations, decay or damage may require more than a dental filling. If a tooth doesn’t need a full dental crown, we can offer an alternative with either an inlay or an onlay. The inlay consists of a small piece of porcelain crafted at a dental lab by an expert ceramist.
The restoration is used to cover the center portion of the tooth. Likewise, an onlay is also fabricated from porcelain but the doctor uses this option to cover the top surface of the tooth or one or more of the cusps. Patients enjoy a conservative approach to dental restoration when compared to a tooth crown.
For our Lucknow patients Dr. Atul Singh uses porcelain because the material mimics the appearance of enamel and offers decades of strong and secure smile improvement.
