Strong and durable, fillings offer a great solution incorporating both style and substance. Treatment is very straightforward and a local anaesthetic is used to prevent any discomfort or pain.
Often, fillings are used to restore teeth following cavity treatment, removing the decayed area of your tooth. They can also be used to repair cracked, worn and broken teeth.
On visiting our practice, treatment can be carried out in a single visit and our dentists will be able to match the colour of your filling to your existing tooth colour, giving a very natural result.
Before & After
Questions & Answers
Q: What are amalgam fillings?
Q: Why should I consider white fillings?
Q: Can I get them on the NHS?
There is a slight chance that some people may be sensitive to the metals used in silver amalgam fillings. If this sensitivity is proven, it may be best to replace the amalgam fillings with another type. (In very exceptional cases these replacements may be available on the NHS, if a consultant decides that a patient is extremely sensitive to these materials and asks for them to be replaced.)
Q: Are they expensive?
Q: Are they as good as silver amalgam fillings?
Q: Is it worth replacing my amalgam fillings with white ones?
Some dentists prefer not to put white fillings in back teeth, as they are not always successful. One way around this would be to use crowns or inlays, but this can mean removing more of the tooth and can be more expensive.
Q: What are tooth-coloured fillings made of?
Q: Where can I get them done?
Q: Are there any alternatives to fillings?
The dentist has to remove less of the tooth, which is obviously better.
As we have already said, there are alternatives such as crowns and inlays although they can cost a lot more. Veneers can be used on front teeth instead of crowns or fillings.
