White fillings

Are you concerned about a cracked or chipped tooth – or do you have noticeable metal fillings? When your teeth start to show signs of decay, fillings can be applied to small and developing cavities to prevent further deterioration and restore your teeth to their original shape.

Our dental team can also replace old metal fillings with natural-looking white fillings, so you no longer need to feel self-conscious about your smile. We always keep our treatments as affordable as possible.

When do I need a filling?

As well as being used to replace metal fillings, fillings can correct problems like:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Tooth decay
  • Discoloured teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Signs that you may require a filling include toothache, bad breath, sensitivity, pain when eating, and dark areas on the tooth’s surface.

White (composite) fillings are made of ceramic and powdered glass added to a resin base. This can be adapted to a shade that matches your teeth, so it blends with your smile perfectly.

What are the benefits of white fillings?

White (composite) fillings are made of ceramic and powdered glass added to a resin base. They were once only used for front teeth because of their softer finish, but dentistry advancements have made them strong enough to support back teeth. Fillings can be adapted to a shade that matches your teeth, so it blends with your smile perfectly.

  • Fantastic aesthetics so they can be created to resemble your teeth
  • Support teeth that have been weakened by decay and straighten crooked teeth
  • More flexible than amalgam (metal) fillings
  • Versatile with a variety of uses

What can I expect from my fillings procedure?

Having a tooth filling is a straightforward procedure. We will perform a deep clean of your mouth and suggest pain relief, which may involve a local anaesthetic.

The tooth is then prepared, and any decay removed, so no bacteria remains. The mixture is applied to the tooth in stages. The tooth is carefully shaped to look as close to the original as possible.
